Description: 

Basilisk Healing Agent is a type of self-healing concrete that repair cracks.  Bacterial spores and calcium lactate are embedded in the concrete mixture.  If the concrete cracks and water reaches the spores, they germinate.  When the growing bacteria digest the calcium lactate, they produce CO2.  The CO2 combines with calcium ions to form calcium carbonate which seals up the cracks.
