100% Authentic Shungite Pendant
.925 Sterling Silver Wire Twist Bail
Shungite is a beautiful mineral from Russia, specifically the Shunga Village in the Karelia area. It is 98% carbon weight. It was used by Peter the Great and has many traditional folk uses in Russia. At one point in history it was used by the Russian Army.
We test each of our Shungite Pendant specimens with Digital Multimeters to insure that they pass a resistance and continuity test. This ensure the authenticity of the Shungite. Fake Shungite will never pass these tests.
This specimen is unpolished and it is completely normal, and further confirms authenticity, for it to leave black smudge marks on your hands when handling. Unpolished Shungite that does not leave black smudges when handling is more than likely not authentic.
