Gemstone Properties

When it comes to EMF protection, I have put a great deal of time and thought into which gemstones have the most to offer. A few crystals are said to be very good for protecting and shielding us from EMFs, so these are the ones I work with. Of course, shungite reigns supreme - and it does have some science to back it up.

In addition to shungite, black tourmaline, smokey quartz, amazonite, aventurine, unakite, sodalite, hematite, pyrite, and charoite stand out. Many other crystals offer supportive benefits, including lapis lazuli, malachite, azurite, jasper, fluorite, epidote, and amethyst.

In this document, I have put together a partial list of the gemstones I use in my work (listed alphabetically) and their reported properties. This list is not comprehensive but it's enough to get you started! If you want more information about shungite, please refer to my comprehensive report, Shungite: The Electropollution Solution.

For additional information about the other stones and crystals, I recommend these books:
