At The Better Energy Shop in Santa Cruz, California, we are a wellness resource center that provides natural tools to support the mind, body, and spirit. Our team is happy to discuss nutritional remedies, doTerra supplements and protocols, craniosacral therapy, and shungite stones as methods to encourage wellness.

Certain minerals such as shungite stones and other stones have natural properties. The black mineral “shungite”, for example, has been used for purifying water. 

As your Santa Cruz, CA, wellness resource center, we are happy to discuss the properties of shungite as understood throughout history, and other research that has been done for informational purposes.


What Is a Shungite Stone?

Shungite stones are the world’s oldest hydrocarbon-based rocks found only in Russia and Finland in a region called Karelia. Specifically, they come from a deposit near the Shunga village (hence its name). Because it is unique to only one area of the earth, it is not a common mineral and has only truly been widely used in recent years.

The molecules found in shungite deposits are commonly called “Fullerenes” and are shaped like soccer balls. These Fullerenes (named after Buckminster Fuller, the inventor of the geodesic dome structure that Fullerenes resemble) have anti-oxidant properties. They have been used in spas and for health reasons for about 200 years by the local Shun’ga natives.


Properties Historically Associated with Shungite Stones

Shungite rock, due to the presence of the anti-oxidant properties in the Fullerenes, offers amazing wonders.

These improvements can be helpful in a person’s ability to reduce stress via a practice called “grounding” which you can do by holding the stones. Anti-oxidants that the shungite infused water offers are also able to slow down the harmful effects of free radical activity.

Free radicals make atoms unstable because there are too few electrons in the atom. It will then steal electrons from other atoms and even kill cells if left to their own devices. When anti-oxidants are present, they can lend out electrons to stop the free radical activity. By drinking shungite-infused water, people can reduce the damage from free radicals resulting from electromagnetic radiation and from other causes.

Although more scientific evidence is needed to support any clear medical connection on shungite, anecdotal evidence gathered over many years of use by natives in the Shun’ga village demonstrates that noble shungite has been historically seen as beneficial to a person’s overall health and well-being, especially spiritually and mentally.

One way that shungite is utilized by our customers is through shungite-filtered water. When elite shungite is added to water, it purifies the liquid and does not need further water detoxification from other chemicals or boiling. The rock’s carbon content can remove phenol, iron, manganese, chlorine, nitrates, nitrites, bacteria, and other micro-organisms.

Shungite can also assist with electromagnetic sensitivity. When people are around electromagnetic fields (EMF) due to smartphones, cell towers, and other electronic devices, they may develop sensitivity to the EMF and reproductive damage, DNA damage, cancer, cognitive problems, and many other medical issues. 

People also come to the Better Energy Shop to purchase noble and regular grade shungite pendants, beads, earrings, and cell phone tabs because it makes them feel better. The Better Energy Shop is the largest source of shungite jewelry, spheres, pyramids and mini garden statues in the greater region.

Organic substances such as shungite have inherently beneficial properties. When people opt to use the natural mineral shungite is added to water and ingested, it may help relieve stress and assist in anti-inflammatory effects. When people purify water with shungite, many have noticed a relaxing, stress-relieving effect.
