Shungite is a unique Precambrian carbonaceous natural mineral of organic origin that can be found in its raw form only in the Republic of Karelia, the Russian Federation, where the only deposit of this amazing mineral is located. The stone received its name from the name of a small village called Shunga where it was first discovered. Shungite stones can be divided into three types depending on the content of carbon in it. Type III and type II shungite is usually called regular shungite stone and they contain from 30 to 50 per cent of carbon and from 50 to 90 per cent of carbon respectively. Shungite with the carbon contect of more than 90 % has silvery surface and is called elite shungite.
Nowadays shungite can be also referred to as a magical stone, a stone of life or a healing mineral due to its multiple healing, curative and protective properties that goes back far more than several generations. Some experts claim that the mineral is approximately 2 billion years old and it starts its existence long before life existed on Earth.
In a modern world shungite is widely used in various fields including metallurgical and chemical industries, agriculture, medicine and spirituality, to name but a few. The brightest properties of shungite that made shungite famous all over the world are water purification, physical and spiritual healing, and protection against electro-magnetic frequency (EMF) radiation that is surrounding us in the form of gadgets in the modern days.
Besides, shungite has a unique structure consisting of fullerenes, which is a crystalline modification of carbon. Fullerenes are considered as one of the most powerful antioxidants that protects cells of a human body from the damaging effects of free radicals and spherical fullerene molecules contained in the shungite carbon make it extremely useful in cosmetic medicine and beauty culture.
Therefore, shungite is capable of reducing the effects of EMF radiation, neutralizing geopathic stress and tension, activating healing properties of the human body and providing physical and spiritual healing to a person using it. All these properties contribute to the fact that this magical stone is so popular all over the world.
