Gypsum is a very soft mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate, with the chemical formula CaSO4·2H2O. Chemical structure Heating gypsum above approximately 150°C (302°F) partially dehydrates the mineral by driving off exactly 75% of the water contained in its chemical structure. CaSO4·2H2O + heat → CaSO4·½H2O + 1½H2O (steam) The partially dehydrated mineral is called calcium sulfate hemihydrate or calcined gypsum (commonly known as plaster of...

Selenite (chemical formula: CaSO4·2H2O) is a hydrous calcium sulfate, meaning it is composed of oxygen, sulfur, hydrogen, calcium and water.

The thin crystals can be slightly flexible, but will snap if bent too far. Some crystals found in Kentucky have grown in severely curved patterns and flower-like petals. In some very...
