Angelite


Geology and History


Angelite (Anhydrite) is an anhydrous mineral of Calcium Sulfate.  It is not isomorphous with the orthorhombic Baryte (barium) & Celestite (strontium) sulfates, which might be assumed from the chemical formulas.  Angelite is most often located in evaporate deposits with gypsum and was first discovered in 1794 in a salt mine near Hall in Tirol.  The name Anhydrite was given by A.G. Werner in 1804, due to its absence of water in crystallisation which is contrasted to the presence of water in gypsum.

Distinct crystals formations are rare, this mineral usually forms in large cleavage masses.  When these masses are blue it is then referred to as Angelite.  When exposed to water it absorbs the water and transforms into Gypsum.  This transformation is reversible.  Gypsum or Calcium Sulfate hemihydrate forms Anhydrite when heated to 200C under normal atmospheric conditions.  This mineral is commonly associated with Halite, Chalcopyrite, Pyrite, Galena and Molybdenite.
