  • Another name for barium carbonate. Barium dissolves so easily into air that it is difficult to handle in pure form. The carbonate is a pasty, white powder. This describes quite well the uses. As a remedy it helps for being behind in maturity, a global underdevelopment of personality or later in life senility in the elderly. Ideally barium should connect with air, with the astral world, the soul world, the future. When it does not it becomes heavy, white, colorless.
