According to Wikipedia:

Deposits are known to occur in strata from as early as the Permian age.[5] Gypsum is deposited in lake and sea water, as well as in hot springs, from volcanic vapors, and sulfate solutions in veins. Hydrothermal anhydrite in veins is commonly hydrated to gypsum by groundwater in near surface exposures.
Hope that helps. ;)
