Shungite

Post by Lynnie » Thu Apr 25, 2019 5:48 pm

I think I've just stumbled across one of Grahame's youtube videos. I was looking at ways of protecting yourself against EMF and found a video on Youtube saying that Shungite can protect you and demonstrating this.

I've been doing some further reading up about it and then found another video (unknown to me whilst I was watching) by Grahame demonstrating with several different meters that it does not offer any protection at all and that it appears to do so because you are holding the shungite (and you get the same effect by just holding your hand / finger by an EMF object).

Do I have this all correct? Are there any crystals that help such as smokey quartz?

Ah, you mean this one?


I made that in response to a number of other videos I'd seen where they were demonstrating that shungite eliminated EM fields by holding a piece of it between the meter and the item in question. As I pointed out, what is actually happening is that, because these hand-held meters rely on your body providing a connection to ground, it is actually your body that is earthing the field. The shungite is irrelevant. I got such a lot of troll comments on that video from shungite evangelists that I had to disable comments.

I'm not saying that shungite is devoid of benefits; only that it does not dissipate or absorb an electric or magnetic field as other videos claim. It didn't seem to have much effect on microwave fields from the Wi-Fi router either. I for one am not wasting any more money on it until I see some better evidence.

There is a video from a shungite manufacturer where they place a large puck of shungite on a plug board (without holding it) and the meter appears to reduce to zero. I'm pretty sure this is faked in some way but I haven't figured out how they do it yet. They clearly have a vested interest in promoting the stuff (that's why I'm not sharing a link to that particular video - you can search for it easily enough).

Yes, that's the very one; I was a tad envious of all the different meters you were using. I would love to get an acoustimeter but it's gone up by £100 quid since the last time I looked at the price. The time I will be pushed into getting one is if I have no other option but to succumb to having a smart meter or 5G, whichever comes first.

But thanks for the info on the video; I was a day a way from getting a load of shungite so I can put that towards an acoustimer :lol:

I may just get that book that was advertised at the end. I noticed that it is being updated. I'm particularly interested in 5G. Has the book been recently updated or is near another update?

The present edition dates from March 2018 but is still pretty up to date regarding 5G. I'm still seeing stuff that I researched at the time cropping up in news items today (such as 5G transmitters in manhole covers.

You can get the book directly from me HERE; it's also available on Kindle. Simon wrote a lovely review of the first edition HERE.

I have found this video where the person testing shungite is not putting his hand in between the meter and the test object. Wondered what Grahame's take on it was?

Yes, that's the one I mentioned in my first post. I'm convinced that there is some skulduggery going on, but I'm not exactly sure how they are doing it.

Firstly, you will notice that the meter is not being held in the first test. Yet hand-held meters rely on your body providing the connection to earth in order to get an accurate reading. Some meter models have a separate earthing lead to do just that, but this one does not.

Secondly, the way the meter gradually decreases to zero is deeply suspicious when the shungite is in place. It should drop much faster than that (assuming everything else is kosher). This suggests to me that something (e.g. maybe his other hand?) is being brought up underneath to earth the field, or that the meter itself is rigged in some way (more likely). Actually, the behaviour of the meter in general is dodgy, I've never seen a meter that performs as smoothly as this one does.

Third, the meter is measuring the electric fields (you can tell from the V/m in the top reading), yet when he places it beside the light switch in the second test, there is no reading until he switches the light on. Yet an electric field is present all the time in a light switch (or anything else if it's plugged in) whether it is switched on or not, and it should register on the meter then.

Finally, the video is produced by a shungite retailer, who clearly has a vested interest in promoting his product. Show me a good independent test and I might be more convinced.

If somebody wants to send me a chunk of shungite of a similar size to that one, I'll gladly try to replicate the test for you. But I'm not going to waste my money on it. :lol:

Thanks Grahame, that's really interesting. I've seen so many websites saying shungite can protect against EMF and then that video. I must admit the first that jumped out was the fact that there was a link to where you could buy it. But I was still interested in the actual video. As you say, there's something that doesn't feel right to me, based on my intuition which I trust, but can't work out what. That fits in with your intuition as well. I would dearly love to get an acoustimeter so I could try it out myself.

Any others have an acoustimeter with a piece of shungite they could test?

I rest my case.

And he's had exactly the same troll comments on the video that I was getting on mine, before I disabled comments as they had become a repetitive troll-fest ("did you test your shungite with a torch?/ shungite attenuates not eliminate/ it changes the spin/ you have fake shungite.." etc.). It was taking way too much of my time to moderate them so I turned them off.

That's my mind made up too, thanks for being patient whilst I was on my quest.
