Shungite is a unique combination of carbon and silicate minerals found in an ancient deposit in Karelia Russia. It is believed to be around 2 billion years old. It is a positive stone and using it will bring you blessings. It is beneficial to a healthy life. The enduring nature of Shungite is constant and unrelenting, never wavering from its strong centered source. Shungite can and will propel one along the direction of his or her path, keeping one focused, grounded and centered at all times. Although it's origin is not known, a couple of theories exist. One is that primitive microscopic organisms existed in shallow bays of the ancient sea and sea scurf rich in these organic remains formed a material that produced Shungite and. Another version states, Shungite is a part of a gigantic meteorite that brought a part of a decomposed planet called Phaeton to the Earth. Phaeton is believed to have had carbon-based life forms. The gigantic fragment brought them to earth and formed the Shungite field in the area of impact. Shungite is a powerful stone to shield you from the electro-magnetic radiation given off by electrical equipment, including computers, mobile phones, microwaves and televisions.
It has been the unique properties of this stone that got the attention of scientists, particularly the fact that it contains fullerenes. This stone is the only known natural source of fullerenes so this has made the scientists who have been testing it extremely interested in, not only its properties, but how mankind can use it. Shungite receives its healing power from one of its elements, fullerenes – a globular hollow molecule consisting of several dozens of carbon atoms. When fullerenes, a special molecular formation, were discovered in Shungite a few decades ago, it became a sensation. Fullerenes, getting in our body, behave as the most powerful and most long-acting antioxidant as a means to fight free radicals. Today, doctors have great hopes for fullerenes. The importance of this discovery is that until that time, scientists were aware only of three modifications of carbon - diamond, graphite and carbine. The new molecule cuts diamond as oil, slows down the growth of cancer cells, and substances from fullerenes can slow down the activity of the AIDS virus. The discovery of the fullerene was a real breakthrough in nanotechnology and was declared a sensation of the 20th century. The scientists who have made it received the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1996. 
Shungite contains almost the entire periodic table. However, as everyone knows, not all chemical elements have a positive effect on a human being. But this is just an amazing quality of this stone: only those elements which are necessary and useful for a living organism come into water. Shungite cures, rescues, purifies, heals, protects, normalizes, restores and even stimulates the growth. It kills and devours anything that harms people and other living beings, and concentrates and restores all that is good. The scholars who have studied Shungite in one voice declare, it is a miracle!"
