Blue Barite (sometimes spelled Baryte / barytes) is a mineral consisting of barium sulfate. Baryte is generally white or colorless (desert rose is an example of this!), but sometimes a gorgeous blue color and is the main source of the element barium. The barite group consists of barite, celestite, anglesite, and anhydrite. Energetically, it is thought to help you communicate with higher worlds, beings + higher self, said to be a stone of interdimentional travel. Said to "bring heaven + earth together". Healers believe it helps to cleanse + clears blockages of the higher chakras.
