Barite

Barite, or Baryte, (BaSO4) is a mineral consisting of barium sulfate. The Barite group also includes Celestine, Anglesite and Anhydrite. Barite by itself is normally white or colorless, it is the main source of barium.

Barite is generally easy to identify. It is one of just a few nonmetallic minerals with a specific gravity of four or higher. Combine that with its low Mohs hardness (2.5 to 3.5) and its three directions of right angle cleavage, and the mineral can usually be reliably identified with just three observations. 

Our Barites are from Romania, England, USA, Germany, Spain, Peru, Canada, Poland, France, China, Russia, Namibia, Congo, Italy, Morocco, Slovaquia. We have over 100 specimens available for sale. You can see for yourself below.
