Barite / Barytes

What is Barite / Barytes ? Barite or Barytes  is chemically naturally occurring Barium Sulphate (BaSO4) with nodular particle structure. It receives its name from the Greek word “barys” which means “heavy.” This name is in response to barite’s high specific gravity of 4.5, which is exceptional for a nonmetallic mineral. The high specific gravity of barite makes it suitable for a wide range of industrial, medical and manufacturing uses.
