Karjala schungites rest in the most ancient part of the earth crust, the age of which is over 2 billion years, i.e. from the period when the earth had no organic life in the contemporary meaning. The actual origin of schungites is unknown up to now. According to one hypothesis schungites are the remains of planet Faeton, having existed in our solar system. The high content of fullerenes in them enables to guess their cosmic origin. The similar extraterrestrial fullerenes have been found in meteorites. The fact that the Nobel Prize was awarded to the group of English scientists in 1996 indicates the importance of discovering of fullerenes.
Today the use of artificially synthesized fullerenes is limited due to the especially high cost, thus these are mainly used in the sectors of high technology: in space, medicine, computers.
The discovery of natural fullerenes in Karjala schungite turned out to be a real sensation. This is the only deposit in the world.
For the time being fullerenes have been found among natural minerals only in schungite and by this the impact of the rock in mitigating several diseases and preservation of freshness of the body is explained.
It occurred that water acquires the healing effect in contact with schungite. Schungite structures this, by forwarding its electroinformational matrix. This helps all biological structures of the body to function without damaging the healthy cells. Fullerene appeared to be more powerful and sluggish antioxidant.
Schungite water has an impact of different levels on the body. This has a painkilling and antiphlogistic impact. Its bacterial properties are unique, the permanent antihistamine impact exists. Thanks to its medicated properties schungite water helps in case of the most varied inflammation diseases, allergies, viral, skin, joint and metabolism diseases. It helps to restore the immune and energetic status in case of chronic tiredness syndrome. It has been proven that the fullerenes hinder the incurrence and development of arteriosclerosis. Another interesting fact – schungite water helps in case of hangover.
Schungite water has a rejuvenating impact. Daily washing increases the skin elasticity and tonicity, exempts from small bruises, scales and swelling. Schungite’s fullerenes restore the composition of skin and accelerate the regeneration process of tissues.
The rinsing with schungite water strengthens the hair roots, hinders balding and fall-out of hair, gives them shine and silkiness.
Schungite is a universal sorbent. Schungite has no competitors as regards the ability to clean water of hazardous additives. This absorbs 95% of the pollution on its surface, removes turbidity and gives a taste of spring to water. Schungite removes heavy metals, colloidal iron of water tubes, nitrates and nitrites, pesticides, dioxins, phenols, chloral-organic compounds, oil products, radionuclides, viruses and bacteria from water. At the same time the body is saturated with useful micro and macro elements, by absorbing the hazardous ones.Schungite water is used with high efficiency for rinsing the throat, mouth and nose (in case of angina, parodonthosis and rhinitis).
The magical properties of schungite were well known in Russia already long ago, only this was not called schungite, but shale. The Boyar Ksenia ivanova Romanova was sent to Zaonezhski by Boriss Godunov where she had to die, but upon the recommendation of the local peasants she started to drink from the magical spring and bathe therein, after which she not only healed, but gave birth to the future tsar in 1596 – Mihhail Feodorovitsh, the founder of Romanov dynasty.
Peter the First who suffered from kidney stone disease and dyspepsia, tested the major power of shale on himself and gave an order to give a stone to every soldier. The battle of Poltava was won by the Russian army partly thanks to this stone. The summer of 1709 was droughty, water bodies dried out. The Swedish army, including the King Karl XII, suffered from enterocolitis and lost fast its combat shape. The Russian soldiers drank only the water having stood on shale upon the order of the tsar. Having survived, the Russian army defeated the Swedish.
Northern Russia, Karjala, Shunga settlement. Year 1887. Here this magical rock was named schungite.
