Transcript of Barium Sulfate!

BaSO4, in case you're wondering Barite a.k.a. Baryte a.k.a. Barium Sulfate! Physical Appearances! Streak: White
(boring!) Colors found in:
Colorless, white, blue,
green, yellow, and red (Derived from an extrremely corny song) W.W.B.D: What would Barite do? No, not the unbreakable stuff in Minecraft if that's what you're thinking, nerds. Bore better into bedrock with Barite mud! Everyone from Joe Shmoe and Mary Sue use it to dig, dig, dig! White again for a color? Jeez, this is bland. Barite is also used as a pigment in paint, to get a white-ish color. Insert disclaimer of danger here. More Physical Aspects of Barite! Believe it or not, that's quite disgusting! Barite is also given as a drink, to help X-rays take pictures of the internal organs. Ooh, pretty colors!
Much better, don't you think? Places where one could find such a mineral Georgia Nevada South Africa Thanks for viewing! Somewhat. It's kinda vitreous to the point that it's pearly. Is it shiny? Yes, of course it can. Don't ask questions like a 5-year old. Can it break? But how? Well, it has fracture, meaning that it breaks irregularly. Because technology. Now, as a parting word, the crystal shape of this thing is pretty much orthorhombic, or in layman's terms, I DON'T KNOW! Aww, it can't zoom anymore than this! Why is that? Ooh, I like this one! But on a further, and less disturbing note, Barite is necessary to create paper and rubber.
