Fullerenes in shungite
The rock deposit found in Russia (shungite) is the only known natural source of fullerenes on Earth (with the exception of a few meteorites). The rock has been studied extensively by Russian scientists, but only within the last few years has information regarding shungite reached the Western world. According to Russian and Ukrainian research, fullerene-rich shungite has the ability to neutralize numerous forms of negative energy. It attenuates electromagnetic emissions essentially providing protection from electromagnetic fields. Shungite has been successfully used for many years in Russia to assist patients with depression, trauma, and other emotional and psychological disturbances. Special shungite chambers have been constructed for this purpose.
Shungite for water
When placed in water, fullerenes in shungite attract and neutralize waterborne contaminants. Shungite has been used commercially in Russia as a water purification media since the 1990s. Among the list of contaminants it will remove are: bacteria (and other microbes), nitrates, heavy metals, pesticides, volatile organics, pharmaceuticals, chlorine, and fluoride (however, as with other forms of carbon filtration, it is not recommended for the removal of fluoride because it becomes burdened so rapidly). Its ability to enhance water goes far beyond filtration as demonstrated by the water from lake Onega near the shungite deposit in Russia. Water from the lake can be used today for drinking without any prior treatment—the result of thousands of years of interaction with shungite. One of the reasons shungite has the ability to neutralize contaminants is because the fullerenes within its composition can hold a tremendous amount of hydrogen. The stone has been documented to have a high oxidative/reductive capacity. Shungite water is known for its antioxidant effects.
Shungite is one of Mother Earth’s finest gifts for cleansing the environment. It works equally well for cleansing the human body. When water made with shungite is consumed, it balances and gently cleanses. Research indicates there is a decrease in the histamine in the bloodstream of those who drink shungite water—and a corresponding decrease in allergies. Shungite water also improves the elasticity of the skin and many skin problems. The water has been used externally for burns, rashes, insect bites, and small wounds. It has also been used internally for a long list of maladies. The authors of Dancing with Water believe many of these physical effects are due to the hydrogen in the water. Emotional and psychological effects may be due to codes carried in the crystalline matrix of the fullerene-rich stone. Shungite interacts with the structure of water (via epitaxy – explained in chapter 8 of Dancing with Water ) creating fullerene-like cages within the molecular water matrix. Codes for balance and harmony (the purpose of shungite on the Earth) are released and carried within the newly developed structure of the water. The authors of Dancing with Water recommend shungite be used to “polish” already filtered and structured water. Using it to filter water may not be an efficient use of its potential.
