Do you spend a great deal of time working on your laptop, computer, or smartphone? These days we use a wide range of electronic devices and appliances that can actually drain us mentally and physically.
This is why investing in EMF protection crystals can prove very beneficial to use in a number of ways. But how do you decide which of these items is the best for you to buy?
Along with carrying out a review of one such EMF protection crystals we also provide a brief guide that looks at why EMFs are considered to be harmful and how EMF protection crystals can help.
Why Are EMFs Considered to be Harmful?
These days we are constantly being bombarded by EMF’s of which there are two kinds, low-level and high-level.
High-level EMF’s are the most extreme type and are the kind that are produced by the sun or that can be emitted by complex medical devices such as x-ray machines.
As for low-level EMF’s, these we are constantly bombarded with as they are the type emitted by power lines and various electrical devices in our homes and offices.
If we are frequently exposed to such it can cause a variety of issues from fatigue, low libido, anxiety or depression, to headaches, problems with sleeping, or memory changes. It can also lead to health problems.
In many cases we do not realize it is the electronic devices and appliances in our homes that may be causing these problems. So of course we continue to use them because they make our lives a lot easier to lead.
How Can EMF Protection Crystals Help?
For a long time crystals have been used to provide a protective force against evil. But they can also now provide a way to protect against the harm that EMF’s can do to us and which we are being attacked by on a daily basis.
However, it is vital to note that not every gemstone you come across has the necessary properties to protect you against EMF’s. But there are some, especially those that contain a large amount of iron in them, that will effectively block any interference caused by EMFs to your mind, body, and soul.
Don’t just choose crystals that come with a high iron content, also choose ones with heightened purification properties. These are the ones that will not only connect but align with your body’s chakras and provide the necessary energy that helps to improve your Feng Sui.
They also have the ability to be able to absorb the toxic properties in the air that are released by the EMF’s emitted from electronic devices, thus reducing the risk of them coming into contact with you.
Which EMF Protection Crystals Should You Buy?
As you will see above not all crystals contain the right properties to help block EMFs effectively. However, the crystal we discuss below is the perfect one to consider buying to provide you with the right level of EMF protection that you need.
Shungite is mineraloid, meaning that no distinct crystalline lattices form within the mineral. It was first described as “shungite” in 1879 and different grades are classified by their luster (from bright to dull) and carbon content.
Smaller deposits of shungite have also been found near Vozhmezero, Russia, in Austria, India, the Congo, and Kazakhstan. They are typically found above sedimentary mineral deposits which formed from evaporation of freshwater and are interspersed with alkaline volcanic deposits.
Deposits are typically around 2 billion years old and found among layers of metamorphic rock (as a mix of both sedimentary and igneous meta-layers).
Shungite is rated by three grades used commercially with differing amounts of carbon, silver, and carbon fullerines: Type I (Elite; 98% carbon with traces of silver), Type II (Petrovsky; 50-70% carbon), and Type III (Black; 30-50% carbon).
Historically, shungite was used in Russian folk medicine and was thought to have healing properties. Peter I (Peter the Great) ordered the construction of a health spa in Karelia to use the water-purifying properties of shungite as a health restorative. It is chronicled that he often made use of the spa.
Peter also used shungite for water purification for the Russian military and even issued shungite to soldiers to carry on campaign. Regarding water purification, shungite has demonstrated antibacterial properties for water purification (see Volfson et al. 2012 “Medical Geology in Russia and NIS” In: Medical Geology: A Regional Synthesis [Selinus O, Finkelman RB, Centeno JA, eds.] Springer).
Who’s It For?
The pyramid is intended to be an ornamental and functional product for those who are concerned about household EMF emissions and who would also like an interesting conversation piece. You will likely read many claims about shungite, and some are true.
The mineral contains some interesting physiochemical properties and has also been demonstrated to prevent solar dermatitis in experimental animals. These effects required the dermal application of powderized shungite to hairless mice exposed to ultraviolet B radiation (Sajo et al.  Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of shungite against untraviolet B irradiation-induced skin damage in hairless mice. Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity 2017:7340143).
The area of effect for a stone of this size under ideal conditions is stated to be 10 meters (a bit less than 33 feet). The mode of action claims to be through electromagnetic transformation.
More specifically, the mineral does not block EMF, but Heka alleges that the mineral transforms EMF to less harmful, more biologically-compatible waveforms. This claim is very similar to EMF stickers intended to mitigate harmful EMF emissions from cell phones.
Further, the hewn shape of the mineral is said to gather energy from the surrounding environment and balance local energies, presumably in a fung shui-like effect.
What We Like About Heka Naturals Shungite Pyramid
The pyramid itself if pleasing to the eye, jet black with clean lines. It is rather heavy at 1.3 pounds and makes for a very nice table decoration.
If it can balance the energies in your home, at least it looks nice as well. The pyramid is made of Type II shungite, since Type I is very brittle and cannot be shaped in structures.
Although likely attributed to the placebo effect, many users claim great benefits from the pyramid. Some users report improved eyesight and reduced headaches. There are numerous claims by users of measurably-reduced EMF near the pyramid.
One user claimed a reduction near their laptop from an emission of 1000-3000 microTesla down to 13-49 microTesla, although the pyramid was on the laptop along with an additional 500 g of shungite.
What We Don’t Like About Heka Naturals Shungite Pyramid
The EMF effects, if there are any, cannot be explained by physical phenomena. It’s simply not how physics works.
For the pyramid to protect against EMF emissions as a stand-alone object, it would have to emit EMF in matched phase and as an inverse waveform to the ones in the local environment at the same or similar intensities. The pyramid would also have to compensate for a broad range of electromagnetic frequencies.
That being said, the claimed mechanisms of action do not involve shielding phenomena but are claimed to derive from the fullerine content of the mineral, which typically is less than 0.001% of the total mineral content. The presence of fullerines in the mineral allegedly re-modulates EMF to less harmful waveforms, yet the specifics of what the resulting waveforms look like are not divulged.
Some users have received chipped pyramids, which unfortunately can be expected with a brittle mineraloid. Many other users have tested the pyramid with EMF meters and found no effect.
- Looks cool
- Has to be a conversation starter in your living room
- Efficacy to mitigate EMF is doubtful
- Not Type I shungite, but then you wouldn’t have a pyramid
You get a Type II shungite pyramid (1.45 pounds shipping weight; 10 cm wide x 7 cm tall or 3.9 inches by 2.7 inches), a shipping box.
Overview Of Features
The pyramid is jet black, has a 4-sided base and is slightly broader than it is tall. There are several other sizes available if the 10 cm base is not to your liking: bases of 5 cm, 8 cm, and 15 cm (for the really big one).
Whether or not this object works as advertised, there is really no debate that it is interesting to look at and makes for a great living room decoration. A 4-inch wide jet black pyramid of a mineraloid from western Russia seems like a good deal and is a great kaffeeklatch conversation starter.
