Short Shungite Necklace, Blue Gemstones, Throat Chakra, Communication

This necklace is a treasure trove of benefits for the throat chakra!

A string of genuine black shungite beads encircle your neck and shoulders, blending into a beautiful gradation of powerful violet gemstones in the front. A few sterling silver spacer beads have been added for accent.

The blue gemstones in this necklace include:

Blue kyanite
K2
Lapis lazuli
Chalcedony
Angelite
Aquamarine
Blue lace agate

    Blue crystals and gemstones resonate with the throat chakra. Their  number one claim to fame is communication!

    Blue gemstones enhance our ability to have open, honest, clear and concise communication with ourselves and others, easing communications and preventing misunderstandings.

    They promote good insight and intuition, clarity, and ability to express our deepest personal truths. They can also boost feelings of kindness, compassion and respect for others.

    The blues can also foster feelings of safety, stability, and security by improving wisdom and discernment, helping us make better decisions due to heightened mental clarity.

    Blue crystals may also stimulate creativity and awaken your artistic side!

    The necklace is strung on very strong - but flexible - jewelry wire for excellent drape and durability. Take care to not over-bend the necklace as the cording has a wire core which can kink if bent beyond a certain point.

    It closes with a beautiful, strong sterling silver magnetic clasp, which you can read more about below.

    More About the Clasp

    The bracelet comes with a sturdy, self-aligning sterling silver Mag-Lok clasp, which is an extremely strong rare earth magnet. To open the clasp, SLIDE the two halves apart - DO NOT PULL (a thumbnail is handy to get it started).

    Those with pacemakers should NOT use these magnets. If you want the Mag-lok swapped out for a sterling lobster clasp, leave me a Note upon checkout.

    Shipping

    We make every attempt to ship orders out in a timely manner. In most cases, we will get your order out in 1-2 business days.

    Once your package is in the hands of the shipper, it is out of our hands. If you have provided an email address, you will receive tracking updates. We only have access to the same tracking information as you.

    If there is a problem with your delivery, the most expedient way to resolve it is to contact your local US Post Office or other shipper (UPS, Fedex, etc), to inquire as to the whereabouts of your package.

    We do ship internationally to select countries. There are import and export restrictions that prohibit certain items, so we cannot ship to all countries.

    In addition to shipping costs, please be aware that taxes and fees vary by country and can be quite substantial.

    When you complete an international purchase from Shungite Queen, you will be charged for shipping but not for taxes, duties and brokerage fees - those will be due upon receipt.

    If you are considering a purchase for shipment outside the USA, we encourage you to first check your import fee regulations before you complete your purchase in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises! There may be an online tax and duty calculator or chart for your country.

    For example, here is a calculator for Canada. Alternately, this page provides a chart with UPS import brokerage fees for Canada based on the declared value of the shipment.

    There is something called "self clearing" whereby one can, reportedly, avoid paying customs brokerage fees. This article describes the process for doing this.

    What's So Special About Shungite?

    Shungite helps protect the wearer from the effects of manmade electromagnetic radiation. Its unique molecular carbon structure transforms them into frequencies that are biologically harmless - frequencies that more closely resemble those produced by the earth herself. Many people who are electrosensitive report feeling better when wearing shungite or having it nearby. Shungite is also said to block negative energy and act as a detoxifier.

    FAQ

    FAQ

    What's the big deal about EMFs? 

    The latest research on EMFs suggests they can produce a boatload of nasty effects on our health, including brain and heart tumors, cardiac arrhythmias, reproductive problems, hormone disruption - and the list goes on. You can read more about this here.

    Where do you get your shungite, and how do you assure quality?

    I have spent a great deal of time identifying high quality, reliable sources both in the US and Russia, where shungite is mined. When I find a good supplier, I make every effort to nurture that relationship. Service is everything! I also test every batch of shungite I receive for authenticity. For more about this, see my YouTube video.

    What type of shungite do you use for your products?

    This is probably my most frequently asked question!

    The majority of my products are made from black shungite. Black shungite (type 2) is far more suitable for jewelry and accessories because it can be shaped, tumbled, drilled, and polished into forms (beads, pendants, spheres, pyramids, and so on). Black shungite (type 2) contains about 50 to 70 percent carbon, with the remaining 30 to 50 percent being a mixture of a wide variety of different elements.

    Elite (noble) shungite, aka "type 1," is a completely different form. Although it's stronger in terms of EMFs, it is very crumbly and friable. Therefore, elite is best used in its raw form for making shungite water, or as loose pebbles in a bowl or as a beautiful solid nugget. Elite shungite is 90 to 98 percent pure carbon and therefore has the highest concentration of fullerenes - the special molecules that give shungite its unique properties. Elite is much more expensive because of its rarity, representing the top 1 percent of all shungite mined.

    In my store, unless a listing specifies "elite shungite," it is black shungite.

    There is one more type of shungite that I don't usually carry due to its extreme rarity - Petrovsky Shungite. Petrovsky dates back to the time of Peter the Great and consists of 70 to 80 percent carbon, yet it can still withstand grinding and shaping for beads, pendants, and sculptures.

    How do I select shungite for my home?

