        Recent exploration has established that the Sweetwater district, well known for its residual barite, contains significant Mississippi Valley-type (MVT) fluorite-barite-sphalerite mineralization at depth. These minerals are hosted in the upper Knox Group (Lower Ordovician) carbonate sequence, which is composed of limestone, medium- to coarse-grained dolomitized Cited by: 6. The barite crystals on this specimen have formed as thin, bladed crystals, in a luminous blue color.. $ Add to Cart. Add to Wish List. Add to Compare.

      Roberto C. Dante, in Handbook of Friction Materials and their Applications, Barium sulfate: barite. A special mention must be given to barite, i.e., a mineral composed of BaSO 4, which is the most common filler with a high density of g cm − 3, used in friction materials both for the high density, which allows compounders to utilize low volumes, and low costs.

      barite (bâr`īt), barytes (bərī`tēz) [New Lat., from barium], or heavy spar, a white, yellow, blue, red, or colorless mineral. It is a sulfate of barium, BaSO 4, found in nature as tabular crystals or in granular or massive form and has a high specific mineral is widely distributed throughout the world. Barite (Barytes) Colourless, white, yellow, brown, grey, blue, etc.; colourless in transmitted light (also tinted yellow, brown, green, blue, etc.) Vitreous, Pearly. Specific Gravity: Crystal System: Named in by Dietrich Ludwig Gustav Karsten from the Greek βάρυζ, heavy, due to its unusual heaviness for a non-metallic mineral.
