Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION: What is the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 Shungite? The difference is purity. Type 1 is ~97% Fullerene Content. Type 2 is ~75% Fullerene Content. Type 1 is the most powerful naturally-occuring fullerene source found anywhere on earth. But it is too fragile to be manufactured into shapes. Type 2 is far more durable, and can be manufactured into shapes. It is completely conductive to electrical current and is a very powerful spin generator. It is highly recommended for wearing as it is on your skin 24/7 (should be worn as much as possible).

QUESTIONIs Shungite Radioactive? No. To see my test on a geiger counter, click here. Also, if you do a google search on Shungite Radioactivity, you will only turn up search results that show that Shungite is the only substance on earth medically proven to reverse biological damage from harmful mobile phone radiation. Click here to see the study.

QUESTION: Can you please tell us where is it best to attach the Shungite plates? to laptop and cell phone?  On your cellphone - As you see, this will be over the case cover, and will naturally create a handle for your fingertips to touch. Having the plates touch your fingertips whenever you are using the phone is what makes it so effective. You should also have bracelets on the phone 'holding wrist if possible. Having said that - with phones having so much radiation - please put it in airplane mode whenever you are not looking at the screen. On your laptop - if you have access to a tri-field EMF meter, run it around the bottom of your laptop to find exactly where the highest reading occurs. If you don't, see if you can borrow one. I know for mac laptops, it's highest right over the motherboard. I'll try to test a number of laptops and tape it for YouTube. Definitely never let that laptop sit on your lap while in use. Live electronics near you are hazardous. When they touch you, they're very dangerous. For a laptop you should have at least three sets of plates (one under each wrist on top) two strategically located beneath. For tablets two sets (of two) and for mobile phones, one set, arranged vertically, as shown.

QUESTION:  Since we have them on our teenage daughters as well. How susceptible are the shungites to breaking if dropped? Elite Type 1 Shungite is more brittle than glass. Type 2 is more durable. So don't wear Type 1's when doing anything active - I guarantee it will break. 

QUESTION: Does the shungite have to be worn on the outside of your clothes or will it work underneath clothes, just as well? I did a static discharge test by rubbing my feet on my carpet and touching a mylar foil drape I have hanging over my canopy bed. Without holding the Shungite, I got quite a 'zap' of discharge - releasing my positive ions into the grounding mylar sheet. However by holding the Shungite in my hand, there was no shock. Holding the shungite in a cloth in my hand there was a small shock, teaching me that direct contact is more grounding. As to Shungite's ability to ward off incoming counter-spin from synthetics, it really doesn't matter where on your body it's worn. If you drop a pebble in a still pond in front of you, does it matter if it fell off your shoulder, or dropped out of your mouth? You still send out a counteracting ripple to attenuate the incoming harmful vibrational ripple of an opposite-spinning synthetic source. So the short answer is - best on your skin, but still great over a layer of clothing

QUESTION: Can you wear it while showering or should you take it off?

 I wear mine all the time. I feel naked without them on. Here's an interesting thing that I journaled. One time while soaking in the tub, I was meditating into hemi-sync, and the hexagon pendant started to float on the surface of the water.  I have heard a crystal store owner say that shungite must be washed often. This is silly. When you receive Shungite, you'll notice a black silt that comes off in your hands - those are fullerenes. Similar to pencil lead (graphite is also carbon) the stuff is great for you - Shungite powder is used in EMF blocking paint, and even fed to laboratory rats in studies which resulted in a 93% longer lifespan (click here). Shungite (especially deep mine) has sat deep in the earth for thousands of years, and the rock is billions of years old. It doesn't need to be washed or "recharged under a full moon". I know of one local crystal store owner who sells specialized orange rocks to "clean" shungite! - and who said that Shungite wears out after two years and needs to be replaced. That piece of Shungite you are holding is over two billions of years old. It's not going to lose its charge.

QUESTION: To energize and purify a litre of water, what shungite is recommended?

I created a custom bottle with exactly the correct amount of Shungite to simplify things. You can see it here:

QUESTION: To Energize and purify a normal size of tub for a bath, how many elites does it take to be ready?

I have a cereal-bowl size of elites that I keep in the tub continuously. That's right - when I am treating with Shungite, I do not drain the tub after each use. It's not for me to bathe in when I immerse in Shungite (no soaps, shampoos, etc). It's for soaking. The longer you leave Shungite in, the longer it has to outlast/overpower the synthetic spin in the water's contaminates. When working with water, you don't need the largest rocks, smaller ones will do (should be over 10g or they'll wind up falling down the drain - I know this by experience!). Remember also that smaller stones have more surface area exposed to the water. Large stones work fine of course, as the entirety of an elite stone is homogenous (which is why it reacts so quickly to an electrical current test - showing full conductivity). 

