Shungite comes from Russia, even more specifically from the Republic of Karelia, and is known as the best radiation-resistant stone. It is a healing stone with a unique composition. It absorbs negative influences and electromagnetic radiation. Shungite has been used in medical treatments since the 18th century. Peter the Great was at the cradle of the first Russian health resort in Karelia, and there he used the water purifying effect of shungite, which he had personally already experienced. He also promoted its use in the production of purified water for the Russian army. The anti-bacterial properties of shungite have been confirmed by modern test methods.
Tumbled and cuddly stones are shiny, polished stones in different sizes and types. They are made by placing rough stones in a special drum machine together with polishing, grinding powder and water. The drum machine rotates the stones so that they roll over each other and sand the sharp and rough edges. This can take 4 to 6 weeks. Finally, the stones are polished to smooth, rounded and shiny stones of different sizes. The small tumblestones are most commonly used as ornamental stones. The larger ones are used as hugging stones.
