Shungite pendant with engraving for personal protection
Ægishjálmur, er en magisk stav, som skal beskytte deg mot fiender. Den er også kjent som "the helm of Awe" eller fryktens hjelm. Ægir som denne hjelmen/staven har fått navnet sitt fra er en jotun som hersker over havet. Ægir var gift med Rån. I Norønsk mytologi er Rån havet.
The Helm of Awe (Old Norse Ægishjálmr, pronounced “EYE-gis-hiowlm-er”) is one of the most mysterious and powerful symbols in Norse mythology. Just looking at its form, without any prior knowledge of what that form symbolizes, is enough to inspire awe and fear: eight arms that look like spiked tridents radiate out from a central point, as if defending that central point by going on the offensive against any and all hostile forces that surround it.
Such overpowering might was apparently what this magical symbol was intended to produce. In the Fáfnismál, one of the poems in the Poetic Edda, the havoc-wreaking dragon Fafnir attributes much of his apparent invincibility to his use of the Helm of Awe:
The Helm of Awe
I wore before the sons of men
In defense of my treasure;
Amongst all, I alone was strong,
I thought to myself,
For I found no power a match for my own.

Shungite stones can be divided into three types depending on the content of carbon in it.
Type III and type II shungite is usually called regular shungite stone and they contain from 30 to 50 per cent of carbon and from 50 to 90 per cent of carbon respectively. Shungite with the carbon contect of more than 90 % has silvery surface and is called elite shungite
Nowadays shungite can be also referred to as a magical stone, a stone of life or a healing mineral due to its multiple healing, curative and protective properties that goes back far more than several generations. Some experts claim that the mineral is approximately 2 billion years old and it starts its existence long before life existed on Earth.

Besides, shungite has a unique structure consisting of fullerenes, which is a crystalline modification of carbon. Fullerenes are considered as one of the most powerful antioxidants that protects cells of a human body from the damaging effects of free radicals and spherical fullerene molecules contained in the shungite carbon make it extremely useful in cosmetic medicine and beauty culture.

AUTHENTICITY OF SHUNGITE
The authenticity of the shungite pieces can be proved with a simple test. One of the brightest features of authentic shungite as a stone is that it is electrically conductive. Thus, you can take a battery, bulb and two wires and make streamline of electricity coming from battery to bulb with one of the wires being connected to battery and another to bulb with a shungite stone between them. If shungite it authentic you will see that the shungite conducts electricity and bulb lightens due to the high carbon content in shungite, which is not usually seen with other stones.
