Crystal Lovers – Have You Discovered Shungite Yet? Now in Stock at Wise Cicada

March 21st, 2017 Posted by Great Gift Ideas @ Wise Cicada, The Latest & Greatest No Comment yet

shungite

Have you heard of an antioxidant called fullerene? Neither had we, until we recently added the mineral Shungite to our crystal cabinet selection. The scientific community discovered fullerenes in 1985, but long before that, this stone (containing fullerenes) was well known in Russia. Tradition states that you can add this special, carbon rich, stone to your water to purify it whilst also receiving a dose of antioxidants ……. care of the Earth’s mineral heritage.

Shungite is unique to Karelia in Russia, where the only deposit of this special rock is found. The stone received its name from the village of Shunga where it was first discovered. Shungite can be divided into three types depending on the content of carbon in it. Type III is usually called regular shungite stone and contains 30 to 50 % carbon, type II shungite contains 50 to 90 %. Shungite with a carbon content of more than 90 % has a silvery surface and is called elite shungite.

Regarded as a special healing stone by many, shungite is famed for its water purification uses, physical and spiritual healing potential, and help protecting against electro-magnetic frequency (EMF) the radiation emitted from modern gadgets.

Peter the Great, a shungite fan, set up Russia’s first spa in Karelia to utilise the water purifying properties of the stone. He also used it to help provide purified water to the Russian army, as it is claimed to offer anti-bacterial properties.

As we’ve suggested, the unique structure of shungite consists of fullerenes, a crystalline modification of carbon. Fullerenes are considered to be a powerful antioxidant, protecting human cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.

The spherical fullerene molecules contained in shungite carbon also make it useful in the cosmetic and medicine industries.

It is suggested that shungite may: help reduce the effects of EMF radiation, neutralizing geopathic stress and tension: help activate healing properties in the human body and promote physical and spiritual healing to a person using it.

Come in to Wise Cicada sometime and hold a piece for a while to see what you think and feel for yourself.

We Now Have an Organic Certified, Freeze Dried, Tropical Fruit Option on the Wise Cicada Shelves

March 21st, 2017 Posted by Go Organic, The Latest & Greatest No Comment yet

Freeze-dried-Powders

This high quality tropical fruit is preserved with all original nutrients, flavour and colour retained. The freeze-drying process is 100% chemical free. Fruit is frozen, then dried by reducing the surrounding pressure to allow the frozen water in the material to sublimate directly from the solid phase to the gas phase.

And now that you’ve heard the technical  part, we must also remind you how diverse and wonderful an ingredient these concentrated parcels of flavour, colour and nutrition can be for enhancing your creative cooking endeavours.

La Petite Epicerie Saigon, a company founded by three young French food lovers in Ho Chi Minh City in 2013, has recently set up a New Zealand distribution division. This means we now have some exciting new organic options coming through to fill gaps in the organic dried goods aisles and the local seasonal market.
