Gypsum (CaSO 4. 2H 2 O) is very similar to Anhydrite (CaSO 4). The chemical difference is that gypsum contains two waters and anhydrite is without water. Gypsum is the most common sulfate mineral. Geology of Nigeria. Kogbe, University of Ife. Center for Advanced Studies.

The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 discusses the geology of the crystalline rocks and their regional distribution while the sedimentary basins constitute the subject of Part 2. Part 3 presents the mineral resources of Nigeria, their geological environment, mode of occurrence, localities and where possible their estimated reserves.
