This recent find out of Colombia is one of the few known sources of shungite globally. Named after the town of Shunga in Karelia, Russia where it was originally discovered, shungite is a long celebrated stone. While there are some geological formative variations, the resulting mineraloid shungite stones from various locales are almost identical. Noted for their high levels of pure carbon, this premium grade of shungite is a cut above the regular commercial grade of shaped Russian material on the market.

Elite Shungite is metallic in appearance, with distinctive conchoidal fractures, and is conductive (you can control your smart phone touch screen using a piece). Where this new Colombian shungite varies from the Russian is the fluctuating vs static electrical resistance. Tests are still being undertaken to better understand this material and explain fully the origin and properties. For now, we’re thrilled to bring you this remarkable new find so you too can experience what makes elite shungite such an exciting discovery.
