  Strontium for bone health
In addition to its antiresorptive activity, strontium was found to have anabolic activity in bone, and thus may have significant beneficial effects on bone balance in normal and osteopenic animals.
These studies, the benefits of strontium ranelate (reducing fracture risk by as much as 50%) and the history of strontium in medical practice were discussed as an editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine, January 29th, 2004.
Strontium is available as strontium carbonate, strontium chloride, strontium sulfate, strontium gluconate and strontium citrate.

Celestite and strontianite are the chief ores of strontium.
Principal uses of strontium compounds are in pyrotechnics (chiefly the nitrate) and in greases (the hydroxide).
Strontium was first recognized as distinct from barium in 1790 by A. Crawford in a sample of its carbonate from a mine near Strontian, Scotland; his finding was later confirmed by T. Hope, M. Klaproth, and others.

Ingested strontium is distributed in the body in three compartments: plasma extracellular fluid; soft tissue and superficial zone of bone tissue; and bone itself (El Solh and Rousselet, 1981).
Strontium causes adverse effects on bone by substituting for calcium in the hydroxyapatite crystal during bone calcification or by displacing calcium from existing calcified matrix (Skoryna, 1984; Kshirsagar, 1985).

 Method for recovery and conversion of strontium sulfate to strontium carbonate from low and medium grade celestite ores ...
Strontium is a relatively rare alkaline-earth metal commonly found as insoluble sulfate, carbonate, silicate and phosphate deposits in the earth's crust.
The strontium sulfate is usually converted to the carbonate form which finds a variety of uses in the electronics and glass industries, particularly glass for use in television tubes where low transmission of x-rays is desired.
The strontium sulfate containing residue is washed and then treated with ammonium carbonate added in a slight excess to the stoichiometric value of the strontium sulfate present in the celestite ore. This treatment converts the strontium sulfate into strontium carbonate which, being relatively insoluble, remains out of solution.
