Shungite

$189.00

Shungite is said to be very protective and helps to diminish electro-magnetic fields from the world around us. Pyramids have this effect in a radius around them, depending on their size. Tiles are great for placing your electronics on at your bedside, or your desk. I keep a tile in my car under my seat to transmute any lower energies and I keep a pyramid in front of my TV as well as my bedside. I have shungite in pretty much every room I spend any time in!

Buddha statues are also available for pre-order! XL, 11.25" and L 9". (Please note these are not solid shungite. They are coated shapes with a solid tile base). If you order a Buddha as part of a larger order, I will charge you shipping separately when it arrives, unless you'd like to hold the whole order. 

Pre-orders will be subject to availability at my vendor. I will refund you if they are not available. I'll take pre-orders through at least Friday Oct 15. Thanks! 

Shungite is a rare black stone made of up to 99 percent carbon. It’s mainly found in Shunga, a village in Karelia, Russia. ⁠The stone has a unique composition. It contains fullerenes, or 3-D spherical molecules made of 60 carbon atoms. These molecules are hollow and sometimes called buckyballs.⁠

Along with fullerenes, shungite consists of nearly all the minerals on the periodic table.⁠

The origin of shungite is a mystery. Typically, materials made of carbon come from decayed organic substances like old forests. But the stone is thought to be at least 2 billion years old. This is before organic life existed on the planet!!!

The square tiles were supposed to be plain, but I grabbed them with the "Ōṁ" symbol and Buddha engravings by mistake.

I want to honor the lineage from which these symbols come. Ōṁ is the sound of a sacred spiritual symbol in Indian religions, mainly in Hinduism which you often hear in yoga classes.

Buddha is of Asian lineage and practiced mostly by those of Asian lineate. It originated in Nepal. I study Buddhism as part of my meditation practice. My teacher program is Insight Meditation and Midnfulness which comes from Buddhism's Insight/Vipassana meditation style.

The Buddha statues offer me a reminder of living life in my body, in this moment. Buddha also teaches me that in this life, there is suffering, I can make it worse, and I don't have to. So, it's constantly striving to not be attached to outcomes and to always reconnect to now.
