This question already has an answer here:

I have once come across a material/ substance/ compound, or something, that cuts off objects from Earth's gravitational pull.

In other words, it would keep the object suspended in the air and will not allow it to touch the ground, hence, we can say that this is a barrier between the object and the earth's gravity.

Can you please give me the name and properties of this material / substance / compound / gas / or what ever it is?

    $\begingroup$ The material/substance/compound you came across most likely has the properties of a hallucinogen. $\endgroup$ – Alfred Centauri Apr 12 '15 at 3:06

    $\begingroup$ Come on guys. When somebody has no idea of what is going on and asks an honest question about it, how does mocking him help? $\endgroup$ – mmesser314 Apr 12 '15 at 5:36

As Jimmy360 said, no such a material exists. You must have been experiencing something else, such as levitation by magnets, flux pinning/quantum locking/quantum trapping, or some other principle that made you think you saw a material that made a barrier with gravity. I am not sure where you saw this "gravity barrier" material, but it could have been a magic trick played by somebody(even somebody that isn't a magician) where there may have been a hidden string or other object.
