In early 1981 some stone material was being used to surface a loose-chipping roadway being built in a forest, which, as it soon turned out, had some special properties. The dust caused by spreading the stone chips on the road settled on the surrounding ground and trees. Some heavy rainfall helped to wash this dust down into the ground. A couple of sick pine trees which had already been marked for felling turned green again. Mr Robert Schindele Senior was initially amazed by this and looked for a scientific explanation, which he found thanks to an analysis of the stones: the minerals in the mineral rocks were responsible for turning the pine trees green again. Through some experiments carried out by one of the scientists on himself, the effect of the minerals on the human body was also determined.
The raw material is dug out purely mechanically using a bulldozer (no explosives) and broken down and milled according to the lunar calendar. The finely milled minerals (95% below 90µ) are then filled directly from the silo, without the addition of any other ingredients, into tins or vegetarian capsules. "Schindele’s Mineralien™” are a purely natural product and therefore are also subject to minor naturally occurring variations in their contents.
The mineral deposit for "Schindele’s Mineralien™” is a volcanic plug of amphibolite facies metamorphic paragneiss, created due to a crack in the earth’s surface. The exact composition found there is not found anywhere else in the world.
As well as the mineral content, the solubility of the minerals, or their transformation into other minerals involving the release of particular atoms and molecules, is vital to the efficacy of the stone powder.
It contains minerals such as silicon, potassium, iron, magnesium, calcium, sodium, phosphorus and aluminium as well as metallic trace elements such as manganese, zinc, boron, vanadium, copper, chrome, cobalt, nickel, titanium, niobium, molybdenum, silver, selenium etc.

What are the health benefits?
A main contributory cause of much of the ill health suffered today is the mineral deficient soils that bear our crops. Schindele's Mineralien provides a full spectrum of over 90 minerals & trace elements to make up for the deficit in our diets.
There are several groups of extremely healthy and long lived peoples around the world such as the Hunzas of Pakistan, and the Vilcabamba people of Ecuador. A number of Hunza men and women over 120 years old still work in the fields every day. What do they have in common? Mineral rich water.
Different from other mountain cultures is their cloudy grey water. It contains a fine rock dust created by the glaciers higher up. As they slowly slide across and grind the rock, the melting ice mixes with the rock dust creating a rock slurry that finds its way into streams and rivers. This mineral rich water is used for drinking and to irrigate soil and crops.
Amongst many native cultures it is known that when flooding occurs, mud and silt from the rivers mineralise pastures, replenishing deficiencies in the soil that have occurred through farming the land.
Our soil lacks in varying amounts, the very minerals and trace elements that we need for good health. Plants also require the same full spectrum to be strong and resist parasites. Modern agricultural methods of farming are very destructive. Fertiliser is used containing only three minerals, Nitrogen, Potassium and Phosphorus; this causes quick, forced growth, but does not provide balanced nutrition for plants.
