Today’s questions are all connected to a single topic: how does shungite work? So, without further ado, let’s get right into it.
That is, maybe, the most famous shungite property and the one it is mostly connected with, since shungite is used to filter water industrially. Well, we wouldn’t have called it unique if it wasn’t so, and here shungite is helped by its unique molecular structure. The molecules of carbon in shungite are organized in a way you will see pretty rarely. The shape of a molecule is familiar to a soccer ball and the molecule is called fullerene. Shungite actually helped to discover fullerenes and people who did it won the Nobel prize in chemistry in 1996 for that discovery.
Fullerenes have many peculiar properties, and one of their peculiarities is that they can act as a sponge. Thanks to that, shungite is able to filter most of toxins and bacteria from water, which is backed by a number of scientific studies conducted by the Russian Academy of Sciences here in Karelia. Shungite also possesses antioxidant and antihistamine capabilities which help a lot in purification process.
In large degree it is also all thanks to fullerenes. Thanks to this complex structure shungite is able to retract a huge chunk of electro-magnetic fields (EMF) and 5G radiation and protect you from it. Shungite is basically building an invisible wall around itself and shields everything in its coverage zone from the harmful influence of EMF. So it is better to have a shungite item on yourself when you are outside and a number of shungite products at home.
And note this: fullerenes are only the molecules of carbon, so more there is carbon in your shungite, the more effective it is. That is why we prefer to use elite shungite stones for EMF protection and it goes the same for water purification.
Aside from filtering out negative elements from water, shungite itself contains a lot of positive elements, such as calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and others, aside from carbon. And shungite isn’t shy to hold it inside – shungite is constantly enriching your water with healthy elements. As shungite is a stone of life, it gives life to everything around it, and our houseplants are not exception. Whether you water them with shungite water, hold shungite stones in flower pots or use them as a drainage – shungite will make sure that your plants get only the best.
The same goes for agriculture – shungite will be a great supplement for your garden and will provide health, growth and fertility for your plants. And it is not only thanks to its chemical composition – shungite is also a great heat accumulator, so if you will use shungite powder on your garden beds, they will retain warm through the night.
Well, a lot of it was said above, and two main things here are fullerenes and shungite chemical composition. That is where shungite gets most of its properties, including healing, nurturing and rejuvenating ones which are the most important when it comes to skin and hair care. Shungite will give your skin the best healing elements of nature and keep it fresh and clean.
