We've put 3 pieces of Barite up for sale - all 3 are from here in the UK and they each show some of the many forms that Barite can take. Even though they all come from the same North Yorkshire / Cumbria region, each one has a separate crystal formation !
This is No3 and comes from the Wet Grooves mine, Carperby-cum-Thoresby near Richmond, North Yorkshire.
Barite crystals from Carperby are quite sought after as they have that very pointed, angular crystal formation and a deep brown/green colouring. Also, their angular crystals often show a darker edging and a lighter, sometimes see through, middle.
Wonderful shape and colour.

Barite Properties and Meaning
Crystal Healing Properties, Metaphysical and Gemstone Meaning
Barite is beneficial both for the brain and for our memory too. It stimulates our vision, calms the stomach, soothes the nervous system and helps with sore throats. It helps us when we need to detoxify or to remove toxins from the body. Barite helps us when we are suffering from chronic fatigue and also assists us in recovering from addictions.
Barite is a very motivating stone, ideal for cleansing and rebalancing the entire chakra system, and one which provides us with the incentive to "go for" our dreams without restraint. It releases old and trapped emotions, fears and obsessions, that may have been repressed for a very long while, and in clearing these, allows us to attain personal freedom for ourselves. With Barite we no longer have to be at other peoples beck and call, we do not have to conform to the ideas of others, nor do we have to think what our group thinks. We can overcome shyness, organise and focus our mental abilities and express our own thoughts. Barite also enhances friendship, harmony and love and helps us to better see where our boundaries lie. It also provides us with a better insight into any relationships we may be in.
Barite helps us in connecting to the highest guidance and in channeling high frequency energies for use in healing. It stimulates dreaming and also helps us to recall our dreams more easily. When meditating with Barite it helps us to connect with our angels and our spirit guides. If we experience visions, it helps us to better communicate what it was that we saw. Barite helps us to see what our own spiritual purpose is and how we can attain that purpose here on Earth.
