Shungite is capable of protecting and healing you simultaneously. Shungite is a black stone found only in Karelia, Russia. While most stones are the result of recycled organic matter, Shungite is believed by some to be one of the elements on Earth responsible for life on the planet. This is precisely why it’s often referred to as “the stone of life.”
Amongst ancient cultures, shungite was said to be used to treat allergies, skin diseases, diabetes mellitus, stomatitis, periodontal disease, hair loss, cosmetic flaws, and many other diseases.
In 1996, Sir Harold Kroto, Robert Curl, and Richard Smalley won a Nobel Prize for their discovery of fullerenes. Fullerenes are anti-everything harmful to us, including viruses, bacteria, fungus, pathogens, fluoride, chlorine and so much more, and they are only found in Shungite. Fullerenes are not abundant in all Shungite. The highest concentrations are found only in Elite Shungite, and to a much lesser degree in Black Shungite.
The antibacterial properties of shungite have been confirmed by testing. These are possibly due to the extremely high heavy metal content of the mineral. Shungite consists of nearly all the minerals on the periodic table and exhibits antioxidant properties.
Elite or Noble Shungite is the highest quality Shungite. It contains over 90% of carbon. It is a rare black stone with a silvery shiny appearance. Due to its high carbon content, this type of Shungite has the most powerful benefits in healing and EMF protection.
Black Shungite or Petrovsky Shungite contains 75-50% carbon; it has a deep black color, similar to coal. Black Shungite is industrially mined, and due to its composition – carbon, other minerals, and chemical elements – can be cut in various shapes and polished.
Shungite is a water purifier.
Placing 25g of Shungite in 1 Litre of Water for several hours, is a great way to infuse your water with fullerenes, a rich antioxidant.
Drinking Shungite is also a great way to embody the metaphysical powers of the stone, by drinking them.
Drinking water is also an extremely beneficial way to detoxify the body.
