Cleaning the shungite chips
Briefly soak and stir 250g of shungite chips in 1 tsp of baking soda mixed with several cups of water. Don’t use soap. Rinse shungite chips very thoroughly under cool running water.
Making your first batch of shungite water
Place the well-rinsed shungite chips in a 2 litre glass or enamel container and fill with cold tap water. Use 2 liter of water for each 250g of shungite chips.
Let the water stand with the shungite chips for 24 hours. The container must be open to breathe during this process. A thin, natural fibre cloth can be used to cover the container to exclude dust and insects.
Using shungite-infused water
Pour the shungite-infused water into another lidded glass or ceramic container. This water is the finished water, ready for use. Refill the original shungite container with tap water to prepare a new batch.
Excellent as a hair rinse. Useful for pets, birds and plants.
Once a month, briefly re-soak and stir the shungite chips in the baking soda/water mix as described above. Then thoroughly rinse the shungite chips under running water. Put the chips in the sun for an hour to recharge. Sterilize the container at regular intervals. Replace the shungite chips with new chips approximately every 6 – 12 months, depending on the quality of the source water.

Shungite is a remarkable black stone that has been used in Russian households for centuries. Although it looks similar to coal, shungite has physical and chemical characteristics that are unlike any other natural mineral substance.
Where does Shungite come from?
There are several theories about the origins of shungite. Since it has unique properties formed by extreme temperatures only known to occur in stellar interiors and during lightning strikes, some scientists believe it came from a meteorite that crashed into an area of northwestern Russian, possibly billions of years ago. This location, on the shores of a lake in the Russian Republic of Karelia, is the only place shungite is found on Earth.
For hundreds of years the waters which spring from shungite rock formations around this lake have been used for healing purposes.
Russian Tsar, Peter the Great, supplied a piece of shungite to each of his troops to purify their drinking water. History records that when an epidemic of dysentery broke out during the Battle of Poltava between Russia and Sweden, the Swedish forces did not have the shungite advantage to clean their water and, weakened by dysentery, lost the war (1709).
Shungite’s composition & characteristics
Shungite consists of fine crystalline silicate minerals in an amorphous carbon matrix. The silicate particles are approximately 0.5 to 1 micron in size. Shungite is made up of spherical structures called fullerenes rarely found in naturally occurring minerals. Shungite is electrically conductive, has high strength, density, chemical resistance, catalytic, adsorptive and redox properties.
Fullerenes are a newly discovered (1985) form of carbon which was previously only known to exist as diamond, graphite or coal. Fullerenes are named after Buckminster Fuller, the American architect who designed geodesic domes which resemble spherical fullerenes in appearance. Fullerene C60 looks like a soccer ball and is also referred to as a ‘buckyball’.
Fullerenes are hollow spheres of strongly linked hexagonal and pentagonal rings. They have enabled so many breakthroughs in science, medicine and industry that the laboratory scientists who developed their use received the Noble Prize for Chemistry in 1996.
The quantum behaviour of fullerenes has captured the attention of scientists who have observed a Fullerene C60 Buckyball pass through two different slits simultaneously, making it the largest particle known to demonstrate the wave/particle duality of matter. This experiment is typically performed with much smaller particles such as electrons, photons or single atoms.
The discovery of fullerenes in Shungite
For several years after fullerenes were first discovered by researchers in 1985, it was believed that fullerenes could only be produced under laboratory conditions. In 1992, geochemists working at Arizona State University, noticed similarities between laboratory-produced fullerenes and shungite. The recognition that shungite embodies naturally occurring fullerenes sent shock waves through the scientific world. Since then, Russian scientists have been developing the use of shungite for a broad range of applications including restorative agronomy, radiation shielding materials, stealth technology, water treatment, chemical de-contamination, and a new generation of medical breakthroughs.
Different grades of Shungite
Chemical composition and appearance varies with different grades of shungite. ‘Dull’ shungite is the most plentiful & least expensive form. It can be polished to a high shine. ‘Bright’ shungite is rarest, most potent and expensive. It has a glassy black metallic appearance and not to be confused with ‘dull’ shungite that has been polished to a high shine.

Miron glass water bottles incorporate the color healing properties of the violet spectrum. The violet glass filters all but the UVA and infra-red spectra of light. This light beneficially stimulates bio-logical substances stored within the glass container. Read our article Bio-photons: the Light in Your Cells, Food & Water.
Drinking colour energized and solarized water
Place the Miron violet glass bottle on a sunny window sill for two hours (or all day if overcast) to infuse the contents with the violet ray imparted by the Miron glass. The water will become noticeably more silky and sweet.
Miron glass containers for food and water
Miron glass containers have unique properties that offer optimal protection against the aging and degeneration typically caused by exposure to light. This makes them the ultimate container for high quality foods, dry goods and cosmetics, leagues beyond other glass jars for the protection and preservation of organic compounds.
Life force & longevity preserved in Miron Glass
The dark violet glass helps contain the life force of the contents of the bottle and maximize the longevity of their energetic and nutrient value. It filters out the damaging range of the light spectrum, allowing only the beneficial violet spectrum (specifically UV-A and Infra-red ) to penetrate.
A cherry tomato was stored for 7 months in a clear glass jar and in a MIRON violet glass jar. Both jars were kept at room temperature and exposed to sunlight. The photo (left) reveals the result after 7 months of storage. The tomato stored in MIRON violet glass shows no loss of color and no signs of drying out.

