Schungite is a Precambrian rock, a metamorphosed coal, which is a transition phase from the anthracite to the graphite. Its color is black.
Nowadays, at these times hard for the whole world Schungite as a gift of fortune can help to preserve our health. Its curative properties are striking, and we believe that a more health-giving stone doesn’t exist on Earth. What a black color!
Schungite is unique. The deposits of it were discovered only in Karelia. It is the only rock in the world that contains fullerenes – a newly discovered form of the existence of carbon in the form of spherical ions. When interacting with water Schungite releases curative complexes of fullerenes into water. These complexes work like Martial waters which heal skin diseases, wounds, burns, cure allergies, diabetes, stomatitis, parodontosis, hair loss, cosmetic defects…
The importance of the fullerenes discovery can be proved by the fact that on October 09th, 1996 the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences decided to award the Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Professor Robert F. Curl Jr., Professor Sir Harold W. Kroto and Professor Richard E. Smalley for the discovery of fullerenes.
Viewing the black schungite products also gives aesthetic pleasure, but this is not the most important property thereof. The most important is the powerful influence on a human body. Nowadays about two million people use schungite filters, medicines and products. Besides, schungite is a “consoling” stone, a stone that takes away negative energy. Its comprehension is just beginning. Many healers in our country and in the East acknowledge the healing power of schungite. There is an opinion that in lithotherapy only those stones can be used the properties of which have been tested throughout centuries. Schungite is the best example of the fact that not all the stones have been discovered and studied.
Thanks to good luck and the genius of Peter the Great the first Karelia spa “Martial waters” (near Petrozavodsk) was opened on a schungite deposit, and for 300 years many generations of Karelia have been treated by schungite water, unaware of the fullerenes and fullerites that were discovered only recently. Treatment of many diseases by the waters of this resort, absence of any harmful effects or limitations allow to affirm that the use of schungite in filters for drinking water and as part of different medicines is absolutely harmless and maximally beneficial. Such conclusion has been made by researchers and confirmed by the authoritative opinions of the representatives of the Saint-Petersburg Military Medical Academy where the curative properties of all the schungite products and medicines have been carefully tested and studied.
The study of the effect of schungite on electromagnetic fields showed that it can be used as a certain protection against electromagnetic fields of cell phones, TV-sets, monitors and the so-called geopathogenic zones.
The history of schungite
About ten years ago people made gravel of an unattractive-looking ashy-black rock. That was the only industrial use of schungite. Later the specialists began to pay more attention to this unusual rock. After staying under the ground for many hundred million years it has become neither graphite nor diamond. In general the curative properties of schungite have been known for a long time. But as is often the case, everything old is new again.
“For the Lord by His Grace deigned to reveal here such a healing water (that hadn’t been known before) which has not only healed the sick, but also has been useful for Ourselves with Our family and many notable persons, … more than the other waters We used”, - these words are written in the fifth volume of “The Complete Collection of the Laws of the Karelia Empire since 1649”.
The secret of origin
Scientists estimate that the age of schungite is about two milliard years. Externally the rock resembles coal, but it occurs in the very old layers of earth crust that formed at the time when there was no life on Earth.
So, how did this strange rock occur?
Well, at that time there were no woods on our planet from which carbon compounds (stones, coal etc.) could occur. And suddenly there are huge deposits of wonderful minerals… Who has presented it to people? Why? How?
The first two questions can be answered quite easily. God foresaw the trap people would catch themselves in by means of civilization “achievements” and showed the way out. He created schungite for healing and saving the life on Earth. No wonder that many prophets point out to the North considering it to be the place where one can be saved from ecological disasters. The North, Karelia is the only schungite deposit in the world.
To answer the third question we should turn to scientists. There are several theories that explain the origin of schungite.
First of all, there is an assumption that the shallow bays of the ancient sea were inhabited by some primitive microscopic organisms. Marine deposits saturated with these organic residues served as a basic material for schungite formation.
According to another version a rather exotic schungite is a part of a huge meteorite that brought to Earth a piece of a broken planet Phaeton (a planet where there was once an oxygen life form). The huge piece brought along this form of life, and a schungite deposit occurred at the place where it fell.
Some researchers assert that the shape and structure of schungite bodies have features and characteristics of igneous substances. Maybe the volcanic outburst of a schungite substance into the atmosphere played the same role as a hypothetical piece of Phaeton planet.
Well, be that as it may, there occurred a mineral that has no analogues – both in its healing properties and in the variety of qualities. Schungite heals, saves, purifies, protects, normalizes, restores and even grows! (Yes, the famous Karelian black soil at the Tolvuysky farm is nothing else but schungite screes. In rather massive stones the largest potatoes of the North grow).
