Gypsum (often sold as selenite) and Selenite (much more clear than gypsum) 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.
