Baryte, also spelled Barite, can be found in many colours and many locations around the world. Baryte Roses are an unusual formation, and may be confused with Gypsum Desert Roses, although the blades are much larger. It was first named in 1800 after the Greek word for heavy, alluding to its unusual heaviness for a non-metal mineral.
