Shungite is a carbon-rich stone that’s believed to reduce inflammation, oxidative stress, and EMF exposure. Some also claim it can purify water and relieve emotional stress.
The protection that shungite offers is in helping you not pick up negative energies from other people, and to be more easily able to clarify and be firm with your boundaries. Shungite helps you know what energy is “yours” and what belongs to other people and lets you release responsibility for it. Thus it makes a good stone for those in the healing professions to protect their personal energy and not take on energy from others. It would make a great gift for a nurse, therapist, or reiki practitioner!
