Elite Shungite Explained


Types of shungite stones

         Shungite stones can be divided into three types depending on the carbon content. Type III (regular shungite) and type II (Petrovsky shungite) contain 30-50% and 50-70% carbon, respectively. All the shaped products on the market, like pyramids, spheres, bracelets, etc., are made of regular shungite since it is the most common type of shungite that can be easily shaped and polished.

         Type I shungite is called noble or elite shungite, and it contains from 90 to 98 percent of organic carbon. Elite shungite nuggets have shiny silvery surfaces and high energetic potential due to the amount of carbon. The deposits of elite shungite are extremely scarce, and it amounts to less than one percent of all shungite found. It is the purest and rarest type of shungite. Noble shungite is usually mined out of the ground manually, while types II and III shungite are not so fragile and are available for an industrial digging in the quarries.
