The island is the geological type area of the mineral labradorite, which is a plagioclase feldspar.[1] Labradorite is the principal component of the igneous rock type anorthosite. The Nain anorthosite batholith is a large igneous plutonic rock complex that covers a large area of this part of Labrador.
