Product Details

Barite,also spelled “baryte”, is a mineral composed of barium sulfate (BaSO4). It receives its name from the greek word "barys" which means "heavy." This name is in response to barite's high specific gravity of 4.5, which is exceptional for a nonmetallic mineral. China is the leading producers of barite, and  also has  the largest reserves. We have abundant mineral resources to meet any of your need.
