The only place in the world where Shungite can be found is in the region of Karelia, Russia. This leads many to believe that Shungite will someday cost more than gold. This gemstone was formed about 2 billion years ago. Its 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 gemstone is that only its health-giving components are absorbed by water which allows you to use Shungite to filter, clean & purify water.
Shungite can be used as a natural filter to purify your water. This natural water purifier can clean water from almost of all organic compounds, metals, bacteria and harmful microorganisms. A good example of water purification by Shungite is the water from lake Onega in Russia. Since this lake has been in contact with shungite for thousands of years, its water can be used for drinking without any water filtering.