I've had great success leaving the tub filled overnight. Bring in a hot fan into your bathroom (at the greatest distance from the tub for safety and to reduce EF exposure) and heat the room up - as the water will be room temperature.

QUESTION: Do you believe that Shungite water can cure a serious toenail fungal infection Most of the research that has been published tout the anti-viral properties of Shungite, not the anti-bacterial properties. So I can't answer that one with any certainty. Bacteria occur naturally on earth, having an overrun of bacteria (infection) is more an affliction of the body's inability to keep the population in check. I would be careful of expecting shungite to offer symptomatic relief. Its greatest power is in harmonizing the spin of natural vibrational energy. Again, anything synthetic (man-made) such as microwave radiation, alternating current electricity, synthesized plastics, pharmaceuticals - anything man-made spins opposite of nature an attenuates your own natural electrical attachment to all that surrounds you. The best way to cure afflictions such as acute infections would be to touch large elites to your chakra points as a continuous practice, preferably with barefeet on the grass, and breathe slowly into the lower diaphragm while doing so. Because your chakra points (or Dantians, as known in chinese medicine) are your body's lowest resistance points - think of them as USB ports to connect healing peripherals (horrible analogy, but easy to understand). "Plugging" an elite shungite to a low-resistance chakra point helps to reverse the invasive spin that is making your electrical vibrance polluted and weak.

QUESTION: How do you (Gary) use Shungite?

I have had years of fascination with crystals and especially Shungite. I experiment with it on everything - this is why I know things like, "don't just wedge it against your router".

There are two aspects of effective Shungite use: 1) proximity to your body and 2) amount of time you are exposed to it. This is why I am such a fan of wearable Shungite. I wear a Pendant of Elite Type 1 Noble Shungite as a necklace. This pure 99% Fullerene stone is placed between my throat chakra and my solar plexus naturally by the length of the cord. (I'll answer what a 'chakra' is in the next question). I wear a rectangular-tile bracelet on each wrist. And I carry a large (flat as I can find) Elite Shungite Stone in each pocket. When meditating, I place one large Elite on my third-eye chakra (between the eyes to unwind the pineal gland) and one on the throat, or if I'm feeling attacked by the anxiety of others, over my heart or below my navel.

I bathe in Shungite (I have a lot of elite stones, it's the most valuable thing on earth one can purchase). I fill the tub and let my many stones neutralize the water for an hour or two. The water can get cool in the tub, but it's refreshing.

I have Elite Shungite stones in my plant watering jug. I have a lot of plants, and keep them away from electronic devices. I also use jug to fill the pet's water bowls.

I put it in my glass water containers, about 10g per 16oz of water. I usually have an excess of stones in water containers, but they are amazing. The water tastes more "slippery". When you pour cold water over an elite shungite stone in a glass, you may notice bubbles surrounding the stone. That's nitrogen being released from the water, normally trapped by osmotic pressure. 

QUESTION: Should I place Shungite near my WIFI Router?

ANSWER: No. If you have a Tri-field EMF/RF/EF meter, walk around your house and you will be shocked to see how many sources of radiation exposure exist, and the high levels they give off. Things you never thought would be so toxic, like Hues "Smart" bulbs, Alexa, Sonos Speakers, "Nest" thermostat controllers, your WIFI enabled printer... all of these are sources of high levels of radiation emitting 24/7 giving you extended exposure. Of course, the best thing to do would be to turn off all of these items (or get rid of the ones you don't use) because an electrified house electrifies you.

This is why putting a big pyramid next to a router would be like plugging only one hole in a leaky dam. The best thing is to de-electrify you. Having Shungite on your skin has been proven to counter-spin harmful synthetic energy - which is so destructive to the natural order of living things, and the Universe that we're a part of. The Universe spins in a positive direction, the same direction as the benzene ring of the Carbon atom. When 60 carbon atoms are bound into a configuration of a soccer ball (the "fullerene" molecule) the trapped bond affinity of all of these carbon atoms generate a powerful positive spin, neutralizing all synthetic influences, such as EMFs, toxins, stress.

QUESTION: What Is with the Black Dust?

ANSWER: Fullerenes. That is black graphite dust, "Fullerenes" and it's completely safe (though it looks filthy). In fact, black shungite powder in paint; is used to preserve bee hives (click here) and is used to lengthen the lifespans of laboratory mice. (click here)

QUESTION: What do you mean by "Synthetics"?

