This 108-bead Shungite mala embodies the energies of the 1st Chakra, VITALITY, to remind you of your intention to be healthy and live in balance. It also symbolizes your 5th Chakra, EXPRESSION, & 6th Chakra, INSIGHT, for strengthening your creativity and the ability to see the world as it truly is.
In its unprocessed state Shungite has a matte surface. On the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness it is between 3 & 4, making it quite a soft material. Shungite beads are polished to a light shine, with wear they tend to take on a matte appearance. This change does not affect its beneficial energetic properties on the body or the longevity of the beads.
We recommend that you remove your Shungite jewelry before showering, bathing or swimming – doing so will help extend the bead’s gloss.
