What many don't know
is that my first degree was in geology - so it's really no surprise
that the healing powers of crystals have captured my heart and soul.
Even with this extensive background in science, experience has
taught me that science has its limitations and other bodies of
wisdom should not be so quickly discarded.
Science - or what we
Westerners generally consider "legitimate science" - often lags behind
the wisdom of the ancients, and I have seen many well-meaning
scientists blinded by their biases.
We live in a sea of radiation and it's getting worse:

Research is mounting about the potential health risks of our
long-term exposure to this unnatural radiation.
We are electrical beings. Everything in the natural world produces
an electromagnetic field, from animals to humans to the earth

biophotons - weak electromagnetic fields that help them communicate
with one another.

Shungite has some impressive research behind it. Truth be
told, I am a fan, but the data needs to be put in perspective.
Before I get into shungite, I'll bring you up to speed on the latest
science about the risks of EMFs.
Why You Should Be Concerned About EMFs
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences defines EMFs
"invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, that
are associated with the use of electrical power."
A wide range of
electronic devices emit EMFs including,
...and other wireless
Cell phones... can't live with 'm, can't live without 'm. Although
many continue to poo-poo the risks, there is plenty of data to make
my alarm bells ring.
Cell phones emit microwave radiation in the 2 to 5 Gigahertz range.
In 2016, the National Toxicology Program released disturbing
preliminary results from the largest ever cell phone study showing a
link between cell phone radiation
and cancer. 
Rats exposed to the
frequency of radiation emitted by cell phones develop two kinds of
Sadly, these results are in alignment with several observational
studies finding links to the same types of tumors in humans, plus
After an extensive scientific review, in 2011 the IARC
(International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World
Health Organization) released a report classifying cell phone
radiation as a possible human carcinogen. 
In 2015, 190
independent scientists from 39 countries sounded the alarm for
stricter controls on cell phone radiation.
Yet, in spite of all this, the US government continues to insist
cell phones are completely safe, and the CDC even deleted cautions
from their cell phone fact sheet. 
One study found that using a cellphone for just 20 minutes per day
increases brain tumor risk by 300 percent over the course of five
Whatever risks cell phones and other electronic devices pose to us,
they pose an even greater risk to our children.

to your ear allows between 10 and 80 percent of the EMFs to
penetrate two inches into your brain - which is especially concerning
for infants and children whose heads are smaller and delicate brains
are still developing.
Cell phone radiation may be harming our children even before birth.
In a study published in the journal Epidemiology, researchers found

EMFs Damage Mitochondria and Break Apart DNA
Unlike ionizing radiation that produces damage by heating up
tissues, low-level radiation in the radiofrequency and microwave
part of the spectrum causes biological effects without raising
According to EMF expert
Martin Blank, PhD, these
frequencies "stress" cellular proteins in human cells. This may
explain many of their harmful effects such as inflammation,
cardiovascular disease, and cancer. 
EMFs have been shown to cause serious mitochondrial dysfunction from
free radical damage.
Mitochondria are the little energy powerhouses
inside our cells. Free radical damage is linked to anxiety,
dementia, autism, ADHD, cardiac arrhythmias, depression, and
Dr. Martin Pall of Washington State University has published a
number of papers about the mechanisms by which EMFs inflict damage
to plants, animals and humans.
He has concluded that EMFs damage

into your cells.
This triggers a
biochemical cascade resulting in massive numbers of free radicals
that damage your cell membranes and mitochondria, break your DNA,
accelerate aging, and drive up your risk for chronic disease. 
Rates of chronic disease are soaring. Since 1990, we have seen an
explosion of autoimmune, neurological and metabolic diseases.
Alzheimer's has increased by 299 percent, depression by 280 percent,
and chronic fatigue by a staggering 11027 percent. 
speculate that mitochondrial damage from EMFs is a major factor.
EMFs are now directly associated with the following:
Reproductive effects (e.g., reduced sperm count and motility,
DNA damage and oxidative stress
Cognitive problems (impaired reaction time, memory, brain fog)
Fatigue and malaise

