How Do I Get Started with Shungite?

Now that you've decided to shungify your home, where do you start?

Ideally, you would have some shungite on your person - jewelry or a pocket stone - as well as larger pieces in the rooms where you spend the most time. Typically, this is your bedroom and office or workplace. Shungite is especially helpful in high-EMF areas where electronics are kept - computers, wifi routers, mobile phone base stations, baby monitors, entertainment centers, etc. More electronics mean more electropollution, hence a greater need for protection. An EMF meter may be helpful in identifying the "hotspots" in your home. 

Here are a few general guidelines that may be helpful. 

  1. The larger the piece of shungite, the stronger it is - meaning, the greater its range of influence.
  2. Elite (noble) shungite is more powerful than black shungite because it contains a higher percentage of fullerenes (large, spherical carbon-based molecules) 
  3. More shungite is better than less. Its ranges are just estimates, and the variables are many. 
  4. It is desirable to create overlapping layers of protection. For example, wear a shungite pendant and have a pyramid next to your wifi router.
  5. Stay within your budget. There is no need to overspend. Stress is not helpful when it comes to your heath, and increasing your health is the ultimate goal!

Zones of Influence

In her 2014 book Shungite: Protection, Healing and Detoxification, Regina Martino lists the following "beneficial influence zones" for shungite spheres and pyramids. These ranges are for neutral zones. So, a shungite object placed in an area of disturbance such as a room with high EMFs will have a reduced zone of influence. 

Pyramids and spheres are the only two shapes she listed. For other shapes and sizes (cubes, bricks, merkabas, etc), just use your best judgement. I always shoot for a larger size than what this chart suggests for any room with known sources of EMFs - routers, televisions, cordless phone base stations, baby monitors, and other electronic equipment.

Spheres are recommended for bedrooms as being the most conducive for sleep. Pyramids are recommended for rooms where you want more mental stimulation such as the office, den, or living room.

 Shungite Shape Size (Inches) Range of Influence (Feet)
Pyramid 2 6.9 - 7.5
Pyramid 2.4 8.2 - 8.9
Pyramid  2.8 9.5 - 10.5
Pyramid 3.1 11.5 - 12.8
Pyramid 3.5 13.8 - 15
Pyramid 3.9 16.4 - 17.7
Sphere 1.6 6.6
Sphere 2 8.9
Sphere 2.4 12
Sphere 2.8 16.4
Sphere 3.1 21.7
Sphere 3.5 29.2
Sphere 3.9 39.4

Natalie, it’s really personal preference on all those things! The huge spheres are great due to their distance, but in a den, a pyramid – or even one at each end of the room – would be fine. I also will be getting some bricks in before too long, and those are excellent too – easy to hide in a book shelf. The phone plates are round or rectangular just to have choices, but the function is the same.

Hi, I am trying to decide what to get for 2 specific purposes: One is in our den where the wifi router is located and the entire family spends a very significant amout of time. My home is an open layout so the den leads itself right into the kitchen from one end, and to the living room from the other end. I see the note about using pyramids for non-bedroom locations, but I also see on the guide that the largest sphere will give me much more distance of protection than a pyramid. What do you recommend? Also, my large desktop computer is located about 10 feet away from the router. Whatever i get would hopefully cover that as well. Also, do you prefer the round or rectangular phone attachments for iphones? Thank you so much!

Shungite water is safe at any age, but I would limit quantity until you know how a person reacts. See the blog post about detox reactions.

I have no idea why they prepare C60 in oil… that would be a question for those manufacturers. The reason for putting shungite water in a glass dispenser is simply to avoid plastic and all the chemicals that can leach from it.

I will try this with my mom who suffers from dementia. Just a small one because she is 87 yrs old. Do you think this is safe for her?

I would like to understand why if water is purified and enhanced by placing it in a glass vessel … why is C-60 prepared in oil?

I guarantee my products are real shungite! As for your question Jonny, I would place a pyramid near the computer. The size depends on how near (see the chart). It’s also a good idea to place one near the wifi router, if you have wifi. The more overlapping areas of protection, the better. That’s why I love the shungite pendants – they go with you as you move around.

Although very uncommon, shungite can prompt a healing crisis. If you suddenly begin feeling worse instead of better when you start wearing your shungite jewelry, you could be experiencing a healing crisis - also known as a “detox reaction” or “Jarisch-Herxheimer” reaction...
