Description of Baryta Carbonica
Baryta carbonica is barium carbonate, that is, it is the barium salt of carbonic acid. They are rhomboid crystals, insoluble in water, soluble in chlorides, ammonium nitrates and acids (except sulfuric). The mines of Witherite, the mineral from which it is obtained, are found in many European locations, such as in England and Austria, and American, as in the USA and Canada.
The barium ion is extremely poisonous, as is barium carbonate, which is toxic to the body; barium sulfate, on the other hand, is not toxic. For this reason and for its X-ray opacity, it is used in radiology as a contrast medium for the examination of the digestive system.

The homeopathic remedy Baryta Carbonica is obtained by shredding barium carbonate with lactose and subsequent dilutions and dynamizations in hydroalcoholic solution.
