A key feature in the formation of Hydrogen Silica Natural Water VanaH is the unique geological structure of Mt. Fuji.
Mt. Fuji is made up of seven basalt layers created by repeated eruptions.
Rain and snow that fall on the majestic Fuji slowly penetrate through those basalt layers, 1,000 meters through the earth over many years, forming groundwater deep below the surface.
For that reason, spring water from the base of Mt. Fuji contains a high concentration of natural hydrogen and is rich in vanadium, for which it is recently gaining much attention.
Standing taller than 3,000 meters, Mt. Fuji is a solitary peak facing the sea. The mountain is battered by moisture laden winds, creating an environment in which there is a lot of rain and snow, with annual precipitation being as much as 2.2 billion tons. Precipitation on the upper half of the mountain, in particular, is thought to reach 3,000 millimeters per year. Although ground near the summit has been confirmed to contain permafrost, which from Honshu northward is only found in the Daisetsuzan mountains of Hokkaido, Mt. Fuji has no conspicuous rivers. For that reason, the majority of the large amount of rain and snowmelt penetrates into the mountain, eventually flowing out from springs at the base.
