How To Make Shungite Water

Water is a basic human need. It is connected to every form of life on Earth. Each person requires at least 20 to 50 liters of clean, safe water a day for drinking, cooking, and personal hygiene.

Tap water travels miles from its origins, through an infinite number of pipes and water tanks before it reaches your home. It contains pollutants and bacteria from lakes and rivers, borewells and seawater. They are, of course, filtered along the way, yet various chemicals are used in the process – that’s why you get that chlorine taste. More than 2.000 chemicals are found in tap water in the United States, with only 5% of them being safe.


According to the World Health Organisation, more than 80% of all diseases are either directly or indirectly connected with the consumption of contaminated drinking water. But how can you make sure that you know what´s in your glass?

The best way to make sure you drink quality water is to use a natural water filter such as Shungite stones. This wonderful mineral possesses the ability to clean water from harmful substances and to neutralize impurities. 

Shungite is highly absorbent, enough to draw contaminants from water such as chlorine, heavy metals, pesticides, phenols, and dioxins. Also, when placed in water, fullerenes attract and eliminate waterborne bacteria and microorganisms. 

Water filtered with Shungite is safe to drink without any additional purification process like boiling or chemical treatment. It is common to use Shungite to treat local tap water in several Karelian municipalities.

Shungite stones clean water by removing:

  • Phenols
  • Iron
  • Manganese
  • Chlorine
  • Nitrates
  • Nitrites
  • Dioxins 
  • Bacteria
  • Microorganisms

What are the health benefits of Shungite water?

Shungite water is structured and biologically active water, having bactericidal and antioxidant effects. It perfectly hydrates your organs, skin and whole organism.

It washes allergens away from your body, strengthens your immunity and is beneficial in treating skin issues. It accelerates metabolism and prevents various diseases and chronic fatigue.

Water infused with Shungite stones benefits the human body by balancing cellular metabolism and boosting enzyme activity. In addition, it works amazingly for those suffering from histamine intolerance, as fullerenes have antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties helping to relieve pain, soreness and to suppress the symptoms of allergy.

Shungite, a natural fullerene, has antioxidant properties as it reduced the intracellular ROS production and enhanced the antioxidant enzyme activities. It is the first note to show several mechanisms and evidences of Shungite’s antioxidant effects including the improvement of several skin test parameters (moisture, elasticity, roughness, pore size, pigmentation, and wrinkle) and recovery of total white blood cells. This study suggests that natural mineral shungite, as a novel antioxidant, could provide a new therapeutic insight against oxidative- and inflammatory-related diseases.

Thanks to its unique healing, purifying and antioxidant properties, Shungite water can help you to visibly improve the appearance and health of your skin without spending hundreds on expensive cosmetic treatments. 

And what is even better – you can achieve all of this naturally. No toxic additives, no parabens or preservatives. Just pure nature.

How to make and use Shungite water?

Shungite water is very easy to make. For infusion, you can use either elite (silver) or regular (black) Shungite stones.

There is, however, a difference when it comes to consumption of such water:

While water infused with black Shungite can be drank daily without any limitations, the same does not apply to elite Shungite water. This water is amazingly effective when it comes to treating acute conditions, but it is suitable for short-term therapy only. Elite Shungite changes the taste of the water significantly and can cause greasy patches to form on the surface.

How to make amazingly clean Shungite water full of antioxidants and lots of benefits for your body?

  • Rinse black Shungite stones or chips (150-200g) or elite Shungite stones (50-70g) under running water. You can rub the black Shungite with your hands or using a brush to remove any dust if necessary
  • Place Shungite in a glass jar, or ceramic container and pour cold tap water over it
  • Leave the Shungite water to sit at least one hour, ideally overnight.
  • Optimally saturated Shungite water is achieved within 1 – 24 hours. Use the prepared water within 3 days.
  • Sediment in the water is normal and harmless, just let it settle down before you pour it into your glass
  • Refill the container with fresh water and allow time for infusion

Shungite water can have different pH values depending on the size and concentration of Shungite and infusion time. Within the first few hours of infusion, Shungite water can become acidic ( with pH 3-5,5). Drinking water with these pH values is recommended only for therapeutic purposes and in limited volume. It can also be very useful to treat acne, cuts or other skin issues when applied directly on the skin.

For regular drinking, it is best to drink black Shungite water with pH of 7.2 to 7.3. Shungite contains a high concentration of silicates and trace minerals that make water alkaline, however, these elements need more time to get into the water. By infusing the stones in water for 6+ hours, you´ll get perfectly balanced water that is safe to drink daily. 

Extraordinary mineral

Shungite gets its healing powers from one of its unique elements – a crystalline form of carbon called fullerenes. Shungite the only known source of fullerenes on Earth (except for a few meteorites) which means it’s a truly special mineral.

The stone has been used for centuries in its place of origin – Russia. The legend dates its use back to the times of Ivan the Terrible, and local people knew about its magical powers and healing properties.

    1. Hello Emily, thank you for your question! Shungite is recommended for purifying drinking water and it has been tested for this purpose. Therefore, when it comes to drinking/tap water, Shungite has a biocidal effect – it removes all microorganisms, bacteria, and viruses.
      hope this helps,

  1. I haven’t heard of this before, and it is very interesting. It is amazing to think how many people do not have access to clean water in this day and age.
