Expanded Geological Info

  • A variety of Quartz or Silicate (SiO2), its pink color and occasional asterism (as in Star Rose Quartz), incorrectly long thought to be caused by manganese, iron, or titanium, was later discovered, in the late 1990s, to be due to microscopic inclusions of pink borosilicate fibers with properties similar to dumortierite: this substance was named dididumortierite
  • Asterism or the star-like effect in some stones, is caused by a dense network of fine inclusions aligned with the gem’s crystal structure— when properly cut, it will reflect/refract light in the form of a 6-pointed star
  • True Rose Quartz does not fade in heat or light, however, the commonly mistaken “Pink Quartz” which gets its color from Aluminum and Phosphorus can rapidly fade when exposed to UV light

MOHS HARDNESS 3.0 (Soft)

 

Expanded Geological Info

  • Primary source of this stone is the Zazhoginsky mine in Karelia, Russia; typically contains 30% carbon, 57% silicates, and 13% other materials
  • Russian Tsar Peter the Great, ruled from 1682 to 1725, was well aware of the benefits of this stone and was known to use it for its purification and health benefits; used by the Russian army as well as in health spas and therapeutic treatments
  • A sacred spring near Lake Onega in Karelia was considered sacred and long revered for its “Living Waters” known for its healing properties; when investigated further, it was found the waters flowed forth from a bed of concentrated Shungite
  • Lake Onega, from prehistoric times, was found to be an important location where people flocked over the ages for its treasured waters— unusually pure; the lake bed in that region was found to be embedded with Shungite deposits 

 

There are 3 basic types of Shungite:

  • (Type III) Regular Shungite or Shungite Rock is typically classified as having between 30% - 50% carbon.  Grayish-Black in color, easily shaped and carved.
  • (Type II) Black Shungite - typically contains between 50% - 80% carbon.  A higher carbon content gives greater beneficial effects in purification, filtering, and protection.  Black in color, this most often found type of Shungite is frequently shaped and carved.  Petrovsky Shungite, a higher grade of Type II Shungite, named for Peter the Great, is typically 70% - 80% carbon.
  • (Type I) Elite Shungite/Silver Shungite also known as Noble Shungite - 90% or greater carbon content.  Less than 1% of all found Shungite falls into this category.  Very brittle and fragile, it is never shaped or carved and almost always used in its raw form.  The most prized of this variety is 98% or greater in carbon content and exhibits a silvery metallic luster on its surface.
