Shungite – Why I Love It
Shungite is one of those things that I really like.
There is some controversy around this, so I want to explain my stance.
I totally object to people buying “bibs and bobs” to be “safe” from EMF. Most of those are dreadful marketing gimmicks that do little more than give you a false sense of security, thus causing you to increase your exposure.
What I advocate is that you reduce your exposure to EMF.
Plain and simple.
From here, an add-on (shungite) is acceptable to help reduce the effects of EMF that is out of your control.
I’ll share an example to help clarify.
You’ve cleaned up your home and workplace. Your smart meter has been shielded, you have no wi-fi, you keep cables away from your bed… There really is very little in it that would contribute to “electrosmog.”
However, when you go out into the world to get groceries, for instance, you will be inadvertently exposed to EMF. In this case, carrying some shungite with you can be helpful.
You may also choose to keep some in the meter box, as long as you remember to “erase” it regularly.
What Is It?
Shungite pieces are in their natural form – they have not been tumbled. Each piece is irregularly shaped and have natural variances and lines within them. They are natural and therefore “imperfect.”
Pieces vary in weight and shape.
- “20g” = 20-29g
- “30g” = 30-39g
- “40g” = 40-49g
- “50g” = 50-59g
Due to their carbon content, they are “messy” to handle – a bit like drawing with charcoal, they make your hands black (NOTE it is easy to wash this off).
I supply these in a colourful drawstring bag.
This is Russian Shungite.
Cyril W Smith, author of Electromagnetic Man, did some research into its efficacy and concluded that
Shungite can block bio-effects of computers, mobiles and other electronic devices. It should also block the effects of fields associated with “Smart Meters” particularly if the Shungite is immersed in water (and sealed in plastic for safety). An 8 gm piece of Shungite in air had a coherence length of 45 cm but, if immersed in water this extended to ~18 metres!
A living system is a system constantly adapting to its environment. This results in diminishing returns for any therapy frequency. Users may think they are being protected all the time and against all electromagnetic fields thereby getting a false sense of security and encouraging overuse/abuse. Of particular concern are the body field frequencies of a person using a device while stressed. These could become imprinted in the Shungite and subsequently trigger those stresses. Shungite will take up an imprint of an environmental frequency either by succussion or by proximity. [If it] had been lying on a WiFi router for a long while had acquired an imprint of 2.45 GHz. Shungite protection should be erased at regular intervals. This can be done by briefly placing the Shungite in a closed steel box to remove the stabilising geomagnetic field.

- No longer am I sensitive enough to personally feel a difference.
- This is not something that I can measure with my professional EMF equipment.
- I NEVER advocate using something like this INSTEAD OF reducing exposure – these are “add-ons.” I am stocking these for those who are sensitive who have done everything within her/his control to reduce their EMF exposure, yet are still experiencing symptoms and/or for those going into environments (short term) where they cannot control their EMF exposure.

How to Use Shungite
According to the research done by Smith, it is best to immerse your piece of Shungite in water.
It can be placed in your meter box, or within your home.
I do not recommend keeping it on you all the time. However, if you are out and about, then it is very useful to carry, for short periods.
Caring for Your Shungite
Smith recommends regularly placing it into a steel box to erase what it has picked up.
