Shungite is a blackish mass in appearance and is by no means a beautiful stone. However, it has great power to be called a miracle stone.
It is called Shungite because it is produced in Shun’ga, Republic of Karelia (Russia). Shungite has so far only been found there.
The main component of Shungite is carbon, which is thought to be fossilized from plankton, etc. about 2 billion years ago (Precambrian).
Although stone is amorphous (no crystal structure), it has not been recognized as a mineral because there are many mysteries in the formation process. Since diamond and graphite are currently the only carbon minerals, Shungite has the potential to become a third carbon mineral.
In the Republic of Karelia, where it is produced, it is deposited mixed with meteorite fragments that came flying in ancient times, and it is amorphous (no crystal structure) and can be found only in one place on the earth, so like Moldavite. There is also a theory that Shungite itself may be the remains of a giant meteorite.
How does Shungite Look:
There are actually two types of stones called shungite.
One is a black type with a matte texture that is not glossy like graphite. It has a carbon content of about 30% and also contains other minerals such as silicic acid. When you touch it with your hands, it has a slightly rough texture. This type is processed into beads for bracelets, round balls, pyramids, etc.
The other is a glossy, seemingly blackish hematite-like type (much lighter than hematite). This is a high-purity stone made of 90-100% carbon and is found only in a limited part of the sedimentary layer. Therefore, words that mean “excellent” and “noble” are added, and they are called “elite shungite” and “noble shungite”. It is much more expensive than regular Shungite.
Due to its high carbon purity and fragility, it is not possible to make processed products as it is.
Both stones are light and soft to the touch, and although they feel somehow warm due to their carbon content, they have a black soot-like powder on their hands.
Benefits of Shungite:
Following are the benefits of Shungite:
- Adsorption and excretion
- elimination of injuries, water purification,
- rejuvenation, improvement of immunity / bioenergy,
- promotion of recovery from injuries / diseases,
Healing effects of Shungite:
Shungite has been reported to have various healing effects, probably because it contains natural fullerenes that remove active oxygen (free radicals) as explained in the previous section.
Typical examples are sterilization of water, removal of harmful components, detoxification in the body, anti-aging of skin, improvement of immunity, improvement of energy deficiency, reduction of fatigue and stress.
In addition, as a specific case, there is a report that it is effective for muscle inflammation, joint disease, rheumatism, gout, heart disease, angiopathy, etc., but it is still in the research stage including cancer and AIDS treatment. , Not a definitive effect. The future is expected.
In addition, it is said that drinking Shungite water made by putting Shungite in water is effective, but the stones sold on this site are for amulets and ornamental purposes only. When using it for drinking water, please use it at your own risk.
Magical effects of Shungite:
The meaning of Shungite as a gemstone is “a vacuum cleaner that sucks in injuries.” Moreover, the vacuum cleaner has “magic square suction power”.
The power of Shungite is simply to “suck (suck) and spit out”.
I think that the black mass of material Shungite is easier to understand if you imagine a black sponge rather than a stone.
The sponge absorbs water and swells, and when squeezed it spits out water.
Shungite also inhales and exhales injuries.
However, it does not suck in gently like a sponge, but it is like a vacuum cleaner that sucks in dust and dirt with an ultra-high speed motor and expels clean air. The motor of a vacuum cleaner is a myriad of three-dimensional magic squares that rotate at the nano level.
A magic square is a figure that traps or keeps magic, amplifying or erasing magical power. There are various shapes such as pentagons and hexagons.
When a two-dimensional figure is three-dimensionalized, it becomes a star-shaped polyhedron called a Marca Buster. The genius Leonardo da Vinci also studied three-dimensional figures with power and left behind various polyhedra called “Da Vinci’s Star”.
Shungite is a stone that contains innumerable three-dimensional magic squares.
Please imagine it. There are countless nano-level soccer ball-shaped magic squares, and they are spinning at super high speed. The rotation sucks in physical and non-physical impurities, converts them into clean energy, and exhales it. It is a vacuum cleaner that nature has given to humans.
