Did you know Melanin, the aromatic bio polymer and organic semiconductor responsible for human skin tone, the color of Black cats, Angus cattle, crickets and crows has a dollar value? It does. When we first looked into the dollar value of melanin in March 2014 it was listed as $353 a gram.

Marketing the Melanin is worth more than gold t-shirt
Melanin is worth over $395 a gram more than gold. The Afro official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2. The Red, Black and Green flag is rapidly approaching its 100th anniversary. This is a new era.

Since then melanin has increased in value nine times. Present at $459 a gram, melanin is worth more than gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, and coltan…COMBINED!!! A gram of gold is $61.02. Melanin is worth over $397 a gram more than gold. An ounce of gold is priced at $1,952.64 while an ounce of melanin is worth $14,688. A pound of melanin is worth $235,008. A kilo of gold is $61,020 but a kilogram of melanin is worth $459,000. Three kilos of melanin is worth $1,377,000. Knowing melanin is worth over $397 a gram more than gold can lead to an elevated sense of self esteem, self worth and healing from the emotional and psychological effects of the maafa which we refer to as Mchakato wa Uponyaji (the process of healing.)

Melanin Harvesting is a hoax

We have the power to restore justice to this planet. All we have to do is spread this knowledge a “Melanin is worth over $395 a gram more than gold” t-shirt for only $22.99 at http://www.cafepress.com

On a global scale, the dollar value of melanin is causing a quantum shift in awareness, perception and power. The shift is not occurring for everyone, however. There must be a willingness to grow. Be aware there is an awareness beyond the present state. Realize there are perceptions yet to be perceived. Let go of limitations. Those unwilling to do so will never know how evolution left them behind. The dollar value of melanin lets us know all we have is potential.

Update: Since we first looked into the price of melanin it has increased $9.50 a gram to $362.50 a gram. The melanin being sold comes from the ink of Sepia Officinalis, a cephalopod. Cephalopods like squids, octupus and cuttlefish squirt melanin loaded ink from their sacs as a smoke screen to camouflage their escape from predators.

Meme showing the dollar value of melanin in 2021 as being $459 a gram. That means melanin is worth over $395 a gram more than gold.

FYI, human beings are NOT earth’s only source of melanin!!!

The Mhotep Corporation uses its Keyamsha The Awakening brand to heighten perceptions and expand awareness. By producing content that engages, entertains and educates we create value for value relationships with our audience for mutual benefit. Mhotep is derived from the name of the architect and builder of the first pyramid in Kemet, so-called ancient Egypt. I formed the Mhotep Corporation in 2003 to produce and distribute 3D animation videos based on traditional African stories. Since then it has evolved to being a media production company including books. In a previous life I worked as a systems analyst developing solutions for government and multinational organizations. Born and educated in Washington, D.C. I have traveled to several places including Haiti, the Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, Nigeria (several times), Ethiopia (several times), Benin, Togo, and South Africa. I am married with three children.


    1. We recognize our true value. Our true worth is everlasting. A big part of this is sharing it with others so they know their true worth is the opposite of what they have been told.

    2. We thinks this means we do not need bling bling. We are bling bling. Your question alone means we arr awakening…having keyamsha events…which cause us to know we have inherited wealth and value. We are born with something special inside us. When we rrcognize our true worth our view of ourselves will change. That will change the way we think, triggering a change in our behaviot resulting in a change of the whole world. That will be a world where we know ourselves and love ourselves. We will know the maafa as a great disaster and ourselves as the survivors of the maafa.

    3. 1.) Melanin can be created in a lab for literally pennies. It is absolutely not $350+ dollars per gram. This is lunacy.

      2.) Even if it was expensive (it isn’t), the idea that harvesting it from dead human skin would be how it was acquired is absurd, from both a business and a practical standpoint.

      3.) You provide no source for this.

      In summation: you are the victim of a hoax.

      1. Do you have a source for melanin created in a lab? Be aware the patent in “synthetic” melanin is more of a marketing gimmick than anything else. Since the actual molecular structure of melanin is unknown “caveat emptor” applies. “Synthetic” melanin is based on a computed theory of melanin’s chemical structure.

