“Shungite cures, rescues, purifies, heals, protects, normalizes, restores and even stimulates the growth. Amazing rock: it kills and devours anything that harms people and other living beings, and concentrates and restores all that is good. The scholars who have studied shungite in one voice declare, it is a miracle! ”
From the book by A. Doronina “Shungite – the stone-savior”
Scientists estimate the age of shungite to be almost 2 billion years. Though it is similar in appearance to coal, it is found in very ancient layers of the Earth’s crust that were formed when there were no life forms on the Earth.
Where did this strange rock come from? At that time there were no forests to form carbides such as coal. Experts claim there were only proto-bacteria living in an oxygen-free atmosphere. But suddenly huge deposits of this marvelous mineral seem to have appeared.
It is found in only one place in the world which is the Zazhoginskoye deposit near Lake Onega in the Shunga region of Karelia, North West of Russia.
Who gave them to mankind? Why? How? The answers to the first two questions are quite simple. Having foreseen the trap that man would be driven into by civilization’s “achievements,” God showed the way out. He made shungite to heal and rescue life on the earth. It is not in vain that some prophets point to the North as the place of rescue from environmental disasters.
The answer to the third question comes from science. There are at least three theories to explain shungite’s origin:
Primitive microscopic organisms existed in shallow bays of the ancient sea. Sea surf rich in these organic remains formed a material that produced shungite.
According to another rather exotic version, shungite is a part of a gigantic meteorite that brought a part of a decomposed planet called Phaeton to the Earth. Phaeton is believed to have had carbon-based life forms. The gigantic fragment brought them to earth and formed the shungite field in the area of impact.
Some researchers assert that the form and structure of shungite have volcanic features. The volcanic ejection of the shungite substance would have played the same role as the hypothetical Phaeton fragment.
Whichever of these theories may hold the truth, it cannot be disputed that shungite with its unique healing qualities and abundance of remarkable characteristics, is a mineral like nothing else on earth.
- SHUNGITE is a mineral described formally as natural Carbon Black.
- Chemical Formula: C; Hardness: 3.5-4; Density: 1.8-2.0
Shungite is an amorphous variety of graphite of intense black color, which outwardly resembles anthracite. Shungite is unique in its composition, structure, and properties. It is a natural composite with a homogeneous distribution of crystalline silicate particles in a carbon matrix. *Fullerenes have been discovered in this rock.
