Alkaline earth metal compounds—carbonates, sulfates, silicates—are abundant in minerals such as dolomite (calcium and magnesium carbonate), epsomite (magnesium sulfate) and baryte (barium sulfate). The solubilities of these compounds vary widely, depending on the metal. Are there any patterns or trends in the solubility behavior of alkaline earth metal compounds?
