Shungite is the world's oldest hydrocarbon-based rock. Shungite comes from only one place on Earth - an area known as Karelia, which is a geographic area divided between Russia and Finland. Shungite dates back two billion years to the Precambrian era. This was a time when life on our planet was limited to primitive single-celled organisms. Shungite formed when organisms accumulated and mixed with mud and silt on the bottom of a brackish water body. Geothermal heat and compression transformed these organic materials into liquid hydrocarbons - like oil—which very slowly became petrified into the rock.
If you find yourself particularly drawn to a specific rock, then that's the one you should choose. There's a reason why you're attracted to it.

Lattice is a passionate soul who loves bunnies. In her journey towards connection with Mother Earth, she found an affinity with Mother Earth's jewelry years ago. With an inherent need to connect with her jewels, Lattice crafted many trinkets that now adorn her wrists.
As her connection to Mother Earth grew stronger, Lattice started vibing every single crystal that landed in her lap. And in her quest to find homes for all crystals that come her way, Lattice creates stories for each of her crystal babies in the way she perceives them. A lover of the sun, sand and sea, these elements will strengthen her connection to Mother Earth and her creations.
