This amazing piece is a lightly polished cube of lovely Shungite where the apex of one corner has been cut away so that the cube now stands perfectly solid at a canted angle.
Fascinating to look at, this is a good size cube, over 60mm each side, which definitely has an air of "solidity" about it.
If you love Shungite, you're going to love this !
It is said that Shungite increases all that is good for us and diminishes all that is bad for us.
Shungite is a soft mineral and this cube has been polished to a "satin sheen" finish, however, the surface is not 100% absolutely smooth and one or two very slight surface imperfections are present and some tiny lines where the piece was probably held while it was being shaped.
To all intents and purposes you could think of this as 98% perfect !
Size approx. 62mm x 62mm x 62mm
Weight approx. 586grms
Shungite Properties and Meaning
Crystal Healing Properties, Metaphysical and Gemstone Meaning
Shungite is a remarkable mineral of uncertain origin. It is a natural non-crystalline Carbon whose formation has been dated to approximately 2 billion years ago. The problem being that 2 billion years ago there were no plants or life on earth to create Carbon! Shungite also contains a rare form of Carbon called Buckminster Fullerenes, one of only 4 modifications of Carbon ever discovered. Metaphysically, Shungite provides a shielding effect from the potentially harmful rays of electromagnetic radiation given off by items such as microwave ovens, TV sets, mobile phones and computers. It is also said to help with headaches, stomach ache, back ache and general non specific pain.
Shungite is noted for its general ability to heal, clean, save, protect, neutralise and regenerate. It is said to eliminate and absorb all that presents itself as a hazard to people and other living beings, but at the same time, is also said to concentrate and restore all that is helpful for the existence of human beings.
Shungite is alleged to protect against the evil eye, alien negativity fields and negative influences in general.