ANSWER: Anything made by man is Synthetic. Synthetic substances all have the disruptive quality of having a quantum counter-spin. This is why they are so damaging to health. The earth has had millions of years perfecting a safe environment for all living things, but with the advent of synthetics (rubber-soled shoes, electricity, microwaves, alternating current electricity) we are bombarded by synthetic, man-made creations that have the annoying quality of counter-spin. This is why Shungite is purifying. It's like noise-reduction headphones, which counteracts the noise by sending back an echo of the noise in the opposite phase, thereby cancelling the noise. Shungite sends out quantum vibrational energy that is out-of-phase with synthetics, neutralizing their influence. As you'll see in my "Proof" section where I share published scientific articles, Shungite has been proven to be anti-viral (even dissolving the protein capsule of the AIDS virus), extending the lifespan of laboratory mice by 93%, and especially, reversing the offensive counter-spin of Electrical Radiation.

QUESTION: What are Chakras? How do crystals work on Chakras?

ANSWER: Chakras are points on the body with low electrical resistance, and high conductivity. That's really it. There's nothing mysterious to them. They're like where you would plug in your USB cord to connect a hard drive. Our bodies are entirely electricity. Everything our body does is electrical - muscle stimulation, the pacemaker in our heart, brain activity, it's all electricity. Chakras are like the data ports. They are also areas which show if you are vibrating out of sync. Each chakra (these are also called "Dantians" in Chinese Medicine) has a unique frequency, like a guitar string that is in tune. For example, the crown chakra, when vibrating in the proper frequency, vibrates at 768hz. When you are bombarded by lower-vibrational energy (like watching too much CNN News), your vibrational energy can start to go out of tune, vibrating lower. Crystals which oscillate at the same or multiples of the same frequency, or harmonious in thirds and fifths above, when placed directly on the chakra, will create a situation called, "frequency following response" or FFR. This means that your chakra will "tune up" to resonate with the surrounding frequency. It is irritating to the body to be out of tune, like hearing a guitar out of tune. This is why Chakra healing works, on a quantum level.

With Shungite, it will not create an FFR situation with your chakras, but what it will do is neutralize the counter-spin. It's actually preventative. By eliminating all that attenuates, stops, or reverses positive natural spin (by synthetics), Shungite stops negative spin influences, allowing the chakra's frequency on its own to return to its natural state. This is why large Elite 1 rocks are so valuable (and why they sell out instantly on my store when I have them available). They are amazing for restoring harmony to your electrical system, which has been fogged by synthetic influences.

QUESTION: I have the same multimeter as you, but I am not able to duplicate the results in your conductivity tests. Am I doing something wrong?

The way to test if your meter is correctly working, touch the two probes together while in Resistance Mode. I use a very inexpensive $20 meter. It's older, and super not fancy. In the following video, I use a more updated meter (that cost more) and could not get it to properly read, as when I touch the probes together, there should be a value of 0.00 fior zero resistance. If you're having issues, definitely watch this video!

Love the shungite

since I felt the rock on my hands I felt a burst of energy and a tingling on the hands, it’s been a week since I had it and from what ive experienced while connecting with the shungite stone is that when energetically I feel stuck on a chakra and put the stone, it definitely helps and supports me on releasing and flow easier by working together.. i feel like it’s a great companion… also there are moments where i feel it helps to center myself… I bought it for the energetic sense I felt when I saw it but of course there also physical benefits I’ll be seeing and feeling

let’s see what more things it brings to my life

Thanks 🙏

Elite Nobility

I really like my pendent. It was not damaged nor was it different than the description video. Only issue I've noticed is, when I wear it, it has sharp edges. It's somewhat uncomfortable to have directly on my skin. I noticed the stress level go way down and focus increased when wearing it. I thank you and yours for the purchase and the quality. Theres a lot of scammers out there and you my friend are not one of them.

Thank u again and,

God speed 🙏 🙌

Easy to wear. Verified.

After doing some research, listening to friends, and listening to Gary on YouTube, I was convinced that using and wearing real shungite would help to protect me. My cell phone is ON me almost all the time - usually around my neck, and I am also on computer for many hours a day. I ended up getting pendant, a piece for my cell phone, pieces for my lap top, and a bracelet. Fast shipment. I put everything in place the day they arrived. I wear the bracelet 24/7. The pendant is always on except when sleeping. I appreciate that the pendant length is easily adjustable, and like how it lays flat against my skin. Great info from Gary's online posts, and great buying experience. High recommend.


Attractive. Easy to wear. Comfortable.

Not only beautiful but the real thing!

True to all its description. Very satisfied with my purchase. Compared to other online stores that offer Shungite this is the real deal. This man is telling the truth, the Shungite he sells is so real.


This is the real thing. Very satisfied.

Beautiful necklace

I just love the look of the beautiful necklace I received recently and was surprised at how lightweight it is despite the size that I purchased. Definitely recommend this site as reliable!

