Shungite is a very rare and powerful stone, almost 2 billion years in age. It is almost 100% made out of the carbon atom and can only be found in one place - a deposit near Shunga village, in Karelia, Russia.
It has been used to purify Russia’s water for centuries. It is supposedly one of the only known natural sources of Fullerenes on Earth. Fullerenes are what makes this unique crystal so special and gives it its healing power.
Fullerenes, a compound containing 60 carbon atoms shaped like a soccer ball shaped hollow cage, also known as buckyballs are carbon molecules that make up many different shapes including tubes, ellipsoids, spheres and icosahedra - which are 20 sided shapes.
These fundamental shapes are what make up these atoms themselves, and everything in our universe. Not not properties of these shapes but the actual shapes themselves are the tiny structures of geometry that make up the fabric of reality itself.
Fullerene C60 contains a high amount of carbon and because of it’s modulation of oxidative stress, anti-angiogenesis, and immuno-stimulatory activity, it contains possible anti-tumor effects.
Because of it’s properties, make up and shape, fullerenes can enter the body and be absorbed by HeLa cells. With the combination of using light radiation and fullerenes, this creates enough oxygen that damages the DNA, proteins and lipids which make up the structure of the cancer cell.
Enough cellular damage will force the cancerous cells to go though apoptosis, which is the process of a cell death. Ultimately, this reduces the size of tumors and can essentially eradicate the cancer from your body.
Fullerene C60 also has anti-inflammatory effects which ”shifts immune response from Th2 to Th1 and restores to some extent the function of the skin barrier. This approach can be a good alternative to the treatment of allergic and other inflammatory diseases
Therefore, it is the one stone that everyone should have in their medicine bag, because of its ability to purify, charge, protect, cure, induce recovery, stabilize, heal and promote growth to all living organisms. It also purifies water of almost of all organic compounds (including pesticides), metals, bacteria and harmful micro-organisms.
Shungite is a stone with a strong connection to the Earth, which makes it a good aid for grounding. However, it not only opens and stimulates the Base Chakra, but it, also, triggers the opening and stimulation of the Earth Chakra. Therefore, it is not only a good grounding stone, but also is a strong aid for spiritual grounding.
Shungite has a strong mystical energy. It will help anyone involved with magical and mystical practices. It’s deep primordial energy embodies energies of ancient spirits, which come into play in a protective role during magical work. Shugnite a great protector, a guardian and a body guard. It infuses the auric field with light, which shields the holder with a coat of black permitting only positive and beneficial rays to come through.
Shungite will often come across as a stern and disciplined teacher, ready to impart its sacred wisdom with those committed to a higher path of evolving. As its frequency can and will align to those who begin to embrace and “wear” a vibratory signature that meets the future with love and light. There is responsibility when working with the energies of Shungite. Its energy source should taken lightly or by the faint of heart. The “ancient of ways” seems to echo through from the Shungite gemstone; Older Souls will be able to “hear” this inner language coming through.
It is very pragmatic and fills one with this energy as well. It is a stone full of potential and possibilities, as it can and will propel one along his/her path, keeping one focused, grounded and centered at all time.
