Barite-83.jpg
Barite is a mineral that contains large amounts of barium. Barite is spelled Baryte in Britain. It is often found alongside hematite. The name "barite" comes from the Greek word "βαρύς" which means heavy. A mineral consisting of barium sulfate, it most often occurs in hydrothermal veins and as veins in limestones. It is a relatively inert mineral with a high density. It is the primary ore of barium. The most common use of barite is as a weighting agent in drilling muds.
