When placed in water, 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 will remove are: bacteria (and other microbes), nitrates, heavy metals, pesticides, volatile organics, pharmaceuticals, and chlorine. 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 higher grade, referred to as the silver form—also as elite or noble shungite—has a carbon content of 80% or more (and a correspondingly higher fullerene content).
The stone has been documented to have a high oxidative/reductive capacity. Shungite water is known for its antioxidant effects.
