One of the most interesting crystals out there is also one of the least known. We have only recently found out about Shungite and its incredible properties. This sleek, black crystal is estimated to be a staggering 2 billion years old. 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 is a compound containing 60 carbon atoms shaped like a soccer ball-shaped hollow cage. There are many different studies examining it as an antioxidant and a “radical sponge” that can soak up free radicals. 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.
Fullerenes, also known as “buckyballs”. They 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 everything in our universe. These shapes are tiny structures of geometry that make up the fabric of reality itself.
Fullerene C60 contains a high amount of carbon and because of its modulation of oxidative stress, anti-angiogenesis, and immunostimulatory activity 1, it contains possible anti-tumor effects. Because of its 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 which damages the DNA, proteins, and lipids that make up the structure of a cancer cell.
Enough cellular damage will force the cancerous cells to go through apoptosis, which is the process of a cell’s 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 also be a good alternative to the treatment of allergies and other inflammatory diseases.”
Placing Shungite in your drinking water is known to help with a variety of illnesses including asthma, allergies, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, liver disease, diabetes, immune system deterioration and more. Make some Shungite gem-water by putting the stone directly in the water and allow it to soak for at least 2 days for the greatest effect. You can put it in the sun or add other crystals to it as well if you’d like. Before drinking you crystal elixir, we recommend that you practice some breathing exercises and set an intention for that which you wish to receive.
Modern scientific testing has also confirmed the antibacterial benefits of Shungite. When we can combine our modern understanding of science with the real, fundamental truths ancient knowledge has to offer us, we can make incredible leaps in understanding. The people of the past had a lot of incredible knowledge that is just disregarded today. When we understand that everything in this universe is fundamentally energy, we can start to understand how we are able to actually control it consciously.
We have inherent abilities to heal ourselves, just like when we get a small cut and the body heals itself. We are able to do that on large scales with diseases like cancer, but the first step is actually believing that it’s possible. How can we manifest something in our reality when we truly believe it’s not possible?
Opening your mind to new ideas opens up different modalities of healing and ways of living that truly benefits everyone.
