Shungite is a unique mineral with plenty of useful properties. On the Earth there is one major place where shungite can be found - Karelia.
Porous Zazhoginsky shungite (with carbon content up to 30%, rich mineral structure, with a lot of fullerenes and extremely high energy potential) can absorb hazardous substances. Mineral is black, bearing which your hands are getting dirty as a coal. But after polishing shungite silver or golden color "streaks" appear on the surface.
Also some shungite rocks can be found even in some areas of the North Caucasus and Kazakhstan.
Composition of shungite mineral from different areas is diverse. It depends on carbon content, structure and amount of fullerenes and some mineral's properties. Thus, all shungite stones are different. Shungite with healing properties is produced in only one area - Zazhoginsky, the Republic of Karelia. Other types of the stone have much lower quality. Even color is grey but not as dark as real black shungite. Carbon content is lower (about 5%), in a mineral there are almost no fullerenes. Such type of shungite does not purify water due to having no energy properties.
Items and goods from Karelian shungita neutralize hazardous electromagnetic radiation (rays) and increase negative impact on the human body creating geopathic zones. Shungite mineral is electroconductive, adsorbtion active and has an antibactericidal effect.
