Metaphysical Properties of This Product
Shungite: Shungite is comprised almost entirely of carbon and is estimated to be 2 billion years old. This stone is currently found only in Russia.
Generally, Shungite is known for three main functions. First, it is a stone for detoxifying and purifying (the physical body, the emotions, the energetic body, and one’s environment). Shungite is also commonly used to cleanse drinking water and then infuse it with the stone’s beneficial properties.
Second, Shungite provides protection from harmful frequencies (especially electromagnetic frequencies [EMF], WiFi, cell phones, electrical towers, geoengineering frequencies, and geomagnetic pollution). It is therefore excellent for empaths, sensitive children, animals, energy healers, lightworkers, and anyone living or working in an urban center.
And third, Shungite is called “the miracle stone” as it seems to cure and heal many ailments. Possibly one explanation is that this stone clears “the body of dysfunctional patterns [that manifest] as disease, emotional difficulties or various types of negativity.”*
Importantly, according to Robert Simmons, Shungite affects the body on its molecular level. Specifically, this stone “works to cleanse and align the particles of the body so that they are open to rapid conjoining with the Light” and the Light Body.* As he explains, when properly aligned, the molecules of the physical body form the skeleton “around which the Light Body can coalesce.”* Yet any “contradictions, diseases and disharmonies within us” create a disharmonious skeleton that blocks the Light Body from forming.* “The highest purpose of Shungite is to facilitate this process.”*
The cellular alignment facilitated by Shungite further gives one an energy field that helps to protect them from negativity.*
Mohs hardness: 3.5-4.
Group: Amorphous graphite (carbon), crystalline silicate, other.
Hematite: Hematite is well known for two characteristics: its ability to ground and its ability to protect.
The grounding energies of this stone make it an excellent choice for the perpetually un-grounded or scattered person, for anyone who is moving or traveling, and during meditation. These energies can also help to calm agitation and anxiety.
Coupled with this, Hematite offers protection from negative energies, including electromagnetic frequencies. It is therefore useful to have throughout the home, office, or car.
Metaphysically, Hematite helps you to stop repeating mistakes, learn from them, and be stronger for it. Indeed, strength—particularly the masculine form of that energy—is one energy that it offers. According to Judy Hall, Hematite also “brings the mind’s attention to basic survival needs.” Hall explains that it also facilitates better concentration, focus, original thinking, and the ability to solve problems.
Mohs hardness: 5.5-6.5.
Group: Iron oxide.
“Hematite,” Magnetized (manmade): Natural Hematite is not magnetic. These beads are therefore a mixture of Hematite and small amounts of other minerals that enable the Hematite to hold a strong and permanent magnetic charge. The reason for doing this is because magnets can be powerful healing tools: They have been used in various cultures for millennia as ways to manipulate and re-balance the energies in the body. Magnetized “Hematite” therefore combines Hematite’s properties with the energy-manipulating abilities of magnets. More information about using magnets for health is here.
These beads contain magnets. They should not come into contact with a pacemaker.
Quartz, Smoky: Smoky Quartz is beloved for its ability to both ground a person’s energy as well as to protect their energy against negative influences or negative emotions. Anyone seeking to anchor into their physical body more of the higher frequencies would do well with this stone. Notably, Smoky Quartz is associated with the base of the body: hips; legs; and feet.
It also helps with fear, depression, and letting go of what no longer serves. It may clear the mind and alleviate stress.
Mohs hardness: 7.
Quartz (Clear): Clear Quartz is best known for two characteristics: it is an amplifier; and it can be programmed. The former means that this stone will amplify the energies and characteristics of whatever is near it–be it another stone or a feeling. This characteristic is often used by healers to magnify the energies that they channel into a patient.
The latter means that intentions and energies can be set into the stone, and it will hold these programs very well. (Because Clear Quartz is programmed so easily, when you obtain one of these stones, it is important to clear all prior programming that may be in it–either accidentally or deliberately–unless you are aware of the programming and give permission for it. Put The Light Here clears all of our stones prior to using them in our products.) Of all stones, Clear Quartz is essentially the pure and empty vessel, the blank slate, awaiting instructions.
Additionally, this stone can clear blocks in the body, intensify psychic and spiritual experiences, and unlock memories.
Mohs hardness: 7.
