Excerpt from Plaster, Overburnt Gypsum and Hydraulic Gypsum According to the statements found in the most re cent literature on hydraulic gypsum (floor-gypsum, ooring-plaster), this modification of calcined gypsum may be brie y summed up to be an anhydrite of gyp sum, calcium sulphate, which under the microscope in nitric acid shows the needle-crystals of the half hydrate, which has the same composition as the soluble anhydrite and therefore must be regarded as an isomorphous modification of it, which, further more, forms between the temperatures of 400 and 600 centigrade and possesses the remarkable ability not to assume the temperature of its surroundings, if the latter surpasses 600 centigrade and which ulti mately dissolves in the water with which it is mixed in the same manner as plaster of Paris, though more slowly, and crystallizes as di-hydrate. The following description of carefully conducted investigations will show how far the real properties of hydraulic gypsum differ from the above summary from modern literature.
