Chemical Composition and Properties
Found only in the northern Russian district of Karelia, Shungite was formed about 2 billion years ago. Shungite is composed of nearly all the elements of the Periodic Table. Though it is commonly known that not all chemical elements are beneficial to life forms, a surprising feature of this mineral is that only its health-giving components are absorbed by water. Moreover, experts have reason to believe that water contained in shungite deposits gave birth to life, because its natural structures and complexes are so similar to those of a living cell.
It is a mineral with healing power and properties to which nothing else in the world can be compared. Shungite cures, purifies, protects, normalizes, induces recovery and promotes growth in living organisms. Everything which takes a toll on us, is killed; and everything health-giving is concentrated and restored by this miracle rock. Every scientist investigating shungite, declares it to be miraculous.
Shungite is the only Mineral that Contains Fullerenes. Only recently discovered, fullerenes were among the scientific sensations of the 20th century. Named after the great architect, Buckminster Fuller, this closed, hollow cage of 60 or more carbon atoms that form a fullerene molecule, resembles the geodesic domes popularized in his work. The shape of the fullerene molecule is similar to that of a soccer ball. Fullerenes are found in very minute quantities in nature, usually formed by lightening charges. How they came to be present in the shungite mineral remains a mystery. Realizing their full potential will be one of the great sensations of the 21st century.
