Dream Realization Stone

Barite/Barium/Barytes…Discovered roughly a mere two hundred years ago, it was often used as a stone of protection.  A mineral which is generally colorless it is often tinged with colors such as blue, brown, grey, yellow and/or red.  The name Barite finds its roots in the Greek word of “barys” with is meaning is to insinuate weight or ‘heavy’. It was used to add weight to oil wells during drilling to keep the oil down in the drill hole as opposed to having it gushing out and being wasted.

The early 20th century scientist found that barium (or Barite) was able to be used as a barrier against the more dangerous x-ray procedure as well as ultraviolet radiation and radioactivity.

One form commonly called a Barite Rose often occurs with a white, brown or reddish tinge to them, in Native American cultures this is known as a ‘desert rose’, and are believed to be gifts from spirits who have come in the night to carve the stones as gifts of remembrance.
