What is so special about Shungite?

Shungite is an amazing mineral (sometimes referred to as a crystal) that has a rich history of use for its traditional healing, cleansing, and energy protection properties and has been making waves in the health and wellness world in recent years. 

Many people find Shungite a natural and holistic way to naturally enhance their wellbeing and protect themselves from the ever-increasing amount of unnatural frequencies and pollution of our world. There is a growing body of anecdotal evidence to support this.  

What is Shungite?

Shungite is a type of carbon-rich mineral believed to have formed over 2 billion years ago and is only found in one place in the world - Karelia, Russia. It's estimated to be around 2 billion years old, making it one of the oldest minerals on the planet. This black, glossy rock comprises a complex combination of carbon, including fullerenes, unique carbon molecules in the shape of a ball only found naturally in shungite. These fullerenes found within Shungite are what is believed to have the most healing effect on our bodies. 


Different Types of Shungite

Shungite isn't just good for water. There are three different types of shungite: Elite Type 1, Type 2 (Black), and Type 3 Regular (Grey), and each type has its own unique properties and uses. 

Elite shungite, for example, is the rarest, making up only 1% of all Shungite deposits. Elite Shungite is said to have the highest concentration of fullerenes, making it the most sought-after type for its potential health benefits. Made up of 98% Carbon, it is one of the highest carbonised materials on Earth. 

Type two shungite has a black colour of approximately 64% carbon and is often used in jewellery for protection from EMFs and overall wellbeing, while Type 3 shungite is more commonly used for construction and other industrial purposes.

People also use Shungite for various other health benefits, such as reducing inflammation, boosting the immune system and protecting from Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMFs). Some even claim that Shungite can alleviate headaches, stress, and anxiety. While more research is needed to fully understand the potential health benefits of Shungite, many people report positive results and find it to be a natural, holistic way to improve their wellbeing.

Shungite has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for its healing properties. It is believed to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions. Shungite has powerful cleansing and purifying properties, making it a popular choice for use in saunas, spas, and other wellness treatments. From water purification to jewellery for EMF protection, shungite has various benefits, making it a versatile and valuable mineral.


How Shungite Protects against EMF

Regina Martino, a Bioenergetics researcher, has been conducting studies on Shungite since 2006. In her studies, she discovered that Shungite has the highest ability to realign our vital energy field. 

In her book 'Shungite' 2014 She states the by just having Shungite on or near your body, it can transform unnatural EMFs into biologically compatible frequencies, thereby reducing the effects of the EMFs that are ever present in our daily lives from Wifi, 5G, Cell towers, Smart meters, TVs. 

Ideally Regina recommends we should have Shungite on us and around us daily. Wearing a Necklace/ Pendant will protect us while we move around and have Pryamids / Cubes located in the home to create 'safe zones'. 

Using Shungite plates on our cell phones, TVs and other small devices. Larger Pryamids next to our Wifi, smart meters and larger radiation-producing devices if we can't eliminate these by removing from our lives or turning them off. 


Shungite Water

One of the most popular uses of shungite is for water purification. Shungite water is made by soaking shungite stones in water, which is said to neutralise harmful chemicals and other contaminants. Some potential benefits of shungite water include better hydration, increased energy, healing digestional illnesses and reduced stress levels.

To support these claims, a study conducted by the National University of Food Technology in Kyiv, Ukraine, found that shungite has the ability to purify water by removing heavy metals and organic pollutants as well as placing trace minerals back into the water, making it 'live' water again. This study provides scientific evidence for the traditional use of shungite in water purification. 

And the best part? Making shungite water at home is super easy. All you have to do is put shungite stones in a glass or pitcher of water and let them soak for 24-48 hours. It is a fantastic way to start the day by drinking two glasses of Shungite-infused water first thing in the morning.


In conclusion, Shungite is a mineral gaining popularity for its versatile uses and potential health benefits. Whether you're looking for a natural way to purify your water, protection from the ever-increasing amount of EMFs, or potentially help to enhance your overall health, Shungite is worth checking out. With its unique composition and centuries of use, shungite is a mineral that continues to amaze and inspire people all over the world.

A lot of the research to be found on Shungite is in Russian with the Western world only just waking up to the massive health benefits of adding Shungite into our daily lives.