The World's Oldest and Best Kept Secret
Now that you have an evidence-based understanding of the risks of
radiation, let's take a look at one of the tools that we can use to
help shield us from this growing 21st Century threat:
If you've never heard of shungite, you're not alone.
mineral first came into my awareness when I was researching crystals
with EMF-protective properties. Many crystals and minerals are
described by energy workers as protective against radiation, but
there is little science behind most of these claims.
completely discredit the body of what I would call "intuitive
knowledge," but it's nice when empirical studies actually exist!
Shungite is unique in that there is actually a scientific basis for
its claims - or at least some of them.
Shungite has wide-ranging health (and industrial) benefits stemming
from its extremely unique molecular structure. It is touted as
offering everything from radiation protection to treating
infections, inflammation, allergies, high blood pressure,
osteoarthritis, digestive problems, and skin conditions.
In Russia, shungite has been studied extensively for the treatment of
depression, trauma and all sorts of mental/emotional problems.
Shungite is the world's oldest hydrocarbon-based rock. 
a mineral in the strictest sense of the word, although it's often
referred to as one.
Shungite comes from only one place on Earth - an
area known as
Karelia, which is a geographic area divided between
Russia and Finland (just north of Saint Petersburg).
Karelia By Jniemenmaa (Own work) [GFDL
(http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html) or CC-BY-SA-3.0
In 1887, shungite was named after the village Shung'a in Russian
Karelia, near the shore of Onezhskoe Lake.
The Karelian rock
formation, known as the Zazhoginsky deposit, contains about 35
million tons of shungite and shungite rock.
Shungite may be new to Westerners, but the Karelians have been using
it medicinally for centuries. Shungite lore dates back to the reign
of Ivan the Terrible, at which time it was simply referred to as
As the story goes, in the 18th century, Peter the Great noticed shungite's powerful healing effects and constructed a shungite spa
for his soldiers.
Many had been poisoned by a type of ore they were
processing. Men who drank water from a nearby spring that ran
through the shungite deposit recovered in just three days - much
faster than normal.
This is the origin of "shungite water," which
I'll be discussing shortly.
Two Billion Years in the Oven
Shungite dates back two billion years to the Precambrian era. Yes,
that's billion with a B!
This was a time when life on our planet was
limited to primitive single-celled organisms. For reference, our
solar system is about 4.6 billion years old. Shungite formed when
organisms accumulated and mixed with mud and silt on the bottom of a
brackish water body.
Geothermal heat and compression transformed
these organic materials into liquid hydrocarbons - probably much like
oil - which slowwwwly became petrified into rock.
Shungite has unique physical and chemical properties due to its
microstructure (atomic structure, conductivity, and magnetic
It consists of unusually large, hollow, and stable
carbon structures with a high oxidative and reductive capacity,
which is where shungite derives its antioxidant properties.
mineral's conductivity is one way you can distinguish between real
shungite and a fake, which I'll talk more about later.
...and a significant
list of other elements.
Some are claiming that shungite contains,
"all the elements in the periodic table,"
...but this really appears to be an exaggeration.
Grades of Shungite
There are different grades or classes of shungite, based on its
In the literature, I noted three-grade and
five-grade classification schemes, but the three-grade is most
Originally, the term "shungite" indicated only those
specimens that were 98 percent pure carbon, but now it is now used
more broadly to indicate any rock that contains some shungite.
The box that follows is the classification scheme used by Regina
Martino in her book Shungite: Protection, Healing and
Type I Shungite (aka Elite or Noble Shungite):
Purest form of shungite with carbon content at least 98 percent; shiny silvery
semimetallic luster; does not lend itself to cutting and shaping;
accounts for only one percent of all available shungite
Type II (aka Black Shungite):
50-70 percent carbon; because it's
easily shaped and polished, this is the type typically used for
sculptures and jewelry; black in color with semi-dull luster (unless
Type III (aka Gray Shungite or Shungite Rock):
30-50 percent carbon;
gray in color with dull or matte luster
This scheme begs the question,
what about 70 to 98 percent carbon,
and zero to 30 percent carbon?
Another classification scheme divides shungite into,
The problem with this is, it leaves out the most
valuable type of shungite - the 98 percent carbon variety.
Why does carbon matter? The more carbon your sample has, the
stronger its wonderful properties. The reason for this is a molecule
What on Earth is a fullerene, you might ask?
Fullerenes & Buckeyballs
In 1985, laboratory chemists synthesized unique, hollow, carbon-rich
molecules shaped like soccer balls.
They named these new molecules
"fullerenes" (or "buckeyballs") after the late
famous for his geodesic dome architectural structures.
Fullerenes were basically molecular hexagons and pentagons bound
together into hollow cages. Each carbon atom served not only to hold
the molecule together, but also as a point of attachment for an
external atom or molecule.
This structure gave rise to a staggering
number of chemical combinations. Fullerenes became the "tinker toys"
of nanotube technology, giving rise to all sorts of innovations from
drug delivery systems to solar cells to bulletproof vests.
In 1991, Science magazine distinguished fullerenes as the "molecule
of the year," and in 1996, the scientists who originated them were
awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
When synthesized in the lab, fullerenes were considered nonexistent
But in 1992, they were discovered in shungite!
this day, scientists remain mystified about how these unique
molecules were able to form. They require very high temperatures and
pressures; therefore, the top two theories of origin involve
lightning strikes and meteorites.
Fullerenes are not abundant in shungite, despite what you might
read. In fact, they've only been found in elite (noble) shungite and
black shungite, with a greater proportion in the elite. ,
, , 
One analysis estimated
fullerenes to represent only 0.0001 to 0.0001 percent by weight.
Shungite contains seven types of fullerenes, containing between 24
and 70 carbon atoms, but from what I understand, only the larger
fullerenes (60 and 70 carbons) have the desired stability.
Naturally occurring-fullerenes have the additional property of
encapsulating water and gases (helium for one) inside their hollow
Natural fullerenes are members of a highly exclusive club. Since
their discovery in shungite, they have been found in fulgurites
(glassy rocks produced by lightning strikes), meteorite impact
craters, lava flows, coal, fossilized dinosaur eggs, and cosmic dust
from planetary nebulae.

