Harnessing the Power of Shungite: A Deep Dive into Water Purification


In an age where access to clean, safe water is paramount, the search for effective and sustainable purification methods has led us to the remarkable mineral known as Shungite. With its ancient origins and potent properties, Shungite has emerged as a powerful tool for purifying water and enhancing its quality. In this blog, we'll explore the fascinating relationship between Shungite and water purification, uncovering the science behind its effectiveness and its potential benefits for human health and well-being.

The Origins of Shungite

Shungite, a carbon-based mineral found primarily in the Karelian region of Russia, boasts a unique molecular structure that sets it apart from other minerals. Dating back over two billion years, Shungite is believed to have formed from organic matter deposited in ancient sea beds and subjected to intense pressure and heat over millennia. This natural process imbues Shungite with remarkable properties that make it ideal for water purification.

The Science of Water Purification with Shungite

At the heart of Shungite's water purification capabilities lies its ability to adsorb and neutralize contaminants, including heavy metals, bacteria, and organic compounds. The high carbon content and unique structure of Shungite create a porous matrix that traps impurities as water passes through it, effectively removing them from the water. Additionally, Shungite is known to possess antibacterial and antioxidant properties, further enhancing its ability to purify and enhance water quality.

Hidden In Plain Sight; Tap Water

Tap water often contains a myriad of contaminants that can compromise its safety and quality. Common pollutants found in tap water include chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals (such as lead, mercury, and arsenic), pesticides, pharmaceutical residues, and microbial pathogens. These contaminants can enter the water supply through various sources, including agricultural runoff, industrial pollution, and aging infrastructure. Consuming tap water contaminated with these substances can pose serious risks to human health, ranging from gastrointestinal issues and neurological disorders to increased cancer risk and developmental abnormalities. Therefore, it's essential to invest in water purification methods to remove these contaminants and ensure access to clean, safe drinking water for you and your family.

How To Use Shungite To Purify Water

Regular Shungite Stones: Natural black Shungite stones with unique irregularities, ideal for water purification and EMF protection

How to Make Shungite Water

Regular Shungite 100 – 150grams per 1liter of water

Elite Shungite 50 – 75grams per 1 litre of water

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Shungite stones or Shungite powder

Clean glass or ceramic container

Clean, filtered, or tap water

Optional: Additional filtration system (such as a fine mesh strainer)

Step 2: Selecting the Right Shungite

Choose high-quality Shungite stones or Shungite powder for water purification. Elite or regular Shungite is suitable for this purpose.

Regular Shungite 100 – 150grams per 1liter of water

Elite Shungite 50 – 75grams per 1 litre of water

 Step 3: Preparing the Water Container

Use a clean glass or ceramic container to hold the water. Avoid using plastic containers, as they may leach chemicals into the water.

Ensure that the container is large enough to accommodate both the Shungite and the desired amount of water.

Step 4: Preparing the Shungite

Carefully wash the stones a few times under running water to remove any dust or dirt until they are clean.

Gently bring a pan of water up to boiling point, then add your Shungite stones and boil for 10 minutes.

Remove from water and leave to dry naturally in direct sunlight.

Place your Shungite into a glass vessel with water. Every 8-10 hours dispose of the water and replace with new water. Repeat 3-4 time.

Your Shungite has been successfully cleansed, cleaned and is ready to use.

Step 5: Adding the Shungite

Place the cleaned Shungite stones or powder into the bottom of the water container. The amount of Shungite needed depends on the volume of water and the desired level of purification.

Step 6: Filling the Container with Water

Fill the container with clean, filtered, or tap water. Ensure that the water completely covers the Shungite stones or powder.

Step 7: Allowing the Water to Purify

The Shungite will start to filter and purify the water immediately. For maximum benefits, leave the first batch for up to 3 days to get maximum benefits. Then you can top up the water as it is used. Scientists have identified that it cleared and showed antibacterial activity within 30 minutes of placing Shungite into the water. After 8 – 10 hours, the water acquired healing properties from the Shungite, and after 48 hours, the water was biologically activated. For optimum results, maximum filtration, and purification, it is advised to leave the Shungite water for 24-72 hours.

During this time, the Shungite will absorb impurities and contaminants from the water, leaving it clean, pure, and energized.

Step 8: Optional Filtration

After the purification period, you may choose to filter the water to remove any remaining sediment or particles. Use a fine mesh strainer or filtration system for this purpose.

Step 9: Enjoying the Purified Water

Once the water has been purified and filtered (if desired), it is ready to drink, cook with, or use for other purposes.

Enjoy the clean, refreshing taste of Shungite-purified water and experience the potential health benefits it may offer.

Step 10: Maintaining the Shungite

After use, rinse the Shungite stones under cold running water to remove any accumulated debris.

Allow the Shungite to dry thoroughly before storing it in a clean, dry place for future use.

Step 11: Repeating the Process

For ongoing water purification, simply repeat the process whenever you need to replenish your supply of purified water.

With proper care and maintenance, your Shungite can provide you with clean, pure water for years to come.


As we conclude our exploration of Shungite and water purification, it's clear that this remarkable mineral holds tremendous promise as a natural and sustainable solution for clean, safe water. Whether used in households, communities, or industries, Shungite offers a powerful tool for addressing the global challenges of water pollution and scarcity. By harnessing the power of Shungite, we can take significant steps towards ensuring a healthier and more sustainable future for all.
