Barite, the primary ore of barium, is a high-density mineral with a wide range of industrial uses. It occurs mainly as clusters of tabular crystals or white bladed masses, also in yellow, brown, grey and blue. Barite has a high specific gravity that causes it to be very heavy for a non-metallic mineral. Due to its high-density barite can block gamma-rays and x-rays.
