These are adorable figurines that has been carved out of raw and natural Shungite. It is a variety of 4 different animals to choose from. There is a bird, hedgehog, bear, and an owl.
Shungite is a rare black stone made of up to 99 percent of carbon. It’s mainly found in Shunga, a village in Karelia, Russia. The stone has a unique composition. It contains fullerenes, or 3-D spherical molecules made of 60 carbon atoms. These molecules are hollow and sometimes called buckyballs.
Here is a really interesting fact, Along with fullerenes, shungite consists of nearly all the minerals on the periodic table. The origin of shungite is a mystery. Typically, materials made of carbon come from decayed organic substances like old forests. But the stone is thought to be at least 2 billion years old. This is before organic life existed on the planet.
