  1. Color: Shungite typically ranges from black to a metallic gray color. It can sometimes exhibit a silver or shiny appearance due to its high carbon content.

  2. Hardness: Shungite's hardness varies depending on its composition. On the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, it typically ranges from 3.5 to 4. However, some varieties of shungite may be harder due to the presence of other minerals.

  3. Clarity: Shungite is usually opaque, meaning that light does not pass through it. However, some specimens may exhibit slight translucency.

  4. Luster: Shungite has a dull to semi-metallic luster. It can appear matte or have a slight sheen depending on its surface finish and composition.

  5. Density: Shungite has a relatively high density compared to many other minerals. Its density can range from approximately 2.0 to 2.4 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³).

  6. Metaphysical Properties: Shungite is believed to have purifying properties, both physically and energetically. It is often used in water purification due to its purported ability to absorb harmful substances and impurities. Many people use shungite for protection against electromagnetic radiation (EMF) emitted by electronic devices such as smartphones, computers, and Wi-Fi routers. It is thought to act as a shield against these potentially harmful energies.
