There are a great number of ferruginous springs in Russia, but the healing properties of the marcial waters of Karelia are much stronger. Is it not because the healing water passes through this strange black shungite healing stone?

The name he gave the reason is very prosaic: there was the village of Shunga. And the black stone was really strange. In its chemical composition it contained almost the entire Periodic table of Mendeleev. In addition, this rare stone is the only carrier of natural unique particles in the world – fullerenes.

How old is Shungite

Studies have shown that it lies on the most ancient layers of the earth’s crust (as, indeed, the entire Kola Peninsula), its age is about 2 billion years. At that time there was nothing alive on Earth, there were no forests from which coal or any other carbon compounds could be formed. Looking ahead, it should be noted that shungite is a carbonaceous compound. It was also surprising that the shungite Deposit in the area of Marcial waters is the only one on the globe!

Where did the rare stone come from?

There are several answers to this question – from the prosaic (shungite – the result of the primitive microorganisms of the ancient seas) to the exotic (shungite – an ancient meteorite that arrived on Earth from the asteroid belt located between Mars and Jupiter).

Does shungite have healing properties?

Seven years after it became known about the fullerenes, Semyon Tsipoursky, a former Soviet scientist now working at the University of Arizona in the United States, found that the samples of shungite, which he brought to the memory of the Marcial waters, there is fullerene. It is thanks to him that water, passing through the shungite rocks, acquires healing properties. You can learn more about the unusual properties of this rare stone in this article.

It was happened after she bathing in a source which water was insisted on a black stone. It was Mikhail Fedorovich who laid the Foundation of the dynasty ruling Imperial Russia more than 300 years.

Healing Water of Black Stone

No one remembered this source for a long time. Perhaps this source would have been lost. But it wasn’t meant to be. Because, in 1707 tsar Petr 1 founded nearby copper smelter, and seven years later this source was once again “discovered” the working of this plant Ivan Reboev, whose aching heart. The healing water helped. It was accidentally learned by king Peter and ordered the court physician Blumentrost and surgeon Ravelin to investigate this source and report on the results.

Because the cost of treatment is extremely high in this place.

Official scientific research of Shungite healing stone in the modern world


The progress of mankind does not stand still. Much time has passed since tsarist Russia and the reign of Peter the great. Humanity can look deeper into the depths of chemical, physical and biological processes. Every day there are any scientific discoveries or research in various fields of science. Rare Karelian stone Shungite was no exception. Moreover, every year there is more evidence of healing and other amazing abilities of this extremely rare mineral. For example, after research and scientific experiments, shungite has become an officially recommended natural remedy for human treatment.

Positive dynamics is noted in the prevention and treatment of human respiratory organs, bone and joint therapy, digestive organs. In addition, the use of pastes based on shungite powder has found wide application in the field of various skin diseases. This amazing mineral is also well established in the complex treatment of human, as an auxiliary component in the main therapy. This rare, black stone of Karelia is increasingly used in medical institutions of Russia, as a material for finishing medical facilities.

As follows from the official reports of various medical institutions, treatment in such premises gives a great preventive and therapeutic effect. This increases the efficiency and quality of treatment of cardiac patients, stabilizes vascular functions. In addition, it relieves stress and stressful reactions of the body and activates the immune defense.

“White Keys” Russian health resort

The treatment of the person with use of schungite


One of the many official scientific evidence is the results of the famous Russian health resort – White Keys. This resort is less well-known resort – Marcial waters, but it also uses shungite healing stone for comprehensive health care. Since 2001, this health center has been implementing treatment technologies based on this healing mineral. for the treatment and prevention of the people here start to apply a concentrated solution of water shungite as a means for the rinsing, that has undergone pit storing and inhalation to the respiratory system. Suspensions made of shungite powder, as well as mixtures for the preparation of mineralized baths, are beginning to be used.

Result of treatment

The following data were obtained at the entrance of observation and fixation of treatment results. After external application of suspensions made from the powder of this mineral, patients significantly increased joint mobility. Inflammation and swelling of the skin were significantly reduced after three procedures. Also, there is a positive dynamics in the localization of chronic inflammation of the nasopharynx. After three sessions of inhalation with the infusion of shungite, the exacerbation of this disease receded. Patients suffering from high blood pressure, noted a significant improvement in their condition after 6 procedures with the use of shungite black stone bath. Medical examination of these patients confirmed the normalization of their blood pressure to the generally accepted norm.

Many researchers in this area note the fact that the ability of shungite healing stone is largely determined by the presence of Fullerenes in its composition.

Studies of Fullerenes

In Russia and other countries of our world dozens of scientific groups in 10 cities are working on fullerene. For example, at Moscow state University, Institute of immunology, Institute of chemical physics in Chernogolovka and others. One of the leaders in the study of the unusual properties of fullerenes, who offered a unique, unparalleled in the world development of this topic, was Grigory Vladimirovich Andrievsky. He is a senior researcher At the Institute of therapy of AMS of Ukraine in Kharkiv.

Effect of fullerenes in medicine

Fullerene is not toxic, does not suppress healthy cells, but rather helps to work all biological structures of the body. Then the natural fairy tale begins. Fullerene was the most powerful and long-acting antioxidant. Due to this, the drugs created on the basis of fullerene help to treat a variety of inflammatory, viral, allergic and other diseases. For example: asthma, influenza, infertility, burns, ulcers, which are often difficult to standard therapy. Above all, recently in experiments on animals it was found that fullerene is able to prevent the occurrence and inhibits the development of atherosclerosis.


In conclusion, we would like to note that shungite is a natural source of fullerenes. In today’s world, these molecular particles are becoming increasingly popular in the way of human health. Thus, it makes shungite healing stone is interesting and multifaceted for research. As we see it, they can beautifully intertwine the most modern problems of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine. In addition, the origin of life on Earth. Learn more about this amazing and healing mineral of Karelia in our section – What is Shungite.
