Selenite crystals in the sediments off Saurashtra Coast

N.H. Hashimi

Abstract



The occurrence of euhedral crystals of selenite in the inner shelf silty clay sediments off Saurashtra, Gujarat, India has been recorded. The possible environmental conditions responsible for the formation of these crystals has been discussed and it is tentatively concluded that the selenite developed at or beneath the sediment-water interface as an early diagenetic mineral
