If you’re like most people who have bought shungite, it’s common to have been attracted by the benefits. We’re sure you’ve heard of many of them, but it’s important that you know exactly why shungite is so powerful. 

Simply put, the fullerenes in the shungite are scientifically known to act as antibacterial agents, antioxidants, and protect our bodies from dangerous free radicals. With the 90-98% carbon composition of Elite shungite, together with its fullerenes, this stone can be used for a number of applications. As noble shungite is the richest in these fullerenes, it is the most beneficial for the following uses.

Shungite Water Purification

Elite shungite is ideal for making shungite water. Charged water, created from this form of shungite has multiple applications. 

(Adding shungite to water creates a natural healing remedy)
Regardless of the application, the way to make shungite water, will be the same. Instructions for making shungite water are found below this section. 

Drinking Shungite Water

Charged water has the ability to provide many health benefits related to cleansing and purification. It is known to disinfect the water from chemicals and heavy metals, and acts as an antiviral, antihistamine, and antibiotic thanks to the fullerenes’ negative spin quality. When shungite water is consumed in the body, many people claim that the powerful compounds can neutralize contaminants in the water, break up virus molecules, and weaken free radicals.
You can drink shungite water on it’s own, add it to beverages, cook with it (improves preservation) or use it to wash your produce. 


  1. First, you need to have a large glass holding container. 
  2. Weigh out roughly 100-150 g of elite shungite stones. Smaller pieces will be more effective for making shungite water since overall they hold more surface than larger pieces.
  3. Rinse stones with water and then boil for 10 min. 
  4. Strain the water and rinse the stones again before placing them at the bottom of a glass container.
  5. Add 1L or 1/4 gallon of water in a glass container, be sure that your container is out of direct sunlight.  *If your glass container holds more than 1L or 1/4 gallon, simply make the required adjustments to add more stones.
  6. For best results, leave the shungite stones in water for 24hours at a minimum of 6 hours.


1) Do not keep shungite water in a plastic or metal container or pitcher. Elements within shungite interact with elements in the plastic and metal to then get infused into water. Glass and ceramic are ideal for this application. You can still boil the stones in a metal pot since you will rinse the stones afterwards again before placing them in a pitcher with water. 

2) Healthy people who want to maintain their health should drink 1 to 2 glasses (a glass of 2 dcl or 7 oz of water) a day.

3-4 glasses a day are recommended for detoxification of the organism.

The remaining water can be given to plants. Customers tell us from their experience positive effects to plant health and growth after using regular shungite water for their plants.

3) If you’ve used all your water during the day, before going to bed, simply top up the water in your container and in the morning, it’ll be ready to drink. It’s not necessary to clean or charge our stones every time you make shungite water.

4) Don't be afraid of the black color of the water, it will disappear after a few minutes of standing. Shungite has a truly "miraculous" effect on the human body, it has been claimed that it rejuvenates, protects, relieves pain, neutralizes the action of geopathogenic zones and affects the psycho-physical mood in humans.

Shungite FAQ

1. How do I clean and charge my elite shungite?

There are many ways to clean your shungite. The most common is by running it under water to rinse it. Perform this process until the water runs clear. Then, you can leave our shungite in the open air under the sun or moonlight.

Charging and cleansing your elite shungite can also be done in the following ways:
  • Placing it in the earth

  • Surrounding it will other crystals, ie. amethyst 

  • Using smoke from sage
 or palo santo
  • Running through a natural stream of water

2. Are charging/cleansing my stones the same as cleaning them?

Technically, cleaning your stones, at least in the traditional sense, isn’t actually necessary, as they do not take on any negative energy. Cleaning therefore, would be required, only to wash away any loose pieces of dirt or dust that may have accumulated. 
Charging, on the other hand is like powering up your shungite; giving it that little extra bit of energetic alignment and balance.

3. Do I need to replace my shungite stones after a period of time?

The better care you take of your stones, the longer they will last; however, as a rule of thumb, roughly every year or so, you should replace your stones. Cleaning and charging your shungite on a regular basis, every few months, will extend their use. If you are using them in water that is heavily polluted or chlorinated, they should be replaced more often. And, Instead of throwing away your elite stones when it’s time to replace them, why not place them in your garden or flower pots!