Shungite for Inflammation, Immune Function & Detoxification
The Karelians have utilized fullerenes for centuries without knowing
what they were.
It's believed the healing properties of the spring
water that flows through shungite outcrops is a result of the
fullerenes. Shungite is one of nature's gifts for cleansing the
environment, but it may have equally impressive effects for
cleansing our bodies.
Shungite can be consumed orally or applied
topically via shungite water, or the stones can be worn on or close
to the body.
Thanks to shungite's unique structure, it grabs onto many different

list of potential health benefits, listed in the following box. 
Some of these are backed up by studies. Others are simply mentioned
in articles. Often a study is described but no citation is provided,

Shungite's healing properties were first examined by Ukrainian
scientist Grigory Andievsky.
He arrived at the conclusion that
fullerenes act as adaptogens in the body, working at a cellular
level but also systemically.
According to Martino:
"Thanks to its soccer
ball shape, a natural fullerene attracts free radicals that end
up stuck to it, covering its entire surface. Having numerous
free radicals side-by-side on a fullerene leads to their
transformation into a neutral compound.

Now let's take a look
at one particularly special application of shungite:

from ionizing radiation, such as ultraviolet and X-rays.

Bioenergetics researcher Regina Martino has been conducting
experiments on shungite since 2006. 
She studies the impact of
natural objects, such as minerals and crystals, on the energetic
bodies of living beings, which includes our subtle energy centers or
chakras. She defines bioenergetics as the science that studies these
The following is how I understand it, based on what
I gleaned from her book.
Energetic fields move out from our bodies like ripples on a pond. In
most people, the vital field extends out from the body about five to
eight feet. Our vital fields are almost immediately affected by any
change in our internal or external environment, including food,
water, toxic exposures, emotions, lifestyle, and overall health.
If there is a persistent disturbance reducing the vital field, it
can lead to physical or emotional illness.
Chronic exposure to
electromagnetic radiation is one of those disturbances. Many people
are unaware of how EMFs are affecting them until they are away from
them for a while.
In repeated experiments, Martino has been able to measure the
effects of shungite - and hundreds of other minerals - on human vital
fields. She has developed a highly reliable, reproducible way to
measure these energetic fluctuations.
She has found that shungite,
more than any other rock, is able to realign the chakras and
optimize the vital field.

