Shungites (from the name of the village Shunga) is a Precambrian rock saturated with carbonaceous (shungite substance) material in a non-crystalline state. With metamorphism, they turn into graphite, cryptocrystalline graphite. Unstratified (migrated) anthraxolite contains up to 99% carbon and occurs in the form of stratified and oblique veins, nests and tonsils.

Fullerenes in shungite stones from Karelia

Molecule of Fullerene c60

The shungite with fullerenes are a real rare mineral of Precambrian age. The fullerene shungite was found only in one place on Earth, this is the Republic of Karelia in Russia. As a result of shungite studies, fullerenes in shungite stone c60 were discovered in 1992 by scientists from the University of Arizona, USA.

Scientists associate the presence of fullerenes in shungite with the special structure of shungite. The fact is that shungite is shungite carbon of a special allotropic form. In turn, this means that fullerenes, fullerites, and other nanoparticles can originate and exist in it.

Shungite in water benefits

Shungite wonderfully purification water. It disinfects it. Above all it kills E. coli, Vibrio cholerae, neutralizes heavy metal impurities, ammonia. In addition, shungite have ability to neutralizes nitrates, organochlorine compounds formed from chlorine and organic impurities when boiling tap water. Infusion of water on shungite forms a water-mineral solution. That has unique healing qualities, in fact it is a ready-made medicine created by nature itself. Without any chemistry, without any human intervention. It is similar in composition to enzymes and hemoglobin. You can learn more about this rare mineral. In this article, we have tried to fully describe what shungite stone is.
