Barite is a mineral composed of barium sulphate – BaSO4, and is derived from the Greek word “βαρύς” (heavy). It is usually colourless or milky white, but can be almost any colour, depending on the impurities trapped in the crystals during their formation. Barite is relatively soft, measuring 3-3.5 on Moh’s scale of hardness. It is unusually heavy for a non-metallic mineral. The high density is responsible for its value in many applications. Barite is chemically inert and insoluble. The American Petroleum Institute (API) has established specifications for use in drilling.
