What an extraordinary piece this is! This large shungite merkaba measures a about 3 inches in diameter (75mm), and is hand-carved from one solid piece of black shungite.
The merkaba comes with a custom made square wooden stand about 6 inches in diameter, made by my wood artist and friend, Mike Stark of Olympia, Washington.
Each merkaba is slightly different due to shungite's natural mineral inclusions and veins. Being hand-carved and not machined, you will appreciate all the little variations and imperfections. Even little divots and grooves that look like they don't belong and probably (I'm guessing) reflect a change in angle by the carver! The imperfections and the sheer time it took to make these - notwithstanding the rarity of finding chunks of shungite large enough to carve these objects - makes them truly special.
What is a merkaba?
A merkaba (sometimes spelled "merkabah") is an eight-pointed three-dimensional star in sacred geometry. The merkaba is said to be the "divine light vehicle" used by ascended masters to connect with the higher realms, something like a chariot. "Mer" means light, "Ka" means spirit, and "Ba" means body. With its intersecting triangles, it represents the connection between the human and the Divine.
What does shungite do, exactly?
Shungite can protect us from EMFs. How? Its unique molecular carbon structure transforms the EMFs into biologically harmless frequencies. Many people who are sensitive to EMFs feel better with shungite nearby. Shungite is also said to block negative energy and acts as a detoxifier of free radicals, viruses, bacteria, chemicals, and other toxic agents. Genuine shungite is extremely rare and comes from only one place - Karelia, Russia.