How to cleanse Shungite:
Smugging with white sage leaves will leave the scent more likely than other stones (if you don’t like the scent, it’s okay). Purification with crude salt damages stones.
The most recommended purification method is the purification method that lets you hear the sound of the crystal tuner.

History and Legends of Shungite:
Shungite has so far been found only in the Republic of Karelia, Russia.
It has long been known locally as a “healing stone” that is good for your health. Locals use water containing shungite on a daily basis, which is why few people get sick and the injuries heal quickly. There are also reports that cut flowers and fruits last very long when water with shungite is used.
In fact, this stone was also used by Peter the Great, who transformed Russia into a great empire.
His grandmother was said to have overcome infertility by drinking Shungite water and thanked Karelia for building a monastery.
Peter the Great also ordered a doctor to study Shungite, and experimented by using water soaked in Shungite himself. Convinced of its effect, Russia’s first sanatorium was set up in Karelia, which produces shungite. The injured soldiers were sent in and treated with hot spring water purified using Shungite.
Russia at that time was only a remote nation in Eastern Europe, and was oppressed by the mighty military nation Sweden. It was the Battle of Poltava in 1709 that defeated Sweden and triggered the birth of the Russian Empire.
The battle continued to suffer from visceral diseases such as diarrhea in both armies, and the morale of the soldiers was declining. There, Pyotr orders his soldiers to carry Shungite. Russian soldiers who drank the water purified with this stone were released from visceral diseases and regained their energy, defeating more Swedish troops.
This “Battle of Poltava” became Sekigahara, and the hegemony of Eastern Europe shifted from Sweden to Russia. A huge Russian empire will be born.
Properties of Shungite:
|Mineral name||Not yet registered as an official mineral species|
|Main production areas||Republic of Karelia (Russia)|
|Chemical composition||C 79 H 19 O 1.5 N 0.3|
|Crystal habit (shape)||—|
|Main shades||Black, silver black|
|Similar stone non-made||Black onyx, tourmaline, black crystal, hematite|
Shungite is amorphous and its formation process is unclear, so it has not yet been certified as an official mineral species. The name Shungite is not a mineral name, but a distribution name that bears the name of the place of origin.
The secret is C60 fullerene of Shungite:
There is no doubt that the secret behind what Shungite calls the “healing stone” and “miracle stone” lies in fullerenes.
Shungite is the only stone on the planet that contains natural fullerenes.
Recently, there are anti-aging beauty essences and creams that have been labeled as “fullerene-containing” and “fullerene cosmetics,” so if you’re a woman, you may have heard of them once.
Fullerenes have the effect of adsorbing a large amount of active oxygen (free radicals) at one time, eliminating and detoxifying them. Antioxidant capacity is 172 times that of vitamin C. Therefore, it is said to be highly effective in preventing skin aging.
So what exactly is a fullerene?
Fullerenes are simply aggregates of carbon atoms that have a very small soccer ball-like structure. 60 carbons are gathered to form a basket-like shape with an empty inside. Due to the number of carbons, it is also described as C60 fullerene.
Fullerenes have a chemically stable atomic structure and rotate at high speed at room temperature.
Diamond is also an aggregate of carbon, but it does not have such a ball-shaped structure.
This ball-shaped structure is the key, and it adsorbs active oxygen inside, detoxifies it, and then releases it.
Other antioxidants, such as vitamin C, astaxanthin, and coenzyme Q10, are non-persistent and destroyed under UV light because they are oxidized by themselves. However, fullerenes do not break even under ultraviolet rays and are stable.
Due to these special properties, it has been found that fullerenes can be used in various fields such as medical treatment and beauty, and are being applied to products. In addition to the beauty fields mentioned above, research is proceeding in the fields of AIDS, cancer treatment, gene therapy, electronic components using solar power generation and superconductivity, and nanotechnology, and future applications are expected.
Fullerene was officially discovered in 1985, and the three chemists who discovered it won the Nobel Prize. Since then, research has progressed, and it has become possible to synthesize it artificially, and it has been applied to various products.