  1. I heard that they take all the skin off black corpses except from the face and hands, scrape behind the ear canal and intestinal track, get the melanin, dry it out and make viagra , melatonin pills and paint for LCD screens. make super hard drives, etc. Its said thats what happened to the blacks in the Congo, and they harvested enough for the next 15 years or so. Melanin boosts the stregnth of anything you add it to/

    1. Whoever tells you that is delusional. You have been the victim of a hoax. It is a scam perpetrated by the same people who invented so-called “whiteness.” Further evidence of their delusional state is found in the book “The God Delusion.” Additionally, the notion of races is also being described as a delusion. There is no such thing as whiteness. Whiteness is not an empirical phenomenon existing in space and time. Melanin however, does exist. Melanin is $362.50 a gram. That is $300 a gram more than gold. Melanin is worth more than silver, gold, platinum, palladium and rhodium. The delusional people who invented the “whiteness” scam are afraid that people are learning about melanin and they are unable to stop it. So they invented the hoax of so-called “melanin thieves” hoping it will give them a delay in the inversion of the planet’s value system. The value system inversion is the path to return “Planet Melanin” to its natural state. People with melanin recognizing their true worth and value represents the millennial “end times.” Evidence of the concern with the end is evident in such things as the concept of security. They are obsessed with security because they are INsecure. Secure people and nations do not need a “Department of Homeland Security.” Additionally, there are among them people who are known as “preppers.” They are preparing for an end of the present state of things. People with fully operational melanocytes seeing their true worth and value will cause a shift in the worldwide economic system. The “preppers” will have to fend for themselves in ways which they have never had to since their ancestors were in the caves of Europe. However, if they would only study recent history they will see that this could be the best possible thing. We are entering into the age of “spears into plowshares.” Nothing built on lies was meant to survive.

      Remember: “There is nothing like the power of fully operational melanocytes.”

      1. Melanin being worth $300 a gram more than gold tends to get three reactions from highly melaninated people. Amazement from those who find it a positive thing. It seems those who find negativity appear to be suffering from post traumatic slavery syndrome. The third appear to fear the decline of Western Civilization is imminent should Black people find themselves awakened to the extent that they will experience a quantum shift in awareness, perception and power. Since you have presented no information to support your claims apparently you are in one of the latter two categories.

  2. I remember reading an article in Newsweek and I think Time had material on it too, when i was a kid. The article was about what drugs Ben Johnson and Jackie Joyner Kersee had used to boost their performance.The article explained that the hormone boosters they were using were made from human corpses.I thought that was so disgusting, the way they described how matter of factly they were trying to avoid the contagious aspects of using body fluids from corpses. That aspect pops out now and then, and then it elegantly disappears again, if you don`t look for it with some tenacity. Some years ago I read and saw presentations on huge corporations that harvest human organs/corpses. You see the athletes i mentioned earlier used what was ultimately melatonin from human corpses, according to the two periodicals. So the melatonin is harvested from melanated people, as nonmelanated people, over 85% have dormant pineal glands, and their lower gastric intestine does not contain as much melatonin, if i am not mistaken, likewise their skin. Now when you see the amounts of melatonin being introduced into products, I ask where are they getting it from? They used to say it was bovine/cow, but that doesn`t match the amounts as it takes around 2500 cows to produce 100 mg melatonin.

    Dead Africans or highly melanated people, on a huge stable scale that is what provides a steady supply of medical grade melatonin. I will continue in detail later. Anyone that can offset or discredit this angle on how melatonin is acquired, i would appreciate that so much, as I would really like to be wrong on this point:/
    It is proven that when Africans are stressed they produce more melanin. So keeping Africans in a perpetual state of stress gives the greatest yield of melanin. Now we look at the African as a crop too, and not just a beast of burden and pleasure. Not only that it also shortens their lifespan remarkably.Much headway has been made into encouraging the African opt for a diet that is very stressing, and not conducive to maintain a healthy body and mind. So this has led to many profitable businesses. Especially in areas where many Africans are concentrated where many Europeans reside.
    1. Big consumers/addicts of unhealthy products – profit
    2. Large segment suffer from, physical and mental ailments – Addicts/consumers of medication/drugs
    3. Crime – Profitable as inmates. The drugs,weapons,technical facility and slaughter zones are provided.
    4. Early and frequent death – High melanin yield, population culling.
    5. This is an industry which provides a huge employment base for those that provide, maintain and supervise this operation.

