********SHUNGITE BEADS**************

Our ancestors introduced a culture of wearing various ornaments. But initially various minerals were used as amulets due to their energy and origin.

Shungite has a huge amount of healing and protective properties, many of which are simply unique among other minerals. Thanks to carbon molecules in the form of fullerenes peculiar only to shungite, the stone is able to protect from negative radiation and environmental influences, to structure and purify water improving its taste qualities. Wearing shungite adornment helps to protect you from all harmful influences and helps to harmonize vitality balance.

Thanks to all these amazing properties, shungite is used as a protective and curative amulet. Constant wearing of shungite in form of an ornament will give you peace of mind, raise general vitality and mood. Shungite is the most effective when constantly contacts body.

**********************ABOUT SHUNGITE******************************

Usually we extract body useful substances from plant or animal origin products. Meanwhile, objects of inanimate nature sometimes have just amazing curative properties. Shungite is one of the most brilliant proofs of this.

Abstract of the article:

- What is schungite;

- Schungite as a natural water filter;

- How to distinguish the original from a fake;

- How to make shungite water;

- How and how long you can serve shungite water at home;

- Application: folk recipes (washing, compresses, baths, foot massage);

- Contraindications and harm.

********WHAT IS SHUNGITE?******************
For those who hear this word for the first time, schungite is a mineral, 40-99% consisting of carbon (the percentage of carbon depends on the type of shungite). Outwardly it is very similar to anthracite (glance-coal). However, unlike this valuable coal type, shungite does not burn under normal conditions. For this reason this mineral for a long time has not been used for practical applications and has not been considered as great value mineral. Today in the whole world there is only one large shungite deposit known. It is located in Karelia (by the way, the stone bears the name of Shunga village, where its deposits were firstly discovered). In addition, in small quantities this fossil was also found in Kazakhstan and the North Caucasus.

Do you know this? Most scientists attribute schungite to organic origin mineral, assuming that it was formed from bottom settlings, plankton sediments, algae and one-celled, which for millions years were pressed, dehydrated and left underground. But this point of view is not indisputable, because, as its opponents argue, the rock is so ancient that by the time of its formation life did not exist on the Earth. Some scientists attribute shungite to volcanic origin, others even believe that the stone came to us from outer space (probably as a result of the meteorite fall).

Shungite (in Rus’ it was called "slate stone") is usually black, sometimes gray or brown. It is very easy to be splitted into parts. Saying that shungite does not burn would be wrong: for this process special conditions are needed. Dissolving in the combustion process slag envelops stone surface, and combustion without access to oxygen ceases. In this case, mineral has the property of inhibiting oxidative reactions; thanks to this shungite is an excellent antioxidant.

*************************SHUNGIT AS A NATURAL WATER FILTER*******

Useful properties of slate are used for preparation of shungite water. As is known, there are several types of water filters - mechanical, ion-exchange, biological, electrical, physical and chemical. In particular, action of the last is based on a process called "sorption." It is an ability of some solid materials (adsorbents) to absorb various liquid’s impurities. There are some more adsorbents: peat, ash, clay, sawdust, but the most popular among them is activated charcoal.

Notice! Shungite as an adsorbent is close to activated charcoal, and in respect of some harmful compounds exceeds it by dozens of times! This mineral is able to purify tap water from various health-hazardous impurities (salts of heavy metals, radionuclides, nitrates, pesticides, acids, alcohols, phenols, resins, acetone, humic compounds, oils, gases, etc.), foreign smells and unpleasant aftertaste of almost 95%.

After cleaning water with an aspidic stone it becomes clear and clean. Interesting that with the help of this adsorbent it is possible to filter out not only water for drinking. It is also used for pool contents disinfection, where there is a large number of pathogenic bacteria, fungi, helminth eggs and other organic stuff. With the same purpose mineral is sometimes just put into the wells. It is believed that shungite not only purifies water, but also structures it. Unlike "man-made" filters, natural sorption with help of aspidic stone does not remove from water useful minerals (salts of potassium, magnesium, calcium), and also gives it additional curative properties. As a result of such cleaning, we get not a "dead" (as after a hard chlorination), but a life-giving and very tasty water. This effect is achieved due to so-called fullerenes contained in shungite - special molecules consisting of 60 carbon atoms, closed in a single chain.

