I'm the type of person that when I talk about something specially if it is related to health and healing, is not just because I hear someone else saying it, or have done a quick search on Google, but because I do an extensive research on my own, and specially test things out. I do a lot of testing, on my own and in collaboration with other professionals in the field. BUT it is imperative I share my knowledge and research with you, so you know how to do things the right way. The healthy way!


I have extensively talk about the miraculous healing properties of Shungite mineral, and the incredible ability it has to cleanse and purify water. Turning bad contaminated or bad quality water into clean healthy water. When placed in water, the fullerenes in shungite attract and neutralize waterborne contaminants. Shungite has been used commercially in Russia as a water purification media since the 1990s. Among the list of contaminants it may remove are: bacteria (and other microbes), nitrates, heavy metals,  pesticides, volatile organics, pharmaceuticals, chlorine, and fluoride. One of the reasons shungite has the ability to neutralize contaminants is because the fullerenes within its composition can hold a tremendous amount of hydrogen. 

The stone has been documented to have a high oxidative/reductive capacity. Shungite water is known for its antioxidant effects. When you place Elite Noble shungite stones in water they enrich water with fullerenes. Shungite water has powerful antioxidant properties. It is proven that digesting shungite water provides a positive therapeutic effect and helps to cope with a great number of diseases including skin related problems, chronic respiratory issues, headaches, aches in joints and muscles as well as the problems with the digestive system.

Shungite Elite Noble


There are three types of Shungite (for those who doesn't know) please see below:

1- TYPE I: Elite Noble Shungite also known as Silver Shungite.

Type I occurs as a black, vitreous mineral with a semimetal-lic, silvery shine. it contains 98 percent organic carbon. This is the most scarce form since it amounts for only 1 percent of all shungite that it is found. It can be easily identify because of its conchoidal fractures. Ocre colored inclusions are jarosite, a basic sulfate of iron formed from the oxidation of pyrite. 

Carbon Content is 98%

2-  TYPE II: Black Shungite

Type II occurs as a black mineral. This is the kind of shungite most often used to make objects because, unlike type I, it can be easily shaped and polished (giving it a brilliant shine). This Shungite contains 50 percent to 70 percent organic carbon.

Carbon Content 50-70% 

3- TYPE III Petrosky Shungite

Type III is called approximately 70-80% carbon. Petrovsky Shungite and this is the shungite used during the time of Peter the Great. It is very rare. Even though it has a very high carbon content, it can be ground, shaped and polished into different forms such as beads and jewelry. This Shungite contains 70 percent to 80 percent organic carbon.

Carbon Content = 70-80%

Please note on my website I do not sell Petrosky Shungite. I sell only Elite Noble Shungite To make water and in jewelry form and then the Type II Black Shungite for healing, EMF protection and else. There is a full catalog of products created with this Shungite. You will find them in Polished form or in it's natural rough form.


Because it is very important that if you going to use shungite to make water, you need to do it RIGHT and also know the difference, if you want to buy shungite. And TEST it first, before putting it in the water you are going to ingest. As you can see for the pictures below and after extensive testing done on my own, you can clearly see the difference of water, when I added different types of shungite. If you want to make shungite water, make sure to use the ELITE NOBLE SHUNGITE (Type I) and make sure you are buying it from a reputable and trusted source!

VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU WANT TO MAKE SHUNGITE WATER:  Don't believe everything you read. Black Shungite contains carbon, but it is mostly made up of other elements/metals/minerals. Black Shungite may contain arsenic, or other naturally occurring toxic minerals or metals. Therefore, NEVER use Black Shungite for any form of water purification.


On this collage I created you will see several images together, the one on the left hand side, is the large glass jar that I use to make Shungite water in my house, and of course it's filled with Elite Noble Shungite. It is very large so I can drink along the day and always have plenty of ready made Shungite water.

I drink during the day, and at night before going to bed I refill the jar with more water, so it can be charged and ready for me to drink the next day.

This is some testing I have done, adding the Type II Shungite BUT from different sources. As you can see, on one of the pictures the waters turned brownish and with some kind of residue floating on the water and adhered to the shungite stone.


This is clearly lower quality type of shungite water and NOT fit to make water for drinking. WHY it turned brown, you may ask? There are inferior grade of Shungite stones for the Type II Water Crystals.  


Some of the pieces have other crystals in with them.  That's why that one is brown.  During shipment, powder is stirred up and probably coats the pieces of other color with Shungite powder so that you don't see that you have an unsuitable piece of Shungite to use in the water.


Then the other picture is from the type II shungite water, but of good quality. Meaning, IF you cannot get the Elite Noble because of its difficulty to find or the price tag, then use the type II shungite water. Just make sure you buying REAL shungite and of excellent quality.

This picture containing the 4 cups of water above, is some of the continued testing, we did at my Chiropractor's office Dr. Moyal, testing water.

The cup #1 is my own water made with the Elite Noble Shungite and as you can see for the color, is completely alkaline reaching up to a Ph 9 to 10 from the Ph scale 1 to 14. Number 1 (color orange) been the most acidic to Ph 14 (purple) the most alkaline. Reason why the color purple is not shown on the color chart, is because the preferably alkaline level for the human body is about 8.5 to 9 reaching the most blue color.


Anything above that, is a little too much. Remember it is important for the body to maintain it's balance and some acidic levels are important. The perfect balance should be 80/20. 80 percent alkaline and 20 percent acidic.

