Do not cleanse shungite under running tap water that contains chlorine or other contaminants. Distilled, reverse osmosis (RO) or filtered (clean) water are best.
History: Shungite (CO2), is believed to be metamorphosed oil shale. Fullerenes have been discovered in this rock. Fullerenes are a form of carbon molecule that are neither graphite nor diamond. Clusters of fullerenes join diamonds and graphite as the third known form of crystalline carbon. Fullerenes were discovered in 1985 by Robert Curl and Richard Smalley. Together with Harold Kroto they synthesized these three-dimensional forms of carbon while trying to simulate the high-temperature, high pressure conditions necessary for the formation of stars. Their discovery won them the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1996
Fullerenes were nicknamed after Richard Buckminster Fuller, an architect known for the design of geodesic domes which resemble spherical fullerenes in appearance. A spherical fullerene looks like a soccer ball and are often called “buckyballs”, and the cylindrical fullerenes are known as “buckytubes” or “nanotubes”. Shungite has a hardness of 3.5-4 on the Mohs scale of hardness. It is found in only one place in the world, which is Zazhoginskoye deposit near Lake Onega in the Shunga region of Karelia, North West of Russia.
Shungite is a hard black, amorphous, coal-like material composed or more than 98% carbon. They consist of spherical, ellipsoid or cylindrical arrangement of dozens of carbon atoms. Shungite rocks have also been classified purely on their carbon content, with Shungite(1) having a carbon content in the range 98-100 weight percent and Shungite(2), (3), (4) and (5) having contents in the ranges 35-80 percent, 20-35 percent, 10-20 percent and less than 10 percent. In a further classification, shungite is subdivided into bright, semi-bright, semi-dull and dull on the basis of their luster (the terms matt, polished, dull, unpolished are all used to describe its sheen).
Shungite has been used by the military for EMF protection. It is excellent for high frequency emissions and is used in protective EMF paints and patented designs for aircraft. And is currently being explored for many uses including UVF protection in make-up.
Shungite is used in some large city reservoirs to clean up the water and sold for home use to use in the bottom of water jugs for sparkling clean water that is mineralogically active. It is an excellent sorbent, purifying air and water from many organic and inorganic compounds and the abundance of free radicals.Russian scientists have been studying shungite for over 100 years and calculate its existence on earth at almost 2 billion years. Even though shungite is a fairly new discovery and is still relatively unknown, it has already been coined The Stone of Life. The Stone of the 21st Century and Medicine of the 21st Century.
