More About Rose Rock Birth

The dusty rose rock (or barite rose)  is rare in most of the world but is found abundantly along a 70 mile strip through Oklahoma reaching from Guthrie to Noble.  A Cherokee legend claims that, at the end of their journey from Georgia to Oklahoma, the Great Spirit transformed a rock from the weary tears of His people into a rose that would never die–as a sign that He would never abandon them.
