Once considered a "nuisance product" from the manufacture of hydrochloric acid, synthetic anhydrite created from this process is now dried in kilns and used for many applications. The English sculptor Ophelia Gordon Bell carved this plaque depicting an anhydrite kiln from a piece of anhydrite. The carving now resides at the Catalyst Science Discovery Centre in Widnes, UK.
