Rare Natural Russian Stone

This Russian rock is one of the most hard-to-find and rare minerals on Earth. By the will of nature or other circumstances, this mineral was discovered only in one place on our planet. It is a small region of Karelia on the border with Finland in Russia.

There are two varieties of the Russian stone pendants. This is a classic (regular) and an elite (silver c60 carbon) pendants. The difference between the two types of products lies in the material of the type of the stone from which they are made.

Type 3: Regular or classic black stone

These pendants are made of classic black Russian stone. This black mineral has a diverse chemical composition the main element of which is the form of carbon (content of 30% and above) which is not found anywhere else in nature.

It is this black stone that has become the object of scientific worldwide research in the field of EMF and other amazing properties. Read our article Russian stone properties to learn more about it. Now the reserves of this mineral are close to zero, as the only Deposit has limited reserves, which are decreasing every year.

Features of classic type

The peculiarity of these pendants is that they can be made of almost any geometric shape. Please note each shape is obtained as a result of manual work. This is the process of carving a single pendant from a single piece of stone.

Also, it is not a pressed or stamped factory mold. On the contrary, each pendant is hand-carved from whole raw natural stones. The polished surface to reflect light and look more attractive. Often this surface is mistaken for paint, but it is not. Paint is used by scammers when counterfeiting these products. The fact is that such a paint can be electrically conductive, as a result it can deceive the buyer without tests.

Please note, that even the polished surface of black shungite pendants can leave marks on clothes or hands. Don’t worry, it’s the remnants of black natural dust that has settled on its surface.

We wash our shungite pendants thoroughly after the manufacturing process has been finished, but still sometimes happens. Simply rinse your pendant under warm water, but do not use any chemical agents or harsh materials. The fact that the polished surface of the products can be damaged or erased.

In addition, when you wear your pendant, the polished surface on it begins to wear off. After a while, the surface of your pendant becomes matte and loses its luster. But I got into this by a natural process as a result of the friction of the pendant on your skin or clothes.

How to check shungite pendant

If you are at home, then go to the window to get enough light. Turn the pendant so that the light begins to reflect from its surface. As a result, you should see the veins on the surface of this shungite pendant. These are veins of pyrite and Quartzite. These two minerals have a Golden and whitish color and are clearly distinguishable on the raw untreated surface of this black stone.

However, on a polished surface, they do not have such natural colors. But you can still see the veins.

Mineral quartz in the stone

The fact is that real black stone, from which we make all our pendants, belongs to the third type of the Russian rock. This means that it contains about 30% of the unique amorphous stone carbon. The remaining inclusions are silicon oxide and trace amounts of other chemical elements. Therefore, quartz in the black stone occupies an impressive part of the structure.

Look at these shungite pendants, you can see quartz stripes on them.The quartz mineral has white color and highly reflective. Remember, quartz can look like glass and shiny well. Therefore, inside the black rock inclusions of quartz will have the form of lighter bands.

Sometimes the quartz veins will look like dark bands than the black stone itself. It just depends on the angle of view and the angle of incidence of the light. Twist the pendant in the light and you will see the difference.

Mineral Pyrite

In addition to the quartz mineral, there may also be a pyrite mineral inside the stone. This mineral has a golden color that can reach orange. On the surface of shungite pendants and other products, pyrite is represented by veins, stripes, spots. Sometimes small pits can be found in these pyrite inclusions.

In fact, pyrite and quartz greatly adorn shungite pendants and give them a unique pattern. Therefore, all shungite pendants will have a unique pattern on their surface.

If your pendant is covered in paint, you probably won’t see any streaks on its surface. So as under layer by layer black paint this cannot be to see. In addition, if you buy shungite pendants in countries other than Russia, there is a huge risk of getting a fake. For example, a pendant of Hematite or Orgonite. Read about these forgeries in this article.

At the same time, if you bought a very black shungite pendant and don’t see traces of quartz or pyrite on it, then don’t get upset ahead of time. Indeed, in fact, there is a possibility that a real Karelian stone pendant will be almost completely black without marks. This is a rare occurrence, but it does happen. Therefore, if in doubt, then conduct a test for the conductivity of your pendant. A real shungite pendant will conduct electricity.

