Shungite’s shielding power arises from its unique formation. A rare, noncrystalline carbon mineral, it is composed of hollow fullerenes called “Buckyballs” and contains virtually all the minerals in the periodic table. It may have been instrumental in creating life on this planet. Fullerenes empower nanotechnology, being excellent geothermal and electromagnetic conductors, and yet shield from EMF emissions. Scientists around the world are investigating this mineral’s full potential.

This mysterious stone is found in one small area of northern Russia: Karelia. Carbonbased minerals normally arise from decayed organic matter, such as ancient forests, yet Shungite is at least two billion years old, a period before organic life was established. One theory suggests an enormous meteorite hit the Earth and seeded Shungite into the crater in which Lake Onega later formed. Another says microorganisms were already swimming in a soupy sea, and the seabed formed the Shungite deposit. Although the lake is highly polluted, its water is purified by the Shungite bed—and the water has been used in a healing spa for hundreds of years.


Shungite-infused water is traditionally drunk two or three times a day to eliminate free radicals and pollutants. According to anecdotal evidence, it acts as an antibacterial and antiviral, preventing or lessening common cold symptoms. The water also heals sore throats, burns, cardiovascular diseases, blood disorders, allergies, asthma, gastric disturbances, diabetes, arthritis and osteoarthritis, kidney and liver disorders, gallbladder dysfunction, auto-immune diseases, pancreatic disorders, impotence, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Place a Shungite pyramid by the bed to counteract insomnia and headache and eliminate the physiological effects of stress.


Shungite works at a deep physical level to restore balance to the body—or purity to water. It transforms water into a biologically active substance while simultaneously removing harmful microorganisms and pollutants. Shungite absorbs that which is hazardous to health: pesticides, free radicals, bacteria, viruses, EMF, Wi-Fi, microwaves, and other emissions. It boosts everything that is beneficial for physical well-being, turning water into a life-enhancing essence that powerfully supports the immune system. Shungite also restores emotional equilibrium and transforms stress into a potent energetic recharge. (Note: Shungite is a rapid absorber of negative energy and pollutants, so clean it frequently and place it in the sun to recharge. Immerse it in water for at least forty-eight hours to activate the water.)



Wear Shungite or place it on the source of electromagnetic frequency emissions, such as computers and cell phones, to eliminate their detrimental effects.
