Shungite stone has so many unique properties and benefits that it is sometimes hard to grasp them. Shungite is used in many fields, such as water filtration, EMF protection, physical and spiritual healing, and even gardening.
Here is our easy comprehensive guide to shungite properties.
Shungite consists mainly of carbon, which has a unique spherical structure called fullerenes. None other mineral has the same structure. Thanks to fullerene structure, shungite is immensely effective for water filtering. Fullerenes absorb up to 98% of contaminants from the tap water, including heavy metals and pathogenic bacteria. Shungite also balances the pH level of water, so shungite water is completely safe to drink.
Shungite does not lose its filtering properties for a long time, unlike coal, so it can be used repeatedly.
Another major advantage of shungite water is that it is very easy to make. Here is our small step-by-step guide:
- Take 50-70 grams of elite shungite stones or 100-150 grams of regular shungite stones per 1 liter of water.
- Put shungite stones in a glass jar or any other water item you use, pour water into the jar and leave it for 24-48 hours.
- Drink the shungite water fresh as many times a day as you like.
Being a powerful mineral, shungite mineralizes the water, filling it with fullerenes and energizing it. By drinking shungite water, you will strengthen your immune and digestive system, detox your body and protect it from harmful substances contained in regular tap water.
We all use electronic devices on a daily basis. We are always on the phone, we watch TV, and use computers because they make our lives more convenient. But many of us do not know that all these devices stream invisible harmful waves called electromagnetic radiation, which creates electromagnetic fields or EMF. The modern 5G technology also emits harmful waves, which are called millimeter waves or MMW, which is even more damaging than EMF.
EMF causes mood swings, headaches, weakened immune system, sleep disorders and even eyesight problems.
There is also another kind of electromagnetic radiation: the electromagnetic field of the Earth is imbalanced in some places, which causes geopathic stress. Such zones are especially dangerous for children because they are extra sensitive to harmful radiation.
Scientists have proved that shungite naturally shields us from EMF, it neutralizes up to 90% of the harmful electromagnetic waves around. Using shungite products, such as pyramids, phone plates, jewelry, you will shield yourself, your family and your close ones from this danger.