    Less political cohesion, disrupted family structures, productivity/fertility etc.

    We have not even touched onto the actual industry of specifically farming and harvesting Melanin.
    I am sorry this is quite a messy presentation, but its done off the keyboardcuff:).

    On a note : Bobby Hemmitt, refferred to The disappearance of many Africans cleared from areas prior to the Atlanta Olympics who were never seen or heard of again

    I must emphasize my motives for publishing this subject matter is not out of ill will, bitterness, envy, anger, hate, confusion, spite. No I want to be constructive and just. I would rather have we endevour to be human act as such and do not harm others.

    1. We invite you think about the fact melanin, the aromatic biopolymer and organic semiconductor that makes Black people black is worth more than gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium from a rational standpoint, for a moment. If what you are suggesting is true, and we have seen no evidence it is true, as long as people who effortlessly produce melanin as a part of a metabolic process are alive, there will be an endless supply of melanin, correct? Anything else would be as unintelligent as what reportedly happened to the goose who laid the proverbial golden (in this case melanin) egg.

      It is abysmally pathetic that at this point in time, people, such as yourself, continue to attempt to obfuscate the fact melanin, the aromatic biopolymer and organic semiconductor that makes Black people black, is worth more than gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium. We assert this is because they are obviously impaired by a melanin bias. To each his own.

      Had you considered the foregoing you would have recognized and at least given this post as thorough a reading as it seems you did the propaganda you provided in your comments. Then your comments would have been unnecessary. You would have seen that human beings are not the only source of melanin on this planet. Ghana’s goldfields are not the only source of gold on this planet. Egoli, so-called, Soweto is also a source of gold. The Niger Delta is not the only source of oil on this planet. Oil is also found in South Sudan. It is true melanin is produced with effortless ease in humans. It is just as true that melanin is produced with effortless ease by sepia officianalis, the common cuttlefish.

      Attempts at obfuscating the fact of melanin’s worth and value only reveals the insecurity which is prevalent in the mind of too many people today. Their melanin bias is a result of being aware a simple process of human metabolism produces intrinsic value. Awareness of such value in humans has sweeping implications for self-esteem, personal value and self worth. The possibility some humans effortlessly generate what could be considered the so-called “philosopher’s stone” alchemists were seeking has mind altering implications at the quantum level. The fact some humans produce melanin with effortless ease through a metabolic process more highly active in them than other human beings connotes a potential power shift unlike any ever experienced in documented human history.

      Had you put half as much effort into verifying the information in this post as you did in attempting to create an unfounded, irrational fear of nonexistent melanin thieves, you would have seen that cephalopod ink is the most accessible source of melanin on this planet, not human beings. In addition, you, like others before you, have provided no evidence suggesting that such myths have validity. What you have done is further energize the quantum field with awareness of melanin’s worth, value and power. The entire time you were assembling the comments you posted your mind was on fire with the implications of melanin’s value and worth becoming known world wide. I know. My mind started reeling with those same ideas months ago. The quantum field is alive with melanin power and has been so for at least six months now. You have a lot of catching up to do.

      What you have provided only emphasizes how thoroughly the quantum shift in awareness, perception and power has permeated your subconscious. The awareness has altered your brainwave patterns, though you may not know it. Over time it will begin to become part of the very neurons of you brain, thereby becoming part of who you are not just at the atomic level but at the subatomic and quantum level. There is no power like melanin power, cuz melanin power don’t stop. Up to now, awareness of melanin’s worth and power has triggered a fight or flight response in you based on fear. The quantum shift has happened and has been underway for over six months now. You may continue your efforts at distracting attention from the truth. You are already failing. You will continue to fail. You efforts will not bear fruit.

