Gypsum Gypsum is a luxury resource in Civilization VI. It is usually found on Plains, or exceptionally on Desert Hills.


Gypsum Gypsum's natural +1 bonus to Gold Gold is useful, and its Production Production bonus becomes quite impressive with a Quarry and some technological research. Cities that are lucky enough to secure it early on will become productive powerhouses.

Civilopedia entry[]

Hard, but relatively easy to carve, gypsum is a sulfate, evaporate mineral found in deposits in sedimentary rock. A fine-grained, white or lightly tinted variety – alabaster – was used for sculptures and monuments by the ancient Egyptians, Mesopotamians, Romans, the Byzantines, and English during the Middle Ages. Fairly common, gypsum can be ground into a powder and used as fertilizer, to make plaster, and even in the preparation of various foods (bread, beer, and mead for instance), shampoos, and creams. There are few things in civilization as useful as gypsum.
