Healite - also known as The First Life Stone - is a piece of the Earth from The Cradle of Life in South Africa.
This ancient land was the home of the First Life on this planet, a bacteria, and is called the Cradle of Life by the scientific community.
The 'cradle' is situated between Pretoria and Barberton in South Africa, and is near "the Cradle of Mankind" where the most ancient human remains have been found (read more about this at Healite.Org)
Healite clears physical pain, at least in degrees, and is best used by placing it against the skin, directly on the body, for it is believed to absorb pain. Healite must be cleared of the energy it has absorbed by any of several methods: contact with Selenite, smudging with Sage smoke, rinsing in running water, or laying atop the soil of a potted plant.
People often ask "Will it work if I just carry it in my pocket?" Yes, it will, and there are testimonials confirming it.... but we still encourage it to be taped onto the body at the source of pain or held on by some other means that will keep it there for 12-24 hours; it should be cleansed after a period of use this long.
The make-up of Healite typically includes: Calcite, Dolomite, Diopside, Lizardite Serpentine, Phlogopite Mica plus minor amounts of: Copper, Chlorine, Barium, Aluminum and Troilite
(Troilite is a rare iron sulphide mineral found in meteorites. This new evidence lends strongly toward a theory for an extra-terrestrial origin of the First Life on Earth, the ancient bacteria now fossilized in Healite stones. The Human Genome Project estimates 40 of our human genes to be of bacterial origin! The fossil bacteria in Healite may be our ancient ancestor, and it may be this ancient primordial life force still lingering in its skeletal remains... that is the source of the stone's amazing energy! )
The ancient life forms fossilized in Healite appear to be 'Coccoidal Bacteria' under 75x and greater magnification, and are estimated to be between 2.5 and 3.5 billion years old, around the time the First Life appeared on the planet, simple bacterias.
On a personal note... I am happy to report that I have used Healite several times now for the following: back pain, leg/muscle pain, tense shoulders, an injured shoulder and a headache that just wouldn't shift.
Every time, the pain was either substantially reduced, or - most common - reduced to the point of barely noticing any discomfort. The headache was gone within half an hour, and 3 times the severe back discomfort was also completely eliminated. I use either kinesiology tape or medical tape (both easily obtained from chemists or supermarkets) to tape a large piece or two to the area of pain.
I also keep my pieces of selenite on one of my Selenite Charging Plates when not being used, however the medium and large flat stones will be sent to you with a small piece of selenite to keep the piece charged and clear.
