Origin of Name & Mythology: Named for the type location. Originally described from Shun'ga area, Shun'ga village, Onega lake, Karelia Republic, Northern Region, Russia. The material is not officially recognised by the International Mineralogical Association (IMA). The term ‘shungite’ was originally used in 1879 to describe a mineraloid with more than 98 percent carbon. More recently the term has also been used to describe shungite-bearing rocks, which has led to some confusion. Shungite has been used since the 18th century for its purification properties, specifically in purifying water and removing microbials.
