Device of Ancient origin, with the power to rejuvenate tissue, restore dead life, and even animate non-living tissue.

The device was used by the Goa'uld Telchak to develop the sarcophagus technology thousands of years ago. It is incredibly powerful, even capable of killing humans or driving them mad in close proximity. The device is cube-shaped, covered with inscriptions.

Anubis sought the Ancient healing device after Telchak created the sarcophagus. Anubis defeated Telchak but never obtained the device, which was hidden away beneath a waterfall in Honduras for many untold years, where its affects became the source of the Fountain of Youth mythology. Later, after he ascended, Anubis gained access to the Ancients' technology and was able to construct his own version, which he used to animate an army of Kull warriors.

The Tok'ra have also long sought the healing device, in the hopes of using it to perfect the sarcophagus technology, which they do not use because of its negative long-term effects. After Daniel Jackson and Bill Lee found the device in Central America, Earth and the Tok'ra used it to develop a weapon that can counter-act the device's life-giving energy, and thus defeat a Kull warrior.
