Abstract

Results of chemical analysis of some sands in the arid zane ofNorrh Eastern Nigeda hw.'e shown thai the sands are S!iilable rmv materials for the glass industry. The major gh1ss forming oxide which is sii1cc, has been determined to be high, rangingfi"om 7-1 tc,94%_ In particula1; samples three (Dapchi) andfcve (Ngala) are suitable for all glass making. The extent of substitutio.~,pf ammonia group, (R,OJ) for the metal oxides was determined in percentages for all the samples. It was found to be a function of the percentage compositioll of silica. The deleterious hemy metals were no/ detected. a foct which also makes the sample suitable for glass making. The perce,tage of oxide of iron (Fe,OJ) is relatively high in these samples ranging betweenl.70% and 1..59% thus making them viable for colour and amber glasses.
