Caption: Barite, barium sulfate, is an extremely common mineral that forms excellent crystals in mines throughout the world, as well as large massive beds. Ground-up barite is important in the drilling of oil wells, but crystals are popular with collectors and occur in many colors. Important barite crystal localities exist in many parts of of the world, and fine crystals occur in the Gaskin Mine in Pope County, Illinois.
