Peter the great of Russia had heard of the healing properties of a nearby natural spring which flowed out of a shungite deposit. He ordered an investigation which showed the extraordinary healing properties of the spring and ordered the first spa to be built on the shores of Lake Onega. Peter the Great then decreed that all his soldiers carry a piece of Shungite at all times with them and put it in their flask to purify their drinking water.
