The lattice constants of a synthetic BaSO4 and fourteen natural barite samples from the Kresevo area (Central Bosnia) were determined by X-ray powder diffraction. The natural samples contained from 0.3-17.6 mole % SrSO4, and negligible concentrations of Ca and Pb (<0.03 and 0.02 wt. %, respectively), thus representing almost pure (Ba,Sr)SO4 solid solutions.

The diffraction lines of most natural samples were broadened in relation to those of synthetic BaSO4. This results from obvious compositional heterogeneity, e.g. the heterogeneous distribution of strontium, as is clearly observed from Sr variation patterns across a surface of the barite obtained by proton microprobe analysis. Nevertheless, the present values of unit-cell parameters are in agreement with those of synthetic (Ba,Sr)SO4 solid solutions documented in the literature.

It has been proven that the interplanar spacing d004 may be used for determination of the Sr content of natural barites; the absolute error varies from ±0.3 mole % SrSO4 (for homogeneous samples having the diffraction line 004 clearly resolved in spectral doublet components) up to ±0.5 mole % SrSO4 (for the samples with compositional heterogeneity having a broadened and relative poorly defined diffraction line 004).