    Each shungite piece has a range of effects based on its size and shape, so different pieces can be used for different rooms based on the size and type of the room. For example, pyramids are recommended in rooms where you want to be awake and alert, such as an office, den or living room. Spheres have a softer energy that is more calming, so they are more suitable for a bedroom or nursery. For more about this, as well as information about the range of effects, refer to my Shungite Recommendations post.

    Ultimately, when selecting shungite - be it jewelry, a gift, or a shungite garden - go with your gut. Use your intuition. What piece calls to you? What do you feel drawn to? We are energetic beings, and thoughts and feelings are energy. We just have to listen.

    My EMF meter shows NO difference with shungite - what's up with that?

    There are several videos on the web that claim to show shungite blocking EMFs. When I did this experiment for myself - passing a piece of shungite between my meter and Wi-Fi router - the numbers DID drop. However, they ALSO dropped when I passed other solid objects between the meter and the router, including my own hand! I don't know exactly how the physics works, but if you consider what shungite does, it makes sense that EMF readings would not change. Why? Because EMF meters are quantitive not qualitative. 

    Due to shungite's unique molecular structure, it does not block, trap, or filter out EMFs. Instead, it alters their energetic/vibrational characteristics to make them more biologically compatible. 

    Meters measure the level of EMFs but not the vibrational quality, so they are not a reliable test for shungite. The only way you can be sure your shungite is working is to be sure it is authentic shungite, as explained above.

    My shungite leaves black residue on my skin. Is this normal?

    Yes, this is normal and usually temporary!

    Shungite is a soft mineral, and after drilling and shaping, a fine powdery black residue can remain. After all, it's carbon! This residue can sometimes be found on the leather of a necklace or bracelet after being threaded through a bead hole (despite my attempts to wipe it off), on one's wrist from a bracelet, or on the bottom of a shungite tile (which is unpolished). This is normal and nothing to worry about - as I see it, a small price to pay for the special health benefits it offers.

    Black shungite residue washes off easily with a little soap and water. You should see my hands after I unpack a shungite shipment!

    Can I get my shungite wet?

    I don't recommend exposing your shungite to water (with the exception of using elite shungite to make shungite water, which will be discussed shortly). Shungite is very soft and will dissolve, which you will see as a trickle of gray water. You should always remove your shungite jewelry when swimming or taking a shower. 

    Why does my shungite piece have little metallic specs?

    In addition to carbon, shungite contains a wide variety of natural elements. The most common is the mineral pyrite which is present in little specs and veins - these are the metallic spots you see. In fact, pyrite is so common that these characteristic metallic inclusions are one of the indicators that your piece is genuine shungite.

    Interestingly, these little specs and veins frequently become brighter and more noticeable with time and wear. Because shungite is SO soft, as a piece is worn and handled, any thin layer of shungite over a vein slowly wears off to reveal the pyrite inclusions below. This is perfectly normal and just adds to the natural beauty of the piece!

    Do I need to "clear" my shungite?

    I am often asked if shungite needs to be "cleared" like many crystals by setting it out in the sunlight or moonlight, etc. There are conflicting recommendations about this. Some - including crystal expert Judy Hall - say that you do have to clear it. 

    On the other hand, Regina Martino, who write the book on shungite, writes there is no need to clear shungite because of the unique way in which it works. It doesn’t trap or filter or collect negative energies - it transforms them energetically. Because it’s not hanging onto anything, there is nothing to clear. I tend to go with Martino because she studied shungite intensively for many years.

    That said, it certainly won't hurt anything to put your shungite items out in the sun, especially if it makes you feel better. I have salt lamps at home, and on occasion I have draped my gemstone jewelry over them.

    LOVE

    Was going to order a simple necklace of shungite beads, but when I went back to order it, the Necklace with Chrysocolla & African Turquoise Beads jumped out at me. The clincher was that the simple necklace I had planned to purchase was sold out. How perfect! This necklace is now my favorite! From the moment I put it on, I felt lighter, joyous. Like some of your other reviewers, I almost hate to take it off. I feel protected and enlivened - and beautifully adorned. Look out - I may be compelled to purchase another of your creations! Thank you so much!

    Happy customer

    I’m very pleased with the quality and look of the necklaces I purchased for myself, my husband and our two young boys. I explained to my boys why we are wearing them and they are so into it. I love how mindful they are becoming. I feel better knowing we are all a little safer. Thank you Shungite Queen!

    Beautiful necklace

    Since receiving my necklace, I've been wearing it almost daily because it's so attractive, and may be making me feel good too! I love the subtle mix of colors creating a greyed purple hue. It's quite long and flexible enough that the strand can be easily roped around the neck twice into a shorter, double strand – which is quite chic!

    Elegant & Practical

    This handmade necklace is not only gorgeous and elegant, it is practical too! I'm typically not that into jewelry but have not been able to resist purchasing a few pieces from Shungite Queen because they are beautiful and I feel calmer and more grounded when wearing them. It is also comforting to know they are protecting me from EMFs. This necklace is my favorite but I love them all. Meticulous beadwork, superior quality, excellent customer service, and fast delivery.

    My favorite necklace

    This necklace is well made and hangs nicely and not at all stiff like when necklaces are poorly crafted. The colors are beautiful.
