High-grade Barite is very rare primarily produced in a lab today. It is used in many expensive applications such as paints, plastics and pharmaceuticals, for example, the Blanc Fixe market (requires 99%+ pure powered barite) CIF East Coast USA, currently sells for $20,000 / tonne. 

In its purest form, high grade Barite is widely used to block radiation in diagnostic imaging applications such as X-rays and CT scans which allow clear diagnostics of soft tissue. 

The high grade Barite industry is currently 100% reliant upon imports from China. There are no high grade barite producers in Canada and the USA today.