Looks and Feels Great!

The bracelet is very lightweight and looks very unique. Feels great to wear.


I couldn't be more pleased with my new Shungite water generator. I love the taste and experience of the water it generates. I've been drinking it plain and using it for tea and coffee, both of which are much better than if I made them using water from any other purification method.

These are great and for change they work. Thank you for a great product.

Exceptional Quality - Exceptional Value

I have searched the internet for a high quality Shungite Water Generator Bottle, and this product is truly the best anywhere. Not only is the quality of the water bottle exceptional, but most importantly the Shungite is prestine! I have order from VERIFIED SHUNGITE in the past and will remain a loyal customer...

worth the wait

Love the earrings!!! I was getting worried but then saw they came from Canada. Their post is slow. Thank you!!!

Love It, real thing

I love this vendor, I've bought two pendant necklaces from them and I am beyond happy with it. I really do feel more calmness as I live in the middle of the city it helps keep my heart feeling easy and I think it also helps me sleep easier. All just an opinion. No other gem or mineral I've bought has given me such obvious feelings of calmness.

I'm a sensitive with EMF intolerance

I've purchased the beanies, shunghite necklace and shunghite for my phone as well as my partner's phone. I recently purchased the latest and greatest smartphone, and holy **** is it powerful with EMF radiation energy. I'm very happy to report that the shunghite has helped substantially. I still need to wear the beanies, but I bought them because I trust the seller's research and I don't have the headaches I used to. Keep in mind, I've never had headaches before owning this new smartphone. It goes to show, even if you can't see it, it doesn't mean it's not there. EMFs wreak havoc with my chi. I'm glad to have found this website before getting ripped off by others claiming their product worked, when it truly didnt. Authentic shunghite is backed by scientific research that it actually works. Fong's youtube videos saved me money and I have products that have helped. Thank you!!!


I feel and felt the difference by the 2nd day....
Everything that came with anxiety& fears disappeared and I'm feeling good,like my old self again before all of the deaths in my family that had me in a very dark space and place filled with false evidence appearing real (FEAR).
I would definitely recommend this necklace and any Shungite product from Verified Shungite to friends and family.

Bought this for my gf to make sure that emf is being blocked from her body. Well crafter and high quality.

Highest quality, don’t get fooled for fake crystals and gems. Make sure you are getting what you paid for and order from Russian Shungite.

Trusted Shungite Source (Meter Testing on Video) & Fast Shipping

As a previous customer of Gary Fong's other quality products, there was already built-in trust for Gary as a reputable and credible source. New to Shungite, it gave me peace of mind and confidence that Gary is on camera speaking to quality shungite vs fake shungite and how to tell the difference, and meter testing each and every product he carries in his store. I'm 3-hours drive time from his city, and so Canada Post ship time of 2-3 business days works well for me.

As I'm concerned for the health of my wife, 2 adult children and their spouses with respect to EMF emissions, I purchased 6 plates (along with a shungite bracelet for myself) in my first order, and all of us have it installed on our mobile phone cases.

My wife and I enjoyed breakfast at a local restaurant last week, and she felt especially congested a few minutes into being seated. I pointed the wife router installed directly on the ceiling about 6 feet above her as a potential cause. Just to cover all bases, I shared my shungite bracelet with her to wear to see if it will help. When our food arrived, she shared that she felt less congested than before, and that gave me extra confidence about the additional health benefits of shungite. Needless to say, she's been wearing my shungite bracelet for a week, and I bought her a women's beaded bracelet this evening so I can get my own bracelet back, ha!

With "buying local" in mind, and Gary's high level of customer service with personally responding to my questions over chat, I have extreme confidence in Gary's continued support of his customers and the legitimacy of his product line, and will continue to purchase more products from Thanks, Gary! Appreciate what you're bringing to market and your personalized customer support!

Still waiting

Unfortunaly I have not received it yet, got an updated that says March 8 I'll be waiting


Very happy with my Shungite cellphone plate, great size and weight for my cellphone. Adheres nicely with the 3m sticker. Even came with registration papers for authenticity. So happy to add to my shungite collection all from Verified Shungite. Highly recommend, excellent quality and service.

My Shungite Pendant

I really, do not know yet. I just, got it today.

Lovin my Shungite necklace!!

I contemplated buying a shungite necklace for over 2 years...I am electro sensitive and really needed some kind of real protection. I finally bit the bullet and ordered...My necklace arrived quickly and I started wearing it immediately. I can honestly say..It works for me..I wish i hadnt waited but I was prevented due to lack of money. I was reluctant due to the fakes getting around (the poor man always pays twice). Just do it...I hope you are helped as much as i was.
