As in the famous folk tale, in the case of mumiyo scientists stopped at a stumbling block: where to go? How to explain the origin mumiyo? According to modern concepts, there mumiyo mineral, animal, vegetable, oil. Each of them has specific properties, but all of them distinguished by efficient doctors effect.
Doctor of Medical Sciences A. Shakirov, before widespread use mumiyo in his medical work, carefully studied the works of numerous scholars of the East, spent a lot of laboratory research and experiments. He examined dozens mumiyo deposits in the mountains of Central Asia.
According to Shakirov, mumiyo – mineral rocks. He has long been caught in deep caves, grottoes at an altitude of 3000 m, inaccessible to the penetration of animals and birds, the adverse impact on vegetation, even for lichens, which many experts consider the source mumiyo. Shakirov mumiyo describes as a solid education with a variety of color – from yellow-brown to black, with shiny, like polished surface.
The taste is bitter. When heated and the temperature is lowered the air softens. Dissolves in water, benzene, acetone, chloroform, methanol and ethanol.
Here is one of the fields mumiyo in a mountain cave, where Shakirov barely penetrated with a hunter Khaitov. In light of the candles could be seen a dark-brown incrustations on the vaults and side walls, a thick substance sochilos directly from the stones and froze them.
In another field, in a cave on a mountaintop Kichkina Kamulsay, in Kyrgyzstan, mumiyo running down and dripping with limestone arches, like tallow from a candle. The ceiling was covered with dark-colored cone-shaped stalactite length of about 2 cm
Could feel an odor mumiyo. Sochivsheesya substance light brown color on Mers freezing dark to black. Actually, the formation mumiyo years, centuries-old: hardened mumiyo black is considered the best.
The fact that in the formation mumiyo participate feces of various animals, which eat plants, or a product of the allocation of wild honey bees, the researchers wrote the Ancient East.
For example, in “Mineralogy” Bi-Rooney says: “… the bees seal the honey and its Detva cover sealed with wax and place into something very dark, with a pungent smell, similar to wax, and this is one of the best cures for injuries and wounds ; it is expensive and rare and is called in Persian mummies.
In fact, according to observations of beekeepers, bees in the spring and early summer produce honey in the summer – with the smell of candy essences, in the autumn – with the smell of manure. Apparently, black film, marked Bireh, is an extract of the slurry.
