Barite is a mineral composed of barium sulfate (BaSO₄). It typically forms in sedimentary environments, often as a result of hydrothermal activity. Barite crystals can grow in various shapes, including tabular, prismatic, or bladed formations. The color of barite can vary, ranging from white to gray, yellow, brown, blue, or even red.

Barite is commonly found in deposits associated with sedimentary rocks, such as limestone and dolostone. It can occur in veins, fractures, and cavities within these rocks. Notable locations for barite include China, India, the United States, Morocco, Mexico, and Peru.

Metaphysically, barite is considered a stone of purification and protection, helping to shield against negative energies. Some believe that barite can stimulate the third eye chakra, enhancing intuition and awareness. It is often used in meditation practices to promote a sense of serenity and connection to higher realms. As with any metaphysical properties, individual experiences and interpretations may vary, so it's important to trust your own intuition when working with barite or any other crystal.
