Shungite is a powerful purification and protection crystal. It improves mental clarity and clears the body of stored emotion and impurities. It has a strong earth connection and is a powerful grounding stone. In chakra work, it can clear and re-energise each of the chakras, one-by-one by working from the base up to the crown. Shungite has electricity conducting properties and these properties are known to help in the inhibiting of electromagnetic radiation, created by electronic devices such as laptops, microwaves, mobile phones, computers and wi-fi routers etc. Aids meditation, by helping to keep the mind clear.

Placing shungite near a computer, microwave and other electronic devices will not interfere with their operation but will block out some of their electromagnetic output.
