what is Gypsum ?

Gypsum is composed of calcium sulfate (CaSO4) and water (H2O), i.e. Calcium Sulphate Dihydrate (CaSO4.2H2O).

Gypsum is found in several crystalline forms. It is found in many parts of the world. Gypsum is a sedimentary mineral. It is found in layers that were formed under salt water millions of years ago. The water evaporated and left the mineral. Among the gypsum layers, there is also a limestone or clay stone.

Gypsum has several variety names that are widely used in the mineral trade.
