Barium Sulfate has excellent lightfastness.
Although barium is a heavy metal and is toxic, barium sulfate has very low solubility in water, and is not easily absorbed biologically. Barium sulfate is used as a contrast medium in radiology.
Barium sulfate is the principle component of baryte, a common mineral. It has many industrial uses. John Dalton's discovery (1803) of a process to reduce barium sulfate to barium sulfide was instrumental in the development of the theory of atoms.