Scientists have discovered that cells communicate by means of ultra weak light emmissions called biophotons. The quality of this light influences the order and coherence within a living system. Living cells receive and transmit energy in the form of radiation and light, even as life and energy upon earth are dependent on sunlight.
According to world-renowned scientist, Dr. Fritz Albert Popp, bio-chemical reactions are far too slow to explain how biological systems instantly regulate metabolic processes. He advanced the theory that it is light (in the form of bio photons) that directs the cellular communication that sustains life.
“Light can initiate, or arrest, cascade-like reactions in the cells, and that genetic cellular damage can be virtually repaired, within hours, by faint beams of light. We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complex relationship between light and life, but we can now say, emphatically that the function of our entire metabolism is dependent on light.”
Dr. Fritz Albert Popp, Biophysicist
Beams of light called biophotons
A biophoton is an ultra weak light emission (photon of light) from a living biological system. Biophotonics is the study of how these photons interact with and within biological systems.
Biophotons appear to facilitate instantaneous communication throughout our bodies. Bio photon research shows that all living substances emit weak light which is probably the means for an intricate web of communication and energy that entwines all living systems.
Bio-photons in food and water support health
Human cells utilize this ultra weak light energy to sustain and order complex life processes. Nutritious food and vibrant water supply the body with energy. Sustained energy means less entropy (decline and degeneration). Less entropy means greater order, proper metabolic functioning and coherence. The bio-photons in food and water can provide order as well as energy to the body. Popp maintained that the primary benefit of nutritious food is not for chemical supply of energy, but rather for the ability of that food to transport oscillations in the form of biophotons which decrease the entropy of the organism. The same principles apply to water and explain why it is so beneficial to drink ‘living’ water.
It is fascinating to consider that the reason your brain is 95% water is because water is the ultimate receiver and carrier of information. A single drop of water can store many terabytes* of information. This suggests that the watery content of your brain makes it a far more powerful information processor than any computer. This thought inspires drinking more water!
Water has memory
Even more fascinating are increasing new revelations that water is the medium of consciousness.
Evidence suggests that the malleable structure of water is far more significant than our preoccupation with its chemistry. The geometric clustering of water molecules are altered by the subtlest of influences. Hundreds of thousands of information panels constitute these geometric structures. They register energetic imprints from substances, activities and the frequency of thought to which water has been exposed. This attribute is sometimes referred to as the ‘memory’ of water.
A remarkable film called Water – the Great Mystery** interviews world class scientists about these fascinating properties of water, one of whom refers to its impressionable structure as the ‘alphabet’ of water.
Human emotions change water
Evidence shows that any substance that contacts water leaves a trace upon it. However, human emotions are the strongest influence. Water constitutes, migrates and interpenetrates everything. All is connected by water. We can change our world, via water, by the conscious use of thought and feeling.
Our ancient traditions of using ‘holy’ water spring from this knowledge. The frequency of prayer corrects the water already inside the body. Water is the information carrier that changes the blood, tissues and reflects the very character of human consciousness.
The Earth, our planetary body, is a giant container of water. It, too, responds to the quality of our thoughts and feelings. Love increases the frequency that imprints upon water.
Interestingly, it is water we seek to determine the presence of life (consciousness!) on other planets. Water brings a pre-existing impulse to life. It creates the structure of DNA and proteins. Every seed and embryo begins in water, the carrier of the biological intelligence that is the determiner and means of change.
Dr. Emoto’s water crystals
Water’s response to human thought have been popularly demonstrated by Dr. Masaru Emoto’s frozen water crystals. These crystals reveal how water structures itself according to the imprint of human thought and activity. Beautiful symmetry occurs when water is exposed to loving and uplifting influence.
Russian physicist demonstrates the influence of human thought on water
Russian physicist, Konstantin Korotkov, has developed a technique using ‘bioelectography’ that can register light emmissions from living things, including water. His instruments ‘see’ biophotons which indicate the health and vitality of the subject from which they emanate, whether it be a human or a drop of water. Korotkov’s studies also show that subtle changes of intention alter the strength and quality of light emissions from humans and water.
Collective intention experiment for water on March 22
Author, Lynne McTaggart, has organised a group of scientists for The Intention Experiment, a series of experiments demonstrating the transformative power of collective intention.
All three of the above researchers are convening at Lake Biwa in Japan on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day) for a Clean Water Experiment. You can join the live experiment here.
Our love and gratitude can transform water – our bodies, our minds, our planet.