This can happen whether the shungite is in direct
contact with your body or just nearby.
In particular, shungite greatly increases or concentrates of the
vital field in the first chakra, or "root chakra." The density of
our energy (density here is a good thing) is directly linked to the
strength of our first chakra.
When we feel weak or depleted, our
energy density is low, but when it's high we experience greater
resistance to external disturbances and a better capacity to recover
from illness or emotional trauma.
Martino writes much more about
this in her book.
Here is another way to understand it.

frequencies in our own energy field through the physical law of

that affect the physical body and shift brain function."
German studies have demonstrated that electromagnetic radiation from

known as "resonance." Shungite appears to transform manmade EMFs

There are several YouTube videos where you can watch shungite in
action, using EMF meters as a measuring tool. , 
How to Harness the Power of Shungite
There are three primary ways shungite can be used:
Wear shungite jewelry, or carry a piece in your pocket
Place shungite forms around your home or workplace
Drink shungite water, or apply it topically
Type I Shungite is the purest and most powerful form of the mineral,
but it's also the most expensive.
Because this type is not easy to
shape or polish, it is most often used in its raw form. It is the
only type I recommend for making shungite water, which is discussed
in the next section.
Type II shungite (black shungite) can be carved and polished into
forms, such as spheres and pyramids.
It's typically used for
jewelry, palm stones and larger sculptures placed around a space to
mitigate the effects of EMFs coming from your devices, as well as
from your neighbors.
Many individuals report feeling better when
wearing these stones. You may or may not "feel" the energy of a
piece of shungite, but sensing is not required in order for you to
reap its benefits.
Shungite jewelry should be metal-free or at least
have a minimal amount of metal, because metal is essentially an EMF
Besides writing, my lifelong passion for art has led me into
designing healing jewelry, and my stone of choice is shungite. I
also have a collection of shungite gardens for the home and
workplace - striking combinations of EMF protective crystals.
feeling is that EMF protection should be as beautiful as it is
According to Martino, when shungite is carved into forms, each form
has its own unique effects and emanations. She notes pyramids for
their high power and range.
For example, a pyramid with 2.8-inch
sides emanates 9.8 feet from its flat side and 11 feet from each
edge. On the other hand, spheres emit a more uniform and harmonious
energy that's better for living rooms and bedrooms.
As an aside, shungite placed on or around an electronic device does not interfere
with the function of the device.
Ideally, you would place shungite both on your body AND around your
living space, creating overlapping shields of protection.
Electromagnetic fields are ubiquitous today - we can't see them and we
can't escape them, so the more sources of protection we have, the
Does shungite need cleansing?
Amazingly, it does not!
It is a self-cleaning mineral that does not
hold on to negative energies.
This is related to the fact that it
transforms energy, rather than absorbing it.
How to Choose a Stone...
Let it choose you.
"Every single stone has its own special vibration.
different people are called to a different stone, because it's in
alignment with what their vibration is... that particular vibration
is when a person comes in here and they can walk through not notice
many extraordinary stones, but all of a sudden, they are attracted
to a particular stone.
That sense of attraction is intuitive
intelligence, as far as I am concerned.
And it's the most important
thing that happens here and maybe a lot of places in life; pay
attention to that sense of attraction because it's your right brain,
your intuitive intelligence is communicating."
The Purification & Restructuring of Water
Shungite has been used commercially in Russia for water purification
since the 1990s, and studies continue worldwide.

