ORMUS, also known as ORME, M-state elements, White Powder Gold, Monatomic Gold, Manna and/or the Philosopher's Stone, was discovered in 1975 by Arizona farmer David Hudson. He discovered some material in his soil that he had never seen before. Hudson laid it out to dry in the hot Arizona sun so he could have it analyzed. What happened next was absolutely remarkable: the material exploded in a big flash of light and disappeared! But when he dried it without the use of sunlight it didn't disappear.
