How to care for your Shungite:
This stone is extremely fragile and prone to cracking.
Use nothing abrasive as stone will scratch.
Physical surface damage to the stone will not affect its protective qualities as it is the substance, itself, that gives the stone its properties.
Do not expose to liquids, oils, solvents, or salts— freshwater only is okay.
Due to high carbon content, may stain things black— handle with care.
Shungite is a rapid absorber of negative energy and pollutants— cleanse frequently and place in the sun to recharge it.
*Shungite is very ancient charcoal - wear with care as may stain light-colored clothing.
Stones are natural and may differ slightly in appearance from shown example.