published in the May 2017 issue of Carbon. , 
As some of the previously mentioned studies reveal, shungite water
is known for its antioxidant effects, leading many to start brewing
up their own. Shungite is said by some to "restructure" water into a
more biologically beneficial form, although I lack a clear
explanation of this.
Many different protocols for making shungite
water can be found on the Internet, but a word of caution is in
I recommend using only Type I shungite (elite shungite, 98
percent carbon or higher) from a reputable source.
Some folks are using black shungite, but from the chemical analyses
that have been published, there is a risk of leaching heavy metals
into the water that you do not want to ingest in large
quantities - particularly aluminum, copper, iron, and nickel.
Black shungite has between 30 and 50 percent non-carbon elements, which
are all water soluble to various degrees and can concentrate in
shungite water. 
The risk is much lower from elite shungite due to
its high carbon content, so it's worth the investment.
I use Regina Martino's protocol for making shungite water.
she recommends is 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of elite shungite per liter
Here's how you make it.
Rinse the shungite pebbles to remove dirt and dust. Combine them
with water in a glass or ceramic carafe. I use filtered water and a
gallon-sized drink dispenser with a stainless-steel spigot for ease
Let the shungite and water mixture sit overnight, or for
three days for maximum effect. Consume one to two glasses per day.
Refill your container when the water level gets low.
The shungite keeps indefinitely without becoming negatively
charged - at least in the energetic sense.
That said, there is some
risk of the pebbles picking up impurities such as nitrates,
chlorine, fluoride, or even mold, so she advises purifying the
pebbles in the sun every four to six months.
She also recommends
changing out your shungite pebbles every two to three years if
you're using heavily chlorinated or polluted water.
This is a pretty neat trick for you campers out there; pack some shungite for your next camping adventure!
Shungite Healing Baths
Shungite baths allow you to soak your entire body in shungite love.
Simply add 400 to 500 grams (about a pound) of shungite pebbles to
very hot bath water.
When it has cooled to tolerance, climb in and
soak until it's no longer warm, at least 15-20 minutes.
How to Tell Real Shungite from Fake
Unfortunately, there is no shortage of dishonest individuals who
would love to take your money in exchange for fake shungite. My
number one rule is, know your source and buy only from a reputable
The good news is, there is a very reliable way to tell if your
shungite is fake.
Genuine shungite conducts electricity, which is a
rare property for stones and crystals. Other than natural metals
like gold, silver and copper, most minerals are good insulators but
poor electrical conductors.
A few minerals are semiconductors such
as galena, pyrite, graphite, sphalerite, cinnabar, and several
others, but these do not conduct electricity like shungite. 
I check my shungite using a

little light colored or metallic flecks and veins, which is a sign
you have the real deal. Shungite looks much like the mineral galena (lead ore).
galena is much softer than shungite and has very different cleavage.
Galena cleaves into cubes, in three perpendicular planes as shown in
the photo above.
On the other hand, elite shungite has a
conchoidal fracture - meaning, the cleaved surfaces show concentric
rings. If you're familiar with obsidian (volcanic glass), it's like
Galena is also very heavy for its size - it has a high specific
gravity. Shungite is much lighter because it has a much lower
The Only SUREFIRE Way to Protect Yourself
By now, you have a good overview of the latest information about
The evidence for shungite's water purification ability is
certainly compelling. Its ability to mop up radiation and help
cleanse our bodies of free radicals is also impressive, because
reducing free radicals brings us a step closer to lowering our risk
for cancer, chronic disease, and premature aging.
Shungite is also
antibacterial and antiviral, which is important in this age of
increasingly resistant superbugs.
More studies are needed, especially in the West. Russia had a
jumpstart on us by virtue of its proximity to shungite.
Nevertheless, the existing body of data should give us hope!
It is tempting to place an inordinate amount of faith in objects
that promise us safety, so beware of overconfidence...
EMF exposure is
cumulative. Even if these stones provide some measure of protection,
they are not a license for limitless exposure. We love our
technology but we must be smart about its use.
The foundation of your EMF defense plan should be minimizing your
exposure while supporting your body's innate ability to protect and
heal itself. EMF jewelry should only be used as a "supplement," an
added boost - like adding a multivitamin to an already-healthy diet.
The only sure way to protect yourself is to
reduce your exposure...
unplug, reconnect with nature, eat well, do your emotional "clearing," and support your body's detoxification processes.
You cannot completely eradicate EMFs from your life, but you can
minimize your exposure.
Here are a few tips for reducing you and
your family's EMF load:
cellphone away from your head, and increase your distance
from EMF-emitting devices as much as possible
use to areas with excellent reception because the phones use
more power (and therefore emit more radiation) where
reception is poor
Turn off your
Wi-Fi router and cellphone when not in use
eliminating wireless altogether, and opt for Ethernet cables
Do not allow your
children to use cellphones
