Elite Shungite, which is always shiny metallic, has the highest carbon percentage, usually in the 90%. This type of shungite has the highest amounts of fullerenes to help against EMF's and water purification.
Shungite is a complex carbon compound from the ancient lake beds of Lake Onega area of Karelia Russia.
Shungite itself, however, is estimated to be several billion years old. True Shungite also contains small amounts of fullerenes, which is a microscopic, hollow, pure carbon molecule.
Fullerenes are believed to be an extremely powerful anti-oxidant and are being vigorously studied for there is a multitude of benefits for both health, and nano-technologies.
Peter the Great established the first spa in Russia near Karelia to take advantage of the purifying abilities of Shungite. Today, the anti-bacterial and water purifying abilities of the stone have been confirmed in modern labs.
There are several beliefs on where Shungite come from, with the two most popular theories being an ancient sea or ocean, or from an ancient meteorite.
The first theory is that there used to be an ancient ocean, sea, or lake, billions of years ago in the area that is now North-Western Russia. In this body of water, there was a very high concentration of early microscopic organisms.
Over the millennia, these organisms died and their deposits formed at the sea floor. The biological nature of these organisms would help to explain the unusually high amounts of carbon. Shifting of the Earth’s plates over time moved this deposit from this seabed onto land and it settled and concentrated in one area.
The other popular scientific theory is that the Shungite deposit is the result of a landed meteorite long ago. This would help to explain why it is almost entirely concentrated in one area, as well as the high carbon content.
There are quite a few ways of purifying water and making it safe to drink, including boiling, iodine, chlorine drops, water filters, ultraviolet lights, and much more. The problem is that many of these methods, although they will kill bacteria and organisms, will also degrade the quality of the water and increase the number of salts and heavy metals present in the water. Other methods, like the use of chlorine or iodine, can introduce dangerous chemicals into the water.
This is why Shungite has become so popular for its use in purifying water.
Placing shungite stones in water and letting them sit for a few days produces what most people call “shungite water.” This water goes all the way back to Czar Peter of Russia, who would provide water purified with shungite to his soldiers, and ran the first ever spa in Russia near the Karelia deposits.
Modern tests since then have confirmed the amazing water purifying capabilities of shungite, and it is now commonly found in water filtration systems.
Shungite has extremely powerful antibacterial capabilities. When the power of shungite to purify water was tested, harmful bacteria were artificially introduced into the water and after as little as an hour, the concentration of these bacteria was reduced dramatically.
Shungite has the ability to clean things like nitrates, chlorine, bacteria, and heavy metal from water. It also can clean the visual appearance of dirty water and improve the taste.
Use a few Elite Shungite stones, about 20 to 30 grams to enhance 1 gallon of water. You may find different recipes online, but experiment for yourself too.
EMF Radiation Protection~
Shungite is believed to have the ability to absorb and completely neutralize the dangerous frequencies from EMF radiation. The reason that Shungite is believed to be able to do this is due to the fullerenes inside.
Almost no materials in the world contain these fullerenes, which are hollow, pure carbon, molecules. These unique molecules are what scientists believe give shungite the ability to block EMF radiation.
In fact, the group of scientists who discovered fullerenes collectively won a Nobel prize in the late 1990s. Until fullerenes were found to be in Shungite, their existence in nature wasn’t even proven.
Pyramids are best for environmental emf's, best places closer to those devices such as the wifi or even the refrigerator. Pendants are good for the body as well as bracelets.
