Certified Elite Shungite - AAA Grade
It is a term we use to illustrate the quality of the Elite Shungite we supply.
We use this Grading to draw attention to the prevalance of cheaper, sometimes fake and low quality Elite Shungite available in the marketplace.
Why Triple A Grade?
The First A is awarded for Authenticty. I check to see if the material exhibits the unique characteristics of Authentic Elite Shungite in that it allows the free flow of electricity
The Second A is awarded for its stability. Elite Shungite is not the same as regular Shungite. Its structure is far more brittle and pieces can be susceptible to splintering and breaking. There's nothing wrong with it, its just the way it is formed and actually is an indicator of the high carbon/fullerene content displayed by Elite Shungite. However, in our experience a beautiful 80 gram piece can rapidly become several small pieces and tiny splinters if the piece shows signs of instability on receipt. We handle it fumble with it inspect by eye and make a determination based on whether pieces easily fragment and whether potential cracks are weak.
The third and final A is awarded for Aesthetic. We look at the shine of the stone and whether it displays a silvery lustre. We look for the presence of iron oxide (rust) reddish brown staining and streaks. Iron oxide forms naturally with Elite Shungite it is harmless to humans in small quantities and can be found in many food items but frankly does not look very nice at all. In our opinion the presence of iron oxide can indicate that the piece is more brittle and also detracts from the beautiful silver lustre High Quality Authentic Elite Shungite displays.
