Gypsum refers to a mineral composed of calcium sulphate. It is a very soft mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate, with the chemical formula CaSO4?2H2O. Likewise, gypsum is a monoclinic mineral, 8[CaSO4.2H2O]; colorless to white in crystals, but massive beds may range from red to yellow to brown, gray, or black; the most common natural sulfate; commonly associated with rock salt (halite) and anhydrite; forms beds and lenses interstratified with limestone, shale, and clay, esp. in rocks of Permian to Triassic age; also in volcanic fumarolic deposits; an accessory mineral in metalliferous veins.