      The belief you need to obfuscate the facts presented in this post show that you know the power of melanin, but more so, you know the power of an idea. The idea melanin is more valuable than gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium being known worldwide gives you great fear and trepidation. You believe people who think like you do have no future in a world where everyone knows how valuable and important melanin is. That is unfortunate. A quantum shift is underway nonetheless. Awareness of melanin’s value and worth is spreading through the global brain on the quantum level, at the speed of thought, as you read this.

      Nonetheless, “Keep calm.” Melanin is worth $362.50 a gram. All is well. The sun is still projecting its energy towards this planet. Water is still wet. Fire is still hot. Gravity is still in effect. The sun still rises in the east and based on all past experience it will probably still set in the west. Truth crushed to earth is rising like a planted seed. The facts are speaking for themselves.

      With the truth in our hand we are ushering in the era when all the generations of humanity can be called blessed. “There are no heights to which we cannot climb by using the active intelligence of our own minds. Mind creates and as much as we desire we can have through the active intelligence of our own minds” Marcus Garvey tells us in his seminal essay “African Fundamentalism.” Active intelligence asked the question: How much is melanin worth? Six months ago the answer came. We were just as overwhelmed when we received the answer as you were when you learned of it. We were initially stunned into paralysis. As we began to complete our healing crisis, we wondered: “What do we do with this new found information?” We first created the graphic of the “Keep Calm” meme and began to share it. Then we created the post above. Then we shared it. It took three months to assemble a thought process through which our awareness produced the information on the post “Do White people exist.”

      Last year we reached nearly 6,000 became aware melanin is worth more than gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium. So far, we are on track to exceed the number reached to date. With current projections, by the end of this year we expect that somewhere upwards of a minimum of 20,000 people on the face of planet earth will have their consciousness raised by “the active intelligence of our own minds.”

      There are those who are unwilling to recognize nothing happens by accident in this universe. There are no spare parts according to Depak Chopra. Our intelligence is awakened. That is why this blog is entitled Keyamsha: The Awakening. Melanin is the product of a universe that provided us with all we need to be here, now, at this moment. Our ancestors survived the most brutal, vicious, sadistic, inhumane form of behavior ever in the history of the known universe, and we are not only still her to celebrate the simple fact: Melanin, the aromatic biopolymer that makes Black people black, including those who were told they were slaves, is worth 362.50 a gram. That is more than gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium. That is true whether you accept it or not. Melanin is a part of this universe whether you accept it or not.

      All the best to you my friend.

  3. The United States is the world’s biggest trader of products from human tissue, selling an estimated two million body-derived products a year. Yet, according to the report, the authorities don’t seem to know how much tissue is imported, where it comes from, or where it subsequently goes. Buying and selling human tissue is illegal in most countries, but paying service fees is permissible and the report says a single disease-free body can fetch tens of thousands of dollars.

    1. Which has nothing to do with the fact melanin is worth $300 a gram more than gold. Humans are not earth’s only source of melanin. Crows are black because of melanin. Angus cattle are black because of melanin. Cephalopods produce ink which is impregnated with melanin.

      1. The facts are not catchphrases. The facts are the facts whether anyone accepts them or not. The facts are repeated to assure anyone who reads them that we are fact based.

    1. Cephalopod ink is a dark pigment released into water by most species of cephalopod, usually as an escape mechanism. All cephalopods, with the exception of the Nautilidae and the Cirrina (deep-sea octopuses),[1] are able to release ink.

      The ink is released from the ink sacs (located between the gills) and is dispersed more widely by accompanying its release with a jet of water from the siphon. Its dark colour is caused by its main constituent, MELANIN. Each species of cephalopod produces slightly differently coloured inks; generally, octopuses produce black ink, squid ink is blue-black, and cuttlefish ink is a shade of brown.


    1. As brother Sankara Setu Mutanda suggested they have been harvesting body parts for years.. He is using a BOOK as evidence as opposed to a photo of some cattle that could easily be misinterpreted as actual evidence of melanin farming..
      There are, however, some extremely interesting and valid points in the post.. Thank you for sharing.
      Please remember that just because there are other sources of gold and oil doesn’t mean that Africa is no longer being robbed bare.. The greedy man takes from all sources available to him.. That includes the harvesting of melanin.

