Peravadhanulu, A and Prasad Rao, P D and Mathur, G P and Altekar, V A (1979) Gypsum and Selenite. In: Monograph on Ores and Minerals of India - Beneficiation and Agglomeration Techniques for Industrial and Economic Exploitation. CSIR -NML Jamshedpur, Jamshedpur, pp. 333-339.



Gypsum and Selenite have the same chemical composition but differ in crystallisation habit. Selenite is usually crystalline and the association of the impurities is superficial which are eliminated by washing. Gypsum is fine grained in nature and is beneficiated by flotation only. Both the minerals find extensive use in the ferti-lizer industry and a minor quantity in the manufacture of plaster of paris and cement industry.
