Shungite is very old, ancient in fact, said to be around 2 billion years old. It is an extraordinarily positive stone, and using it may bring you a variety of blessings.
This is an amazing stone, and one that is beneficial to a healthy life. It is one of the only known natural material known to contain fullerenes, which are powerful anti-oxidants.
Fullerenes were brought to our attention when research on them gained the scientists a Nobel prize. This is because the fullerenes in this stone will cleanse water then infuse it with a potent healing vibration.
The energy embodied within this ancient stone is said to absorb and eliminate anything that is a health hazard to human life, and it has active metaphysical properties with strong healing powers.
This is a rare stone, in that it has only been found in the Karelia area in Russia. It is not new to people of the region, as Czar Peter was known to have come to the region to use water that had been infused with this mineral.
The origin of this ancient, 2 billion year old Schungite stone is clouded in mystery, as how it came to occur on this planet is unclear.
Some say this stone may have been formed in ancient oceans, which were inhabited by a variety of microscopic organism that no longer lives in our oceans.
It is believed that when these organisms died, they broke down and became part of the sea-bed, forming these unusual rocks. Later it ended up on the land when land forms changed.
Other scientists hypothesize that maybe it came to earth from outer space on a meteorite. While no one really knows, due to its powerful properties more scientists have been looking into its powerful attributes and how they can benefit you.
What is important to me is how this stone works in your life, and I find it the fact that it contains Fullerenes very interesting.
There has been dedicated research done on fullerenes, and the scientists doing this research won the Noble prize as it was deemed that their work was so important to mankind.
Fullerenes are powerful anti-oxidants, and their presence in this stone seems to be quite unique.
It has been noted that this stone has strong healing qualities, and that Shungite will help to neutralize any organism within your body that is harmful to you.
This is an amazing claim, but this black stone has been in use for a very long time in Russia where they have been documenting these qualities.
Since this stone was discovered in Russia in the 1700's, they have been recording amazing results from its use. They use shungite chips of various sizes to purify water.
Shungite is a powerful stone to shield you from the electromagnetic radiation given off by electrical equipment, including computers, mobile phones, microwaves and televisions.
It also has an action that heals those who have developed a sensitivity to man-made electrical devices. It also assists those who are sensitive to internet and cell phone towers, as well as to computer emanations and wi-fi emissions.
It embodies an excellent ability to make a connection to the earth, and may be in a variety of shapes. This includes spheres or pieces of stone that have been carved in pyramids, as well as pendulums. Any type of shape can be utilized for this purpose.
At the Saint-Petersburg Military Medical Academy, they are examining the curative properties of products and medicines made from Schungite, as it is known in Russia.
These products have tested and studied, and it has been the unique properties of this stone that got the attention of scientists, particularly the fact that it contains fullerenes.
Shungite stone is one of 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.
They have discovered a list of quite disparate properties, and their presence in this stone is also unique, according to documented evidence collected on it. The people of the area where it was found have used it for a very long time.
It is fascinating to look at possible future uses that are being planned for this newly discovered compound. Fullerenes are being investigated for many industrial uses and some of these are quite interesting.
Products that you may expect to hear about includes it being used as part of solar electric generating devices in place of silicone, in makeup to stop UV damage. It is also being looked at as a future part of techniques to help allergic conditions, including asthma.
There are a number of crystal books now available, and some have very in-depth information on the healing attributes of various crystals.
One book in particular that goes into the attributes of Shungite and its specific action to assist electromagnetic sensitivity is Crystal Prescriptions Volume Three... shown below.
In this book, Judy Hall has covered this subject in some detail and explains the way to use it and make crystal essences from the stone.
All of the books below are excellent books to assist you to learn more about the crystals in your collection. If you'd like to learn more about the various books and what they cover check out my book review page.
