The Timberlake Rose Rock Museum showcases the official rock of Oklahoma, a reddish-brown sand-barite stone that is naurally formed into a rose. Indian lore states that the rose rock was God's gift to the Cherokee for their long journey on the Trail of Tears. Braves' blood and the maidens' tears fell to the ground, producing a stone in the shape of a rose. This unusual rock can only be found in central Oklahoma.
The museum, located south of Norman in Noble, displays and sells barite rose rocks in many shapes and sizes.
