Title Description
 Nahcolite   

A monoclinic mineral, NaHCO3 ; forms small, white, highly soluble, prismatic crystals; in nonmarine evaporite deposits; esp. abundant in parts of the Green River lake beds of Colorado.  
 Niobium   

A shiny, white, soft, and ductile metallic element. Symbol, Nb (niobium) or Cb (columbium). The name niobium was adopted by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. Many chemical societies and government organizations refer to it as niobium, but most metallurgists, metals societies, and commercial producers still refer to the metal as columbium. Found in niobite (or columbite), niobite-tantalite, pyrochlore, and euxenite. Used as an alloying agent in carbon and alloy steels, in nonferrous metals, and in superconductive magnets. Syn: columbium  
 Nacreous   

Adj. Applied to the luster of certain minerals, usually on crystal faces parallel to a good cleavage, the luster resembling that of pearls 
 Nystagmus   

An eye disease suffered by some miners, in which there is a spasmodic oscillatory movement of the eyeballs; in severe cases, the victim finds difficulty in walking straight. Bad lighting is generally believed to be the main cause, and is possibly aggravated by the workers lying on their sides in thin seams
