Figures from shungite
You Can't Resist These Shungite Figurines
Why We Love Them
But we love this mineraloid because it is soft enough to be carved into the most beautiful figurines. These figures from shungite can include puppies, turtles, birds, angels and others. The figurines can be touchingly realistic, like a cat stalking its prey or scratching its face. They can be playful, like an owl playing a drum, a frog sitting on a bed of coins or a mermaid. What they all are is irresistible. You won’t be able to choose just one, and fairly soon you will have a collection.
They also have textures that beg to be touched. Delight in the roughened feel of the fur of a bear or a cat rendered in shungite! Stroke the smooth contours of a polished puppy and kitten figurine. That’s another thing about shungite mineral figures. A figurine can have a lovely matte finish or can be polished until it shines like a black mirror. Some have both. Notice how the eyes of an otherwise rough hewn puppy or kitten or even the nose of a bear cub gleam like obsidian.
Great for the Home
Place these shungite figurines your curio cabinet, especially if it’s lit from within. Arrange a grouping on a sofa table or a lamp table, or put a couple in your china closet. Add some flowers, and they’ll make a terrific centerpiece. You will enjoy your lovely shungite figurines for years to come.