      1. Suggestions are not facts. Melanin is available in sources other than humans. Those who “suggest” melanin is being harvested from humans while other sources are available without incontrovertible evidence to support their claims are vibrating on the lower levels of spirit. Those willing to allow their spiritual vibration to rise in accordance with the new found awareness of melanin being 6 times more valuable than gold is a significant aspect of Mchakato wa uponyaji, process of healing from the Maafa. To present supposition and innuendo in the presence of actual factual information is nothing more than a failed attempt to obfuscate the truth. This is despite the fact truth crushed to earth is rising like a planted seed. We have heard all forms of distraction. From so-called “artificial melanin” to the melanin thieves. ENOUGH!!! At the present price of $373.50 a gram melanin is an extremely valuable molecule. That is no accident. the ancestors are letting us know that we should value ourselves. Marcus Garvey told us in his speech “The Work That Has Been Done:”

        We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery for thought others may free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is our only ruler; sovereign.

        Emancipation from mental slavery is not for everyone. Some will see the sun and say it looks like rain. So be it.

      2. One thing that Africa and Africans can not be robbed of is probably more valuable than any thing else….our humanity. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said during his trip to Jamaica in 1965 “In Jamaica I felt like a human being.” It has been well over 100 years since the Berlin Conference. We must look to heal our humanity at all levels. Those who divided Africa up according to their own ideas had no idea what they were seeing when they went there. Woe be to them. Be advised that we are currently in the midst of a worldwide skin cancer epidemic. What it means is little compared to the fact that those with the most melanin are the least affected.

      3. To date no one who has used the term “melanin harvesting” has presented any evidence to contradict the fact melanin is only being harvested from Sepia officinalis, the common cuttlefish.

      4. Why aren’t the melanin thieves hunting crows? They have melanin.

        Why are the melanin thieves not extracting melanin from Angus cattle? They have melanin.

        The primary source of melanin on earth today is sepia officianalis,the common cuttlefish. The ink of Cephalopods has melanin as its primary ingredient.

      5. Those who desire to connect fear, uncertainty and doubt to the fact melanin is worth $300 a gram more than gold and has 6 times the value of gold do so out of fear, uncertainty and doubt about their future. They see the “arc of the moral universe” “bends toward justice” and not towards them. From our perspective the universe is expressing through the value of melanin that we are precious, sacred and valuable to it. It has done this in a manner irrefutable by all means. Hence, the last ditch effort to sway those who may not use the cosmic and quantum angle to view this information.

  4. What if the dollar value of melanin was supposed to alter our mental state so that we will deliberately and intentionally restore peace justice righteousness order balance harmony and reciprocity to this planet? What if this information has as its purpose to transform us spiritually mentally emotionally and psychologically into the people who will usher in the era when all humanity is blessed? What would happen if this information led to the manifestation of a grand racial hierarchy upon which the sun would never set?

  5. I LOVE HOW YOU EXPLAIN EVERYTHING VIA THE COMMENTS IN A VERY DETAILED “DUIH” KIND OF WAY!!!! I had some of those same questions wondering if they were harvesting from our dead and why aren’t we recieveing that money however now I know that it is not likely that they are…… (even though our organs are more expensive than oour white counter parts…. we should get that money buttttt ig)…… KEEP THE PEOPLE INFORMED LOVE THIS PAGE

    1. Jenni, thank you for your comment. We think it is important for everyone to learn as much about melanin as possible. We should go so far as becoming “melaninologists.” When it first became apparent melanin was worth over $300 a gram more than gold it was clearly important. So important that some people felt it was necessary to miseducate people about melanin.

      1. About the organs…if the organs are as we have been led to believe they are…it would seem that compatibility would be a problem. Anyone whose internal organs were not compatible with ours would probably not receive a transplant well. People have problems with matching organ donors as it is. If our organs are so much more expensive, then that would imply a difference and a high probability for


        matching. Our organs should only match our people. Anybody else would not be a match for our organs, if everything is as we are being told. Just a few thoughts.
