Magnesium Sulfide

Magnesium sulfide is colorless to brown crystal powder, which is sulfide of magnesium. It is of sodium chloride type structure and the chemical property is similar to other  ionic type sulfide compounds as sodium sulfide, barium sulfide and calcium sulfide. Magnesium metal and pure sulfur are the raw materials.  It dissolve in diluted hydrochloric acid, however MgS crystal react with water slowly.
