Shungite is a natural mineral with a basic, carbon-specific structure. They call it the “stone of life”. It is only located in the Republic of Karelia, Russia. Shungite purifies water of excess nitrate and nitrite, copper, magnesium, iron, parasitic eggs, and removes various flavors and odors. It saturates water with calcium salts, magnesium, microelements up to a concentration that is optimal for the human organism. It disinfects water without the use of chlorine or ultraviolet radiation.
