What rocks are similar to shungite?

However, which are very similar to real Shungite. After all, shungite is an amazing and at the same time very rare mineral.

But, there are many minerals that looks like a Shungite rock. Above all, in the global Internet is increasingly beginning to mention about mineral – “Hematite”. Firstly, this mineral is very similar in appearance. In addition, it also conducts electric current as Shungite.  Therefore, the conductivity test loses its relevance. As well as its status as the most correct and accurate way to verify the authenticity.

Hematite is described as an amazing helpful and magical mineral in some open sources. I have not been able to find any scientifically proven information about this or scientific research in this area. In other words, it’s just one of the types of iron, which is included in the General list – iron ore. This mineral is used in industry for example for smelting iron. Hematite is not rare rock. Because its deposits are all over the world. It makes it more accessible for make products that are provided as a genuine Shungite.

Elite shungite fake.

In addition, unscrupulous sellers have recently appeared who are trying to pass off natural asphaltene Gilsonite under the guise of elite shungite. At the same time, they came up with a story about a non-existent mineral, which consists of several words: “this specimen was found in Colombia.” Thus, they are trying to pass asphalt off as elite shungite.

After all, the glory of the unique mineral shungite attracts the attention of many scammers. But an informed buyer knows that only genuine elite shungite conducts electricity. Conversely, these fakes do not conduct electricity.
