History/Mythology: The only known source of Shungite is from the Shunga area in the Karelia region of northern Russia. This stone has been know and used by the people of this region for a long time, and the first recorded use was by Czar Peter how traveled to the region to use the water. The exact origin of the stone is unknown as it is 2 billion years old, it has been theorized that it came to the area on a meteorite or was the stone that was formed as an ancient sea evaporated and ended as land…… no one knows how they just know how useful it is in healing.
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 and the researcher received a Noble Prize for his work. 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.
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 grounds spiritual energy to bring it into the Earth plane existence.

It is said to be protection against the evil eye and negative energies.
“Shungite cures, rescues, purifies, heals, protects, normalizes, restores and even stimulates the growth. Amazing rock: 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! “
From the book by A. Doronina “Shungite – the stone-savior”
