Shungite is a rare, carbon-based, ancient stone found in Shunga, a village in Karelia, Russia.
The stone has a unique composition and is one of the few substances found on earth to contain Fullerenes.
Fullerenes are 3-D spherical molecules made of carbon atoms. These molecules are hollow and sometimes called buckyballs.
Fullerenes are a pretty recent discovery. The scientists who discovered Fullerenes were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1996.
The true origin of Shungite is a mystery. Most carbon comes from decayed organic matter. However, Shungite stone is thought to be at least 2 billion years old. As this was before organic matter existed on the earth, it is not known where the Carbon contained in Shungite originated from.
While not proven, many scientists believe that Shungite was deposited from a meteorite that hit the earth 2 billion years ago, and that the Carbon came from space.
Although scientists are unsure of how Shungite was formed or where it came from, they attribute the stone’s many benefits to its high Carbon and high Fullerene content.
Shungite has been studied for decades in Russia. According to Russian studies, these are some of the benefits Shungite offers:
Kills Bacteria & Viruses
Fullerenes are a type of carbon nanostructure (CNS). CNSs are different physical forms of carbon. A 2017 study found that CNSs are able to destroy harmful pathogens by damaging the cell walls of bacteria and viruses.
Purifies & Charges Water
Shungite has been used to purify and charge water since ancient times. The natural Carbon in Shungite acts as a 'filter' adsorbing impurities in the water. The Fullerenes contribute to giving the water certain anti-oxidant properties that have been found to youth and beautify skin and hair.
A 2018 study found that Shungite can remove contaminants and organic substances like pesticides. A 2017 study found that Carbon from Shungite can remove radioactive compounds from water.
Eases Physical Ailments
Traditionally in Russia, water infused with Shungite, known as Shungite Water, has been used for:
- sore throats
- gastric issues
- kidney problems
- liver problems
- gallbladder issues
- autoimmune disease
- pancreatic dysfunction
- chronic fatigue
Protects from EMFs and Radiation
A 2003 study found that rats that were exposed to EMF fields were protected from adverse reactions to the EMFs when Shungite was placed in their vicinity. The unique EMF clearing properties Shungite possesses is attributed to its high Carbon and Fullerene count.
