Shungite, The 2 Billion Year Old Mineral
Shungite (Type I & Type II)
Locality: Russian Republic of Karelia
Type 1 Shungite contains 98% organic carbon, this is the most scarce form since it accounts for only 1 prevent of all Shungite found.
Type 2 occurs as a black mineral, it contains 50% to 70% organic carbon.
Found near the small village of Shun’ga in Russia, the remarkable mineral known as shungite formed naturally more than 2 billion years ago from living single-cell organisms. Used in Russian healing therapies since the time of Peter the Great, shungite contains almost the entire periodic table of the elements as well as fullerenes, the hollow carbon-based molecules that recent research shows are able to slow both the growth of cancer cells and the development of the aids virus.
Citing many double-blind scientific and medical studies on shungite, Regina Martino explains it’s many protective, healing, and detoxifying properties, including its ability to counteract the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields and radiation from computers, cell phones, WiFi, and other electronic devices and appliances. Acting as a natural antioxidant, immune booster, pain reliever, and allergen suppressant, shungite and shungite water can be used to treat skin ailments and musculoskeletal diseases, accelerate the healing of cuts and wounds, cleanse internal systems, and increase the body’s intake of vital energy. Detailing shungite’s many microelements and biologically active substances… the stones have been proved to purify and revitalize water.
Fullerenes are a newly discovered (1985) form of carbon which was previously only known to exist as Diamond, graphite or coal. Fullerenes are named after Buckminster Fuller, the American architect who designed geodesic domes which resembles spherical fullerenes in appearance. Fullerene C60 looks like a soccer ball and is also referred to as a “buckyball”. Fullerenes are Hollow spheres of strongly linked hexagonal and pentagonal rings. They have enabled so many breakthroughs in science medicine and Industry that the laboratory scientist to develop their use receive the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1996. The quantum behavior of fullerene has captured the attention of scientists who have observed a fullerene C60 buckyball passed through two different slits simultaneously, making it the largest particle known to demonstrate the wave / particle duality of matter.
Shungite offers protection against the negative effects of electromagnetic waves and has a very positive effect for the energetic system as a whole. It aligns, balances the chakras and increases the vital field. Shungite is also a very powerful stone for protection.
It’s important to note that Shungite in its natural state contains varying amounts of organic carbon. For this reason you will find stones being marketed under the name Shungite that have different appearances. The explanation is very simple: they contain different quantities of carbon.
Type 1 Shungite contains 98% organic carbon, this is the most scarce form since it accounts for only 1 prevent of all Shungite found. Type 2 occurs as a black mineral, it contains 50% to 70% organic carbon.
This mineral, formed billions of years ago, has been known for thousands of years by local people in the region of Lake Onega (the Russian part of Karelia). Much research has been done on the effects of Shungite and the following have been identified:
•Antibacterial •Antiviral •Anticancer agent
•Anti-inflammatory/Antioxidant •Antihistamine •Protection from ionizing and noniodizing radiation
