Shungite is a rare Precambrian carbonaceous rock of organic origin which has been found in its form only in Russia, The Republic of Karelia. It bears the name of a small village called Shunga where it was first discovered. Scientists claim that the stone is about 2 billion years old and it was forming before life existed on Earth. Today it is often referred to as a healing mineral, the mineral or stone of life due to its famous curative and antibacterial qualities.
There are three types of shungite stones. Type III is called regular shungite. It contains 30-50% of carbon. It has a denser structure and black vivid color. It can be easily polished and shaped.
