  • The mineral name Celestite comes from the latin Caelestis, meaning celestial or heavenly. The name refers to the grey-blue translucent color of the crystals.
  • The mineral name Barite comes from the Greek word Barytes, meaning heavy. It comes from the high specific gravity of the material, which makes it an excellent weighting agent in drilling muds.
