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 protobacteria living in an oxygen-free atmosphere. But suddenly huge deposits of this marvellous mineral seem to have appeared.
Who gave them to the man? 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. Karelia, in the north of Russia is known to have the only shungite filed in the world.
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 scurf 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.

Why Buy Shungite?
The Karelia region of Russia is the only place in the world where shungite can be found. This leads many to believe that shungite will some day cost more than gold.
It is a mineral with healing power and properties to which nothing else in the world can be compared. Shungite cures, purifies, protects, normalizes, induces recovery and promotes growth in living organisms. Everything which takes a toll on us, is killed; and everything health-giving is concentrated and restored by this miracle rock. Every scientist investigating shungite, declares it to be miraculous.
UNIQUE IN COMPOSITION
Shungite is the only natural material that contains fullerenes. The importance of this discovery is highlighted by the fact that the three scientists who discovered fullerenes were awarded the Nobel Prize.

Chemical Composition & Properties
Found only in the northern Russian district of Karelia, Shungite was formed about 2 billion years ago. Shungite is composed of nearly all the elements of the Periodic Table. Though it is commonly known that not all chemical elements are beneficial to life forms, a surprising feature of this mineral is that only its health-giving components are absorbed by water. Moreover, experts have reason to believe that water contained in shungite deposits gave birth to life, because its natural structures and complexes are so similar to those of a living cell.
Shungite absorbs and eliminates everything that imposes a hazard to life, but concentrates and restores all that is beneficial. Scientists who have investigated this phenomenon have unanimously declared it a miracle.
Shungite is the only Mineral that Contains Fullerenes. Only recently discovered, fullerenes were among the scientific sensations of the 20th century. Named after the great architect, Buckminster Fuller, this closed, hollow cage of 60 or more carbon atoms that form a fullerene molecule, resembles the geodesic domes popularized in his work. The shape of the fullerene molecule is similar to that of a soccer ball. Fullerenes are found in very minute quantities in nature, usually formed by lightening charges. How they came to be present in the shungite mineral remains a mystery. Realizing their full potential will be one of the great sensations of the 21st century