We make pendants from raw c60 black stone from the Zazhoginsky deposit, which has amazing properties. At the same time, in order to engrave later, we use the blackest rock, and it is very difficult to choose it among the work pieces. Next, choose the blackest pendants.

However, even on these black pendants there will still be some small translucent lines and veins from quartz and pyrite. However, they do not stand out on the type 3 stone very much.

After we have engraved the pendants, we also make a selection among them. And we remove those pendants on which the white quartz is very bright. Thus, we choose only high-quality engraved pendants. However, some very small dots are not defect.

Shungite pendant: conductivity measurement

Measurement of the specific electrical resistance of the engraved pendant

Real Russian black stone type 3 is a good conductor of electricity. At the same time, any Russian stone products conductor of electricity. This is black stone of the third type with an average carbon content of about 30%, from which all our black pendants are made. But elite silver stone of the first type with has a carbon content of up to 99%. At the same time, the electrical conductivity for the stone is 4762 Sim/m. And the specific resistance to electric current is the value 2,18 ∙ 10-4 Om∙m.

At the same time, the ability to conduct electricity well for stones and minerals is a very rare phenomenon. For example, everyone knows that metals conduct electricity very well, but Russian mineral is not a metal.The Russian stone conducts electricity so well that it is much closer to conductors than to semiconductors.

And besides, for example, black stones type 3 contains silicon oxide (in the form of quartz) up to 60%. But quartz does not conduct electricity at all. But the molecular and supramolecular structure of the rock and its chemical composition together give amazing effects. These include not only the ability of the c60 stone to conduct electric current, but also to absorb and reflect electromagnetic waves of high frequency. Scientists have discovered and investigated this unique ability of the Russian rock to protect against EMF radiation.

Measuring current resistance with a multimeter

At home, you can check the conductivity of the shungite pendant with a multimeter. Also use the light bulb test. To measure with a multimeter, you need to turn the knob to the position of measuring the resistance to electric current as shown in our photo. After all, the lower the resistance of a material to current, the more this material conducts electric current. The Russian mineral has a current resistance close to zero. Therefore, current flows freely through the stone.

Please note that when taking measurements, you cannot place the probe into a quartz viens in the black stone, since quartz does not conduct electricity.

Shungite Pendant: Elite

These pendants are made of the first type of the stone which can also be called as elite, silver, noble, etc. This mineral unlike its classical companion has a silvery surface and reflects light even without the need to Polish its surface. The fact is that this silvery mineral has a smooth and mirrored surface by nature. This was made possible by carbon, which is 98% of the total mass of this mineral. In contrast to the classical shungite pendants these pendants are not processed and have a natural shape. Such as they were found in nature.

This noble mineral is rarer than its classic black companion. The only Deposit is also only in Karelia, and it is completely exhausted. Now there are only grains in the form of veins, which are scattered along the shores of lake Onega and are extremely inaccessible.

This mineral has not been the subject of scientific research in the field of EMF protection. Therefore, to claim that this mineral has the abilities of a classic black stone is not appropriate. Shungite pendants made of type 1 silver stones are more expensive than classic ones. This is due to the fact that it is almost gone in nature.

As a result, this silvery mineral has become the object of counterfeits all over the world. Here is one example.

Shungite pendant emf protection

This black mineral has been subjected for many years to various world researches in the field of protection against negative fields and waves of different nature.

For example, these waves are able to emit all electrical devices that are associated with everyday life of modern man. To date, this rare black rock is recognized as the most effective material for protection against EMF and from 5G radiation. Note that the results of the studies are valid only for genuine pure Russian EMF protection stone. Orgonite, Hematite and other minerals are not suitable for this.


We also draw your attention to some black quantum pendants advertised by sellers as protection against EMF. In fact, these pendants not only do not protect against EMF radiation, but they themselves are a source of dangerous ionizing radiation. But in fact, these fakes give quite the opposite effect. Instead of protecting, they, on the contrary, are able to irradiate the one who wears them with real radioactive radiation.