Purified shungite water has: antioxidant; restorative; wound-healing; rejuvenating; bactericidal; antihistamine (antiallergic) and many other useful properties. An undoubted advantage of schungite as a natural filter is ability to maintain its bactericidal, adsorptive and catalytic properties for a long time.

******HOW TO DISTINGUISH THE ORIGINAL FROM A FAKE*****

Shungite does not look very beautiful. So, often under guise of a valuable mineral, you can buy a piece of ordinary coal or, what even worse, just a stone of suitable color. There are several ways to verify the authenticity of aspidum stone. All of them can be divided into two groups: subjective (evaluate seller and terms of the transaction); objective (evaluate the product itself). Use both methods.

So, the mineral should be purchased from trusted suppliers and at a price not lower than average (cheap price - the first sign of forgery). Compare prices, read reviews, gather more information about company you are dealing with, and only after that make a purchase. Notice! Shungite seller can be registered anywhere, but manufacturer's address should be in Karelia, in this case probability of facing fraud is much less. Oddly enough, objective methods of schungite quality checking are much more complicated. The natural mineral almost does not shine and has a rough surface. Due to its high frangibility, it is impossible to polish it; so, a smooth and sparkling in the sun stone is definitely not shungite. If you put an aspid stone in the water, nothing will happen to it, except small bubbles form on its surface. If it dissolves or crumbles - it is a fake. White streaks on the cut will testify in favor of this solid stone, although their presence is not obligatory.

Also a good sign is presence of even a small amount of coal dust in the package (the mineral is very fragile and easily rubbed off). A classic way to distinguish a fake from a true schungite is to check for electrical conductivity. Take a small bulb (9 volts), a normal battery and connect them with a wire. Two more wiring are to be connected, respectively, to a light bulb and a battery, and loose ends are applied to shungite. The light bulb should light up. Notice! In fact, test for electrical conductivity makes it possible to distinguish schungite from other minerals, but it does not confirm curative properties of the stone. The fact is that high electrical conductivity indicates only that mineral contains a certain amount of carbon. However, in addition to carbon, shungite can contain various impurities ( if they are in water, give it not useful, but harmful properties). To get out of the situation, some sellers offer to "listen" to the stone: hold your hand over it and watch your sensations, try water in which the mineral was, apply it "to the sore spot" and wait for the effect, etc. Perhaps, for some such advice will seem useful, but, in our opinion, the curative properties of aspidum stone cannot be so bright and just "touched by hands". Therefore, it is best choice to use all of the above recommendations together.

*******HOW TO MAKE THE SHUNGIT WATER *******

How to make shungite water. It is very easy to prepare "live" shungite water. At glass or enamelware bottom (ware material should be neutral), put carefully washed up shungite of any size at a rate of 100 g per liter of water. After 30 minutes water will be cleared, but the whole complex of useful properties will be achieved in 72 hours. After due time, water should be drained carefully, or even better - removed from the sediment, using a soft tube. Remaining on the bottom shungite and the bottom layer of water, if possible, it is better not to "disturb". The water can be used for its intended purpose, and mineral can be washed and, if desired, filled with a new portion of water.

***** HOW AND HOW LONGYOU CANSERVE SHUNGITE WATER AT HOME********

Shungite water should be used within three days stored in the same houseware (preferably, in glass). For storage a cool room needed (refrigerator is not necessary, it can be room temperature), but there should not be electrical and other radiating devices nearby (mobile phones, tablets, etc.).

Notice! Shungite water can be boiled (for example, if you use it for cooking dishes and hot drinks), it does not lose its useful properties. Mineral itself is subject to reusable use, but approximately every six months it needs to be replaced with another, as well as conventional filters.

*******APPLICATION: FOLK RECIPES*****
Shungit water is widely used both in folk and in official medicine (mainly in sanatoriums and resorts). Interestingly, useful properties of liquid are viewed both in internal and external applications; in addition, it is used ащк ointments, and the stone itself is sometimes used in various massage procedures. Shungite water helps to treat joints, skin and stomach; it helps to heal wounds and remove burns, has a beneficial effect on gums and is indicated for treatment of diabetes mellitus.

