Fullerenes:

It is the presence of Fullerenes in Shungite that generates much of the interest in the material.  Discovered in 1985, a Fullerene is a molecule of carbon in the form of a hollow sphere, ellipsoid, tube, or other shape.  Only minute quantities of Fullerenes, in the form of C60, C70, C76, C82 and C84 molecules, are produced in nature.  Hidden in soot and formed by lightning discharges in the atmosphere.  The Fullerene family, and especially C60, has appealing photo, electrochemical and physical properties.  These properties can be exploited in various medical fields.  In 1992, Fullerenes were found in Shungite from Zazhoginskoy.
