Shungite vs Shieldite: What is the Difference?

Posted by Karelian_Heritage 23/01/2019 2 Comment(s) Shungite 101,



      You might have noticed that there is a new product in the field of EMF protection called “shieldite”. Some of you have definitely noticed, since we have received a number of messages asking to explain what the difference between this shieldite and our favorite shungite actually is. Surely with all this confusion we also wanted to set the record straight and explain to you this difference. So we dug deep in order to understand this new product and see where shungite comes into play.



      First thing that drew out attention was the fact that none of the resources which advertise shieldite can give a comprehensive answer on what it actually is. Yes, it is carbon-based, yes, it has fullerenes, duh, but that is the maximum of it. Some resources also say that it is “a very rare mineral made of silicate and crystalline carbon with a unique molecular structure” (meaning fullerens). Sounds kind of… vague, to say the least. No information on its origin, history, it isn’t even clear if it’s actually natural mineral or is it man-made. Skipping these, we guess, boring and unimportant parts, all the resources rush right into the overwhelming properties of shieldite and why it is so unique. Of course, we don’t want to jump into conclusions, but it all seems shady to us. Especially, since we always try our best to provide clear and detailed information about shungite. We know exactly where it comes from, how it is processed and what gives it all the positive properties it has, based on our personal experience and a number of scientific research. Most important, as shungite seller we have an ultimate proof – the certificate of origin and authenticity, which shieldite sellers lack. authentic-shungite-test


      What’s more, in a number of promotional materials shieldite is claimed to be “the only EMF protection device that transmutes EMFs rendering them harmless”. Well, if you are familiar with our work, you should know that this is not true. Our great experience (and not only our, yours too) in working with shungite proves it to be one of the most effective means in battling EMF, along with some other minerals we have worked with over the years. More than that, all of these claims lack fundamental scientific and/or empirical backing, hence rendering them void in our eyes. Whereas shungite was studied numerous times over the last hundred years by respectable scientific institutions of the world, such as the Academy of Science of the USSR and later Russia, Universities of the UK and USA.  That basis gives the assurance both to us and to our clients on the genuine nature of shungite properties. 


      We have also noticed instances where shungite is advertised and sold under the name of shieldite. So as we see, shieldite sellers use its name to sell a large array of products with EMF protection properties. If you are looking for the real shungite, it is not very hard to check its authenticity. The large number of products sold under the name of shieldite use different components such as bio-ceramics, volcanic minerals or synthesized materials, a lot of which are not elecroconductive. Shungite, on the other hand, is highly conductive mineral, so putting it in the electric chain should prove whether it is genuine or not. Just take battery and electric bulb and wire it through shungite to see the results.


      To sum up, we don’t say that shieldite products are necessarily ineffective or straight up fraud. A lot of people buy these products and enjoy their properties. Yet we do question their general effectiveness because we have no evidence that they work, we do not know their origin or even what they are composed of. As the certified sellers we know the necessity of guarantee that our goods are the real thing, so that you, our clients, will only get the genuine high-quality products. Especially when dealing with such a sensitive subject as personal protection or protection of your household and people close to you.



      Shungite is a mineral that has proved over and over its effectiveness in EMF protection field. You can see it the numerous researches or even in the reviews of our clients in our website. We work every day to ensure the highest quality and authenticity of our product and we hope that it will bring peace, harmony and security in your life. Check out our shungite EMF protection products to make sure that you are secured from negative elements and influences around you!