Do you know? Many people believe that water infused on an aspidum stone neutralizes so-called geopathic zones - areas filled with "evil energy" and, therefore, have a harmful impact on all life, which is not explainable to science. Also unproven properties of schungite water are ability to protect a person from harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation.

***********WASHING-UP***********

So, you can drink shungite ‘hand-made’ water, you can cook on it (cooking, by the way, is preferable with shungite water, because whatever it is said about healing properties of purified water, in practice it is usually advised to boil it before use, like a paradox). But to wash-up with such water is absolutely safe and precisely more useful than with watertap. After such procedure skin becomes fresh, soft and gentle, fine wrinkles are smoothed out, and acne and other similar troubles pass. To improve the effect, it is recommended not to wipe face after washing and get it dry naturally.

By the way, in addition to washing shungite water be used in gaseous state by breathing over such a steam as with common inhalation. It is not necessary to use such a procedure as a treatment for a cold (children, by the way, do inhalations at home without direct doctor appointment is strictly not recommended, you can burn respiratory tract mucous membrane). Simply scroll for a moment, boil the water, let it cool down and steam your face covering head with a towel. Then, wipe face with ice slices made of the same shungite water, and breathe again over the steam. Repeat this alternation of contrasts several times, then put on your face your favorite nourishing cream and rest a little. You will be amazed how fresh and gentle your face will be with minimal time and money.

*********COMPRESSES****************

You can use cold compresses made of schungite water as an emergency aid for burns, calluses, bruises, skin inflammations, swelling, bruises, other trauma or different nature pain syndromes. One of the options for compress is wetting towel or gauze in aspidic water and applying it to a sore spot; another, more effective, is the use of frozen shungite water (chipped or portion frozen ice).

Notice! To use ice packs you need to know basic rules of cold and heat treatment, since these procedures have the opposite effect. For example, it is not cold, but heat must be applied to a sore spot: to prevent injury, to relax bound joints; at the later stages of injuries treatment (cold is applied in the first minutes, and the sooner, the better), with neck injuries, especially in front and at the sides. Neither warm nor ice can be applied to open wounds, with infection, with diabetes, with blood circulation problems! To prepare a compress, depending on its purpose, you can use not only cold, but also hot shungite water, except when treatment requires dry heat. Remember: if it's not about first aid, and cause of the pain is not clear, before applying a compress to painful place, in any case, you need to consult a doctor and establish an accurate diagnosis!

**********BATHS**********************

An excellent means of removing fatigue and lifting mood are shungit baths. This pleasant procedure allows healing liquid to contact skin, warming body and saturating it with useful minerals and good energy. And if you dive into such a bath with your head for a few seconds, you can also achieve a noticeable improvement in hair condition.

Type a hot bath (water temperature should be at least 45 degrees, because preparation takes some time, and water should cool enough to become comfortable). Put in it 0.3-0.5 kg of shungite stones, pre-wrapped in gauze, and leave at least for a quarter of an hour. When water is cooled to a suitable temperature, remove shungite and immerse in healing liquid. Time for such a bath in average should be 15-20 minutes, but always should be guided by your feelings. Notice! Even not a very hot bath can lead to additional stress on heart; in addition, there are still some situations when such a procedure should be treated with extreme caution (pregnancy, alcohol or drug intoxication, etc.). But without fanaticism a shungit bath is a wonderful way to recover quickly after a serious physical exertion or hypothermia.

********FOOT MASSAGE********

In this case, unlike previous ones, shungite is used in a "pure" form. It shoud be mentioned that foot massage, using stones, is an ancient invention of the Chinese. With it help in the Greater China headache, throat diseases, sexual dysfunction and many other ailments were healed.

