Shungite is a mineral/crystal consisting of 98 percent carbon. It was first discovered in a deposit near Shunga Village Russia which is where its name originated.
It is a mineral based stone similar to coal. However is does contain a molecule called a Fullerenes. Which is not found in other stones, and can only be created in a vacuum in a lab. Very similar to the type of vacuum that exists in outer space.
This mineral is only found in the Republic of Karella of Russia.
The field where they are mined is estimated to be two to four billion years old.
Test to see if it's real Shungite:
If you unscrew the top part of a flashlight where you put your batteries in and hold a piece of Shungite on the top of the battery it will make the light go on in your flashlight. If it doesn't then you know its not real Shungite.
