★ Metaphysical Properties and Mystic Lore: Shungite comes from only one place – Shunga in Russia. It is a very old carbonaceous rock of organic origin (mostly a carbon) but it also contains a lot of other elements like sulfur, oxygen and nitrogen, and also different metals such as vanadium, nickel, molybdenum, copper, tungsten and some others. Scientists estimate Shungite’s age to be almost 2 billion years. It is made up of ancient layers of the Earth’s crust that were formed PRE carbon life forms on the Earth! Shungite is an amorphous substance (no crystalline structure), but there are elements of graphitic, diamond and fullerene internal structures. What makes Shungite so unique and different from any other mineral is the presence of Fullerene molecules. Fullerene is one of 4 known crystalline modifications of carbon (the others are Diamond, graphite and carbon). Shungite is the only mineral known to contain Fullerenes! Shungite is an effective sorbent for removal of organic and inorganic substances, pathogenic bacteria and heavy metals from contaminated water. Water that’s had some Shungite put in it actually becomes biologically active within a 48 hour period. Scientists who have investigated this phenomenon have unanimously declared it a miracle! Filled with one of our favorite sacred geometric forms – the Fullerene – Shungite is the perfect match to the geometry of our beautiful planet. As above, So below. Fullerenes can be magnetic, act as superconductors or absorb light making it a powerful grounder, cleanser, transformer and healing ally. Shungite eliminates and absorbs all that imposes a hazard on people and living beings, but to concentrate and restore all that is helpful for a human being, and also to shield harmful electromagnetic radiation of any origin like computers, microwave ovens, TV sets, mobile phones etc. Shungite is believed to protect the human energy field and reduce stress, headache and insomnia. It’s thought to be beneficial for impotence, anemia, allergies, asthma, gastritis, dyspepsia, kidney diseases, liver diseases, diabetes, gall-bladder problems, immune system deterioration, pancreas diseases, common colds, cardiovascular diseases, cholecystitis, and chronic fatigue. Shungite elixir is also thought to be beneficial for hair and skin, and to have anti-bacterial capabilities. Just having a piece of Shungite on your person is said to be generally health boosting and protective from disease.
