Glossary of Stones

  • Shungite

    Found in only one place near Lake Omega in the Shunga region of Karelia, North West Russia, the mineral Shungite is a semi-hard black amorphous coal like material composed of more than 95% carbon. Regarded as a “wonder stone” it is said to kill and absorb everything that does harm to people and to concentrate and restore everything that is useful.

    Shungite receives its healing power from one of its elements, fullerenes – a globular hollow molecule consisting of several dozens of carbon atoms. When fullerenes, a special molecular formation, were discovered in Shungite a few decades ago, it became a sensation. Fullerenes, absorbed in our body, behaves as the most powerful and most long-acting antioxidant as a means to fight free radicals. Scientists who have investigated Shungite unanimously declared it is a miracle mineral. The discovery of the fullerene was a real breakthrough in nanotechnology and was declared a sensation of the 20th century. The scientists who have made it received the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1996.

    Currently Shungite attracts many scientists, manufacturers and politicians as a promising material for solution of many complex environmental problems and improvement of the environment in the modern world. Today, doctors have great hopes for fullerenes.

    Shungite exhibits unique shielding effects against harmful electromagnetic radiation of any origin such as computers, microwave ovens, TV sets, mobile phones, etc. Shungite shields against electromagnetic radiation of high and ultra high frequency. Shungite is a help for headaches, stomach pain, spots on skin, aches in a back and others. Shungite water helps ones who struggle with various illnesses, the general condition improves, nervous pressure is removed, and the inflow of energy is sensed. It is easier to obtain a steady remission of chronic diseases of gastrointestinal tract, liver, kidneys and metabolic processes. Shungite pyramids are a shield for hazardous radiation. (Scientific investigation shows that pathogenic and electromagnetic radiation causes heart diseases and up to 60% of cancer diseases.) Also, substances from fullerenes can slow down the activity of the AIDS virus.

    The unique healing properties of Shungite, and Shungite natural water sources, had no scientific explanation for a long time. But these properties were so evident that medicine has recognized the healing properties of Shungite water, even without finding out how exactly it works. You can place your Shungite crystals in 3 liters of water for 48 hours – only in a glass container [not plastic]. It is recommended to drink at least 2-3 glasses of Shungite water a day to cure or prevent digestive, muscular or neural system illnesses and to increase circulation of blood. The water will be cleared and will become biologically active. The Shungite stones can then be placed in sun light every month and replaced every 6 months. The stones can also be cleared and charged by putting them outside until they are dry and then placing them on Selenite every third or fourth use, to cleanse and recharge the Shungite.

    In closing, Shungite is: a natural antioxidant that can increase human immunity with regards to many serious illnesses and suppress the development of many allergic diseases; a sorbent, purifying air and water from many organic and inorganic compounds and from excess of free radicals; a catalyst, which ensures decomposition of organic substances sorbed and restoration of the sorption properties; a carrier of wide range of micro-elements and biologically active substances, intensifying biological processes in the bodies of human beings and animals; a material, actively interacting with electromagnetic fields of different nature (anthropogenic high-frequency, solar, geopathogenic biofields) and neutralizing their negative impact.

    It possesses: absorbtive activity; the ability to absorb substances from the environment; bactericidal action; high level of adhesion, the ability to connect with any substance; anti-inflammatory and antihistaminic effects; radio shield properties; electro-conductivity; and the ability to absorb oxygen, and actively interact with it at the room temperature in water and in the air.
