Barite Covered in Pyrite

This specimen is stalactitic barite covered in druzy pyrite clusters. It weighs 0.88 lbs. Measurements are 4 inches in length, slightly cover 1.5 inches in width, and 2.3/4 inches in height. 

Barite crystallizes as tabular crystals, aggregates, plate-like masses, fibrous masses, and occasionally, stalactites. The mineral occurs in a range of colors such as blue, white, grey, yellow, brown, and a brownish-rose. Baryte that is used as an aggregate in a "heavy" cement is crushed and screened to a uniform size. Most barite is ground to a small, uniform size before it is used as a filler or extender, an addition to industrial products, in the production of barium chemicals or a weighting agent in petroleum well drilling mud.

Barite is thought to assist with one's ability in linking us to our highest purpose and higher self. Barite encourages the mind-body connection. It restores, heals, and re-establishes the mind-body connection. This stone will make you aware of the feelings and circumstances that are preventing you from moving forward. It heightens the urge for honest self-evaluation and dispels delusions. Pyrite is a protective stone, it can help to keep out the negative vibrations of pollutants at the physical level, due to an energy field which it creates within the aura. It is a unique protector and is an excellent stone to keep in one's possession when performing dangerous work, it helps to keep away all forms of negative vibrations and can work to allay physical danger.