The cup #2 is the water treated with Elite Noble Shungite, but mostly the type II shungite, mixed in combination. Still alkaline and good to drink, but less powerful than the one made with ONLY Elite Noble Shungite.

The cup #3 is simply the "purified" water companies brings to professional offices or houses, or the one you will pay money to buy at the store. And as you can see by the color, is way to acidic!! basically, a waste of your money.


Then we have the cup #4 with color purple and the most alkaline of all, which is the water you will find at my doctor's office which is filtered water by reverse osmosis and then placed in a large water container with an advance filter system. Way too alkaline, not necessarily bad but excellent to drink at controlled doses, not been the water you drink all the time, for it has way higher levels of alkaline content.


My doctor have both, the filtered water than the companies bring to it's office, and then the advanced filtration water system from which the #4 cup water has been taken for testing purposes. He offers this water, considering the patients attending his office normally drink quite acidic water, so drinking some highly alkaline water for a chance, is great to your body, obviously.

Bottom line and what I'm trying to show you on this page, is that I believe in the incredible health benefits of drinking Shungite water and it's marvelous ability to turn bad contaminated water or acidic water, into alkaline. So I welcome you to not only try, but also do your own research and test. Just make sure as specified above, that when you by shungite for water, not only you using the right type but get it from a reputable trusted source.

Question #1-

Is there anything I need to do when I get my Elite Noble Shungite?

Answer- Yes, I always recommend for you to clean the Elite Noble Shungite you get BEFORE making water with it. Doing this is very simply, when you get your Shungite you may notice some of them may have some "brown dirt" on them, this is very normal. Please place your Elite Noble Shungite immersed in regular water. Leave them there for a few hours, then grab a "soft toothbrush" and gently brush each and every piece, while still inside the water. You will notice that with the toothbrush is very easy to remove the "brown dirt" or Earth deposits that may be adhered to the shungite.


Question #2-

After seeing your pictures on your website, with the brown dirt floating in the water (this is for the regular Shungite stones) how long should I leave them in water to see if they good or not, as your pictures show?

Answer- I always recommend for you to place the shungite stones for at least 48-72 hours inside water. If after this time you see the stones turning the water "dirty" as the picture shows above, DO NOT USE THEM to make water. Those are the low grade shungite and NOT the recommended to make or treat drinking water. Again ELITE NOBLE SHUNGITE is the best one recommended to make shungite water. NOW, this doesn't mean the stones are not good to use or you should get rid of them. Shungite is excellent for many reason and have many amazing uses. Place them around the house in any place you have electronics, such as the TV, computer, phones. Also on the kitchen next to microwaves, the fridge, and any TV's you may have as well. Please read the shungite information I have on my website to see the many health benefits of Shungite and how you can use them.

Question #3-

How many Elite Noble Shungite I need to make water? What if I want to make one little or small bottle of water, how many I need?

Answer- As explained above the reason why I have a large GLASS Drinking Jar (jarade) that can be filled with 2 gallons of water. The reason why I always have such a large jar with shungite water ready is because to make shungite water, the elite noble must be in the water for at least 8 hours, to cleanse and treat the water. So it is easier to fill small bottles of water from here, or a simple glass. IF you do this with a small bottle of water, let's say 8 to 16oz once you drink that water you will have to make shungite water again, taking a minimum of 12-48 hours leaving you with no shungite water while you await. This is the reason why making shingle water in small containers or bottles, is not the ideal or convenient. 

Get yourself a larger glass container such as the one I have and show in the pictures, it can easily be found in Homegoods, Ross stores, wayfair, overstock, ebay or amazon. I drink from this large jarade everyday, then at night I add new water to it. This way the shungite is doing it's job during the entire night, so when I wake up is ready;-) 

As for how many you need, remember this 100 x 1 that is 100 grams per 1 litter. In the store you will find 3 different sizes of Elite Noble Shungite to choose from. Some people prefer to buy the smaller pieces Elite #1 since these weight between 4-8 grams each you will have to use about 12 pieces per liter. Other customers prefer big chunky pieces and may use just one piece. It is up to you, just remember the formula and think in terms of grams to liter. 100 x 1

Other sizes available up to 100 grams per piece, see store for more.

Question #4-

What is the size of the Elite Noble Shungite you sell? I know you sell them per piece, so how big is one piece?


Answer- In my store you can find many different sizes of Elite Shungite. The 8-10 pieces of Elite recommended to use per litter are approximately between 4-8 grams each, these can be found here Elite Noble Shungite For Water Purification Size #1 Sizes and shape may vary as they are all irregular sizes, see images for better understanding.


Question #5-

One of the questions I get asked often as well is about shungite been acidic or alkaline for water.

Answer- If you talk to experts in Russia as I had, they will tell you that shungite water is acidic. The more shungite is left into water the more acidic it will become. When I asked about the shungite river in Russia been known for it's healing properties and purity of water, their answer was that this water (in the river) is flowing, contrary to water that is still in a jar or container. Hence making the water to become even more acidic. This in itself makes sense, at least to me.


However and based on test that I have done (see images of testing acidity in different water above) I have done shungite water and it has turned my water from acid to alkaline, that is what the test strips showed when tested. I believe this could be because the water I initially used BEFORE adding the elite noble shungite was extremely acid, so the shungite not only removed contaminants but helped the water to become more alkaline as well. I recommend for you to do your own testing and experiment with different waters. The important thing here is to know is that shungite water is very healthy for you.