Idea is that on foot there is a huge number of different nerve endings, each of which is somehow connected with organs or systems. Thus, by massaging a certain foot point, we influence a certain organ and give it "right" signal (setting). We already know that ancient Chinese did not know about shungite, for procedures they used other "useful" stones, in particular, marble, gypsum, jasper, volcanic basalt and ... coal shale. Today, stone therapy is a very fashionable trend in alternative medicine, and shungite is widely used in it. It is believed that procedures with the use of aspidic stone help to "stretch" pain, and since healing mineral has property of absorbing negative energy disease after procedure recedes.

Do you know? According to fundamental principles of oriental medicine some minerals carry male principle (yang), others - female (yin), the third ones are neutral. All opaque stones, including schungite, have a feminine origin. They are most preferable for therapeutic massage, since their touch to sore spot already takes away bad energy.

For foot massage small or medium stones are usually used, as well as shungite crumb (rubble). In the first case, patient is in a horizontal position; hot stones are placed between toes. In the second one, walking on small shungite gravel (as an option, you can sit with your feet on a stone crumb, but in this case procedure time for achieving the same effect increases from five minutes to two hours). Such therapy normalizes blood pressure, improves sleep and relieves fatigue, helps with headache, and also fills body and soul with peace and tranquility.

********CONTRAINDICATIONS AND HARM*******

In itself, an aspidum stone does not and even cannot have direct contraindications (although it is usually advised to refrain from shungite water for people prone to blood clots, with tumors, heart problems in acute phase and serious inflammatory process). Nevertheless, fanatical and illiterate treatment with non-traditional methods can be dangerous to health. In particular, the following can lead to unpleasant consequences: drinking of unproven tap water without its preliminary boiling; applying cold or hot compresses to a painful place without finding out cause of pain and violating basic rules of care in such conditions; taking a hot bath in the presence of contraindications and without observing precautionary rules; self-medication having disease requiring urgent medical intervention. Shungite is an amazing mineral properties of which were discovered relatively recently. Purification of water with help of this stone is a scientific fact; concerning structuring and absorption of negative energy, you can believe in it or not. In any case, it is important to understand: shungit water can make your skin tender and overall well-being better, but it will not replace official medicine, either in terms of diagnosis or in terms of treatment. Gifts of nature should be used carefully and with the mind, only then they will go for good!

FAQs

The authenticity of shungite pieces can be proved with a simple test: you can take a battery, bulb and two wires and make streamline of electricity coming from battery to bulb with one of the wires being connected to battery and another to bulb with a shungite stone between them. If shungite is authentic you will see that the shungite conducts electricity and bulb lightens due to the high carbon content in shungite.

There are variations made in the listings that can be customized according to your preferences, but if you want something special that is not in variations or want to customize the size of jewelry, please, contact us.

Shungite stones can be divided into three types depending on the content of carbon in it. Type III and type II shungite is usually called regular shungite stone and they contain from 30 to 50 per cent of carbon and from 50 to 90 per cent of carbon respectively. All the shaped products on the market like pyramids, spheres, bracelets, etc. are made of regular shungite since it amounts for the major part of shungite found in Karelia and can be easily shaped and polished. Type I shungite is called noble or elite shungite and it contains from 90 to 98 per cent of organic carbon in it. Elite shungite nuggets have shiny silvery surfaces and have a high energetic potential due to the high percentage of carbon.

There are 3 types of shungite: Regular shungite - the ammount of carbone is about 30% Petrovsky shungite - the ammount of carbone is about 68% Elite shungite - the ammount of carbone is about 98% The more carbone inside the more powerful healing properties the stone has. Moreover Petrovsky and Elite shungite are carved only by hands and they save total earth energy!

To avoid such unpleasant effect just wash a shungite product in warm water with soap. Soap forms a cover protecting you from black residue. This does not affect the properties of shungite.

Shungite is a Precambrian carbonaceous natural mineral of organic origin that can be found in its raw form only in the Zazhoginsky deposit, the Republic of Karelia, the Russian Federation.

Shungite has a unique structure consisting of fullerenes, which is a crystalline modification of carbon. Fullerenes are considered as one of the most powerful antioxidants that protects cells of a human body from the damaging effects of free radicals and spherical fullerene molecules contained in the shungite carbon make it extremely useful for a person using shungite.
