The name Shungite was first used in 1800s to describe the high-carbon (98%+) mineraloids found in Russia near Shunga (in the Lake Onega area of Karelia)
This high-Carbon variety of Shungite is the stone linked to claims of water purification and anti-bacterial properties. However, there are many other Shungite-containing minerals with much lower proportions of carbon.
These vary greatly with the Carbon content ranging from less than 10% up to about 80%. The lower the percentage of Carbon, the lower the amount of fullerenes. Fullerenes, which are found in shungite, are a type of carbon nanostructure (CNS). CNSs are different physical forms of carbon. CNSs can destroy harmful pathogens.
They reportedly work by damaging the cell walls of bacteria and viruses.
Additionally, when CNSs interact with microbes, the microbes lose electrons and die.
Shungite has the ability to absorb and completely neutralize the dangerous waves from 5G & EMF radiation.
Many theories surround the origin of this precious mineral. On the one hand, some scientists believe that an ancient ocean existed somewhere in the region that is modern-day North-Western Russia.
Over time, the unusually high number of microscopic organisms that inhabited these waters died, and their deposits formed on the seafloor.
Due to the biological nature of these organisms along with the shifting of the earth’s crust over time, these deposits shifted onto land and settled in one area to form the rock.
On the other hand, a different faction of the scientific world believes that the mineral deposits are the result of a space meteorite that landed in the region eons ago.
This appears to be a more plausible explanation given its high concentration in one area as well as its high carbon composition.
What is shungite used for?
- Water purification
- EMf protection
Shungite water filtration cleans water by removing phenol, iron, manganese, chlorine, nitrates, nitrites, bacteria and micro-organisms
