Selenium is a rare mineral. It is amorphous in nature and has a brick-red powder appearance. When melted, rapidly it forms black, vitreous form, which is usually sold commercially as beads. The most stable and dense form of selenium is gray selenium, which has a hexagonal crystal lattice structure consisting of helical polymeric chains. Selenium forms two oxides, namely, selenium dioxide and selenium trioxide. Selenium dioxide is formed when elemental selenium reacts with oxygen and selenium trioxide is formed when anhydrous potassium selenate reacts with sulfur trioxide. Salts of selenous acids are called selenites.
