A good example of water purification by Shungite is the water from lake Onega in Russia.

Shungite benefits work with your root chakra to support and raise your entire spiritual being from the ground up. This provides balance between the left and right sides of the body, and harmony between chakras. As a neutralizer, it will also block out the negative energy that comes from outside sources. People who act as energy vampires, draining you of your life zest, won’t have that effect when you are carrying or wearing Shungite. The energy is so strong, it counteracts their vibes with equally powerful positivity to neutralize their influence on your energy.
