A schematic spatial model of an earthquake nucleation is analyzed, and the three stages of the process are identified. Accordingly, the electromagnetic radiations emitted by the fracturing phenomena accompanying each stage are analyzed and it is demonstrated, that the changes of parameters in the persistent specific shape of these radiations during the stages are significant. Specifically, we analyze radiation changes in frequency, directionality and amplitude together with their relations to the fractures' properties across the nucleation process. These results allow us to present a possible method of forecasting, several hours before earthquakes of large magnitudes.
