Contact with this mineral leads to hair loss, damage to peripheral nerves, and, in the worst cases, even death. The crystalline basement rock of the country is grouped as the Nigerian Province, a southern continuation of the central Hoggar reactivated basement.

    In the southeast, poorly bedded sandy shale alternates with layers of sandstone and sandy limestone, containing ammoniteradiolarianechinoid and gastropod fossils. Labradorite Labradorite is a feldspar mineral that sometimes exhibits an iridescent play-of-color. Although in general only sand is collected, sometimes other samples from other materials are collected too such as crushed rocks, mud, soils, etc. The criteria for collecting sand can be various: colors, location, mineralogy composition etc. In granite the crystals of the different minerals are actually visible to the naked eye, giving it its characteristic speckled appearance, as in the picture to the right.

    We will sketch the forces now concerned in the formation of rocks and rock-structures and the composition and other characteristics of the common minerals and rocks. The early folding and metamorphism in the Ibadan area was followed by the emplacement of aplite schist and microgranodiorite dikes during the Liberian orogeny 2. Needless to say, Barite's place in human civilization is likely here to stay for many years to come. These sediments are deposited on the rock unit that is going down. Chronic exposure to arsenic may also lead to the development of cancers, heart diseases, and respiratory diseases.
