We make shungite bricks from a solid slab of shungite stone. Then we grind it, so the surface of the stone looks smooth and pleasant to the touch. But we do not polish the shungite brick so that it looks like a mirror. Therefore, this shungite block has an unpolished surface.
Polished and Unpolished Surface
The surface type does not affect the ability of shungite brick.
- Unpolished surface has a light black color. In addition, this surface is rough to the touch and looks natural. On such surface inclusions of pyrite and Quartzite in the form of veins are well distinguished. These minerals are integral companions of this rare black mineral. On the unpolished surface of the shungite brick, there may also be traces of fingers. It is better to hold such products by the ends.
- However, a polished surface has a rich black color in contrast to the unpolished surface. Also, the polished surface is smooth to the touch and reflects light. Pay attention to such a surface may remain traces of fingers. However, these marks can be washed off with water, but do not rub the highly polished surface of the shungite block. This can damage the thin layer of polishing. It should also be noted that on the polished surface, the veins of pyrite and Quartzite are difficult to distinguish. But they can be seen if you turn this product at a certain angle to the light.
Shungite brick and quartz and pyrite.
Real shungite stone from Karelia contains quartz and pyrite. In turn, these two minerals are white and yellow. Therefore, white and yellow veins of quartz and pyrite appear on the surface of the shungite stone. In this case, quartz can be in the form of specks, as shown in our photo. Also, the mineral pyrite of yellow or golden color can make some small pits on the surface of shungite. Thus, you will get in each case a unique texture of shungite bricks.
As follows from the Chinese teachings of Feng Shui, each geometric shape has its own energy, as well as the material from which it is made. For example the shape of the cube as a completeness, stability, static perfection, immaculate law. We have tried to combine these two energies in one product. For example, in a Pyramid, cube or sphere. You can choose a geometric shape according to your preference. Usually, pyramids and cubes are placed next to EMF sources, such as computer monitors or next to laptops. Since shungite stone has the ability to absorb electromagnetic waves.
