Explore the Mystic World of Gems, Jewellery, Crystals & Healing Stones: Shungite
Lucknow, January 24 || In recent years, healing stones and crystals have become increasingly popular. These stones are said to possess qualities beneficial in enhancing the health of your Mind, Body and Soul in various ways. There are many types of Healing Crystals and today I shall share about a very amazing and mysterious stone called "Shungite".
What is Shungite?
The name is derived from the Karelian village of Shun'ga in Russia where the stone was first discovered. It's a black stone made up of 99% carbon, which has a unique composition containing "Fullerenes" a 3D spherical molecule made of 60 carbon atoms being naturally present in Shungite making it unique. Along with 'Fullerene' it consists of nearly all the minerals on the periodic table.
Origin Of Shungite
Its origin is in itself a mystery. Because typically materials made of carbon come from decayed organic substances like old forests, but this Stone contains atoms of carbon ' Fullerene' naturally & Shungite is thought to be atleast 2 billion years.
This is before organic life existed on the planet. Some theories of its origin include: A large " Meteorite" collided into Earth, depositing Shungite in its Crust. Shungite formed due to micro- organisms in nearby water. The composition of organic matter in sedimentary rocks changed overtime.
Scientists are in awe of Shungite, being unsure of its origin or how it came into being, yet they can't shy away from banking on its potential benefits in relation to the content of " Natural Fullerene" found in it.
History of Shungite
Russian chronicles of the 17th & 18th century bear witness to its usage as a Healing Stone during that time. The first official writing mentioning the Healing powers of Shungite takes us back during the reign of Ivan The Terrible and his son Feodar- I which saw the end of Rukrid dynasty.
