Along with Elemental, this is the best Materia in the game so it's no shock to discover that you can only ever obtain one of them. When set in a linked slot with another Magic Materia, spells will be cast on all enemies/allies at a reduced effect based on the Rank. One of the most useful applications for this Materia is with the Healing Materia to cure all of your party members at once however Barrier is another good choice to increase your party's defenses or using elemental attack spells to assault an entire enemy party with one cast.
