Barite Unique

This specimen is a unique formation of mass tabular blue barite crystals coming out of calcite druzy crystals embedded within the matrix. Weight of the specimen is 2.59lbs. Measures are 4.5 inches in width, 5.5 inches in height, and almost 3 inches in length.  

The “barite” part of the name of this crystal has its roots in “barus”, a Greek word which literally means ‘heavy’. Blue Barite is rare and less available compared to other types of barite. The mineral composition of Blue Barite is mainly barium sulfate, which gives it the bluish color making it related to the mineral family to which gemstones like Celestite, Anglesite, or Anhydrite belong to as well.

Blue Barite aids communication and is helpful for shock or trauma. Known as a magical stone, it may stimulate coincidences and can help your memory. It can be cathartic to the emotional self, allowing for release of trapped emotions and feelings, bringing calm and self-assurance to the inner state after removal of the pain.
