In recent years, healing crystals have become increasingly popular. These stones are believed to possess qualities that can enhance the health of your mind, body, and soul in various ways.
Healing crystals are generally used as a form of complementary and alternative medicine. Complementary medicine is a practice that’s used in combination with standard therapies, while alternative medicine is used instead of it.
There are many types of healing crystals, but some are exceptionally unique. One example is shungite, a rare stone that’s said to work against pollutants, free radicals, and harmful germs. There are also claims that it may help shield you from electromagnetic field exposure.
Let’s take a closer look at shungite and its uses. We’ll also explore what the science says about this stone, plus how it’s traditionally used.
What is shungite?
Shungite is a rare black stone made of up to 99 percent carbon. It’s mainly found in Shunga, a village in Karelia, Russia.
The stone has a unique composition. It contains fullerenes, or 3-D spherical molecules made of 60 carbon atoms. These molecules are hollow and sometimes called buckyballs.
Along with fullerenes, shungite consists of nearly all the minerals on the periodic table.
The origin of shungite is a mystery. Typically, materials made of carbon come from decayed organic substances like old forests. But the stone is thought to be at least 2 billion years old. This is before organic life existed on the planet.
Some theories of shungite’s origins include:
a large meteorite collided into Earth and deposited shungite into the ground
shungite formed due to microorganisms in nearby water
the composition of organic matter in sedimentary rocks changed over time
Although scientists are unsure of how shungite was formed or where it came from, they attribute the stone’s potential benefits to its fullerene content.
Does it have any benefits?
To date, there’s little scientific evidence on the benefits of shungite — many are anecdotal or need more solid research. We outline the purported benefits of shungite below.
Kills bacteria and viruses
Fullerenes, which are found in shungite, are a type of carbon nanostructure (CNS). CNSs are different physical forms of carbon.
According to a 2017 review of studiesTrusted Source, CNSs can destroy harmful pathogens. They reportedly work by damaging the cell walls of bacteria and viruses. Additionally, when CNSs interact with microbes, the microbes lose electrons and die.
However, it’s unclear what this means for human disease. More studies are needed to understand how the fullerenes in shungite can specifically affect pathogens.
Since ancient times, shungite has been used to purify water. This is due to its alleged activity against bacteria and viruses.
A 2018 study states that shungite can filter water by removing contaminants and organic substances like pesticides. A 2017 study also found that carbon from shungite can remove radioactive compounds from water.
Reduces oxidative stress
According to a 2017 animal studyTrusted Source, shungite has antioxidant properties.
Researchers exposed mice to ultraviolet B radiation for 2 days. This caused skin damage and oxidative stress in the mice’s skin. Oxidative stress is caused by reactive oxygen species, or molecules that damage healthy cells.
Then, for 7 days, the researchers applied a shungite solution to the mice’s damaged skin. This decreased ROS production and increased the activity of antioxidant enzymes.
These results may seem promising, but it’s important to remember that the study was only done in mice. Additional research is needed to understand shungite’s antioxidant potential for humans.
In the above-mentioned 2017 animal study, shungite was found to reduce inflammation. The researchers measured lower levels of inflammatory markers, including cytokines, or proteins involved in inflammation.
Because of this benefit, the scientists speculated that shungite may be useful for inflammatory diseases. Again, more research is necessary.
Eases physical ailments
Traditionally, water infused with shungite has been used for:
Theoretically, it’s believed that if shungite has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it could help these conditions.
