Selenite of Morocco. Selenite, satin spar, and gypsum flower are four varieties of the mineral gypsum. all four varieties show obvious crystalline structure. The four "crystalline" varieties of gypsum  sometimes grouped together and called selenite. The similarity of names comes from both substances  named from the Ancient Greek word for the Moon.


The etymology of selenite is through Middle English selinete, from Latin Selenite, from Greek selēnitēs (lithos). literally, stone of the moon, from selēnē (Moon). The ancients had a belief that certain transparent crystals waxed and waned with the moon. From the 15th century, "selenite" referred  to the variety of gypsum that occurs in transparent crystals or crystalline masses.
