    Micromorphology, or thin-section analysis, is the microscopic examination of the composition and structure of sediments. It was originally developed in soil science, with concepts of plasmic fabric and morphological features and structures dating from the early s undisturbed sediments are examined for a range of recognised microstructures, such as those first described by van der. PREPARATION OF ROCK THIN SECTIONS describes the procedures involved in making thin sections of ordinary, firm, non-friable materials as well as clays, coals, gypsum, water-soluble minerals, and minerals decomposed by water. The preparation of thin sections, which was described by Sorby ()' was well developed by Cited by: 6.

    A thin section description should be accompanied by a sketch of the main features of the slide. It is often useful to look at a thin section under the hand lens before using the microscope. The following properties should be described where possible or relevant, and you may need to describe other properties that are not listed below. Large Samples of Thin Section Rocks This complete hand specimen set corresponds to all samples included with the University Rock Thin Sections Set. Each generously sized hand sample averages 3" x 4" in size, and has been selected and prepared to display characteristic features and properties to aid in student recognition of key rock types.

    Thin Section of Minerals (Set of 20 Slides) This Collection contains 20 Types of Thin Section of Minerals Slides Types which is very helpful for age of 15 years and above. All the sections thin enough that you can observe under the microscope with transmitted light (passing through section, from below) They all thin enough that You can see. Banding: When minerals and materials of different groups are arranged into alternating thin to thick layers appearing in light and dark shades, they are called structures with banding, and rocks displaying banding are obviously called banded rocks. Metamorphic rocks are divided in to two major groups – foliated rocks and non foliated rocks.

At head of title: Geological Department: McGill es bibliographical onic of access: Internet A Color Atlas of Rocks and Minerals in Thin Section is a clear and accessible introduction to the use of thin sections in the study of Petrography—the scientific description of rocks.

Illustrated. A complete description of a rock contains information on its texture and mineralogy, which can be described in a hand specimen and thin section, and other features which can only be described in outcrop.

Preparing a Thin Section of a Rock Thin sections of rocks are prepared in order to observe them in Petrological Microscopes. Thin sections are prepared by grinding rocks to a thickness of micrometers (mm) so that its features such as mineral grains, cleavages, twinning and optical properties of those minerals can be observed.

Typical thin section slides are 26 mm x 46 mm, although larger ones can be produced. They are generally covered by another glass slide, a cover slip also attached to the rock. The first is a hand specimen rock description which is where you only have a rock, a hand lens and your eyes with which to try to deduce the type of rock.

The second is a thin section rock description where you have a slice of the rock which is on a glass slide making it possible to view the rock under a. (1) the thin section number.

All but one of the thin sections are FKM series; in the cases where source material for the billets was sampled from the research collections, or was donated or gifted to me by colleagues, that information is noted.

(2) the sample locality. This concise volume is designed for the introductory undergraduate level. With the help of colour photographs, the authors explain how to observe, describe and identify thin section samples of rocks and minerals using the polarizing microscope.

Review by Christopher G. Kendall This slim volume describes in considerable detail how the earth scientist can go about making a thin section. The book consists of some 12 chapters, 3 appendices, a glossary and a short bibliography.

The text is clearly written and is aimed at the novitiate who needs to make thin sections of rocks. Thin sections are made in order to study microscopically the mineralogy, petrology, paleontology, internal structures and fabrics of rocks and sediments. Thin slices of rocks (billets) are mounted on glass slides and usually ground to a thickness of 35 microns.

At this thickness, the thin section will easily transmit light. Various optical testsFile Size: 33KB. Johannes Lieder Thin Section Rocks and Minerals Slide Set II, Pack of 10 Product description Frey Scientific Lieder's thin section rocks and minerals slide #2 set.
