Anhydrite

Anhydrite is one of the minerals that make up the rocks. Chemical structure similar to Gypsum but does not contain water. Formula is CaSO4.There is a sedimentary basin in large areas where sea water evaporates. It is usually found in salt deposits with gypsum next to it. Anhydrite may form on the coastline or tidal flat deposits caused by the evaporation of seawater.

Barite

The barium sulfate barite takes its name from the Greek word barys, which means “heavy” a reference to its high specific gravity. It has also been called heavy spar. Barite crystals are sometimes tinged yellow, blue, or brown. Golden barite comes from South Dakota. Crystals are well formed, usually either prismatic or tabular.

Feldspar Group Minerals

“Feldspar” is the name of a large organization of rock-forming silicate minerals that make up over 50% of Earth’s crust. They are discovered in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks in all components of the sector. Feldspar minerals have very comparable structures, chemical compositions, and bodily properties. Common feldspars consist of orthoclase (KAlSi3O8), albite (NaAlSi3O8), and anorthite (CaAl2Si2O8).
