Description

Details

Marble thin section microscope slide exhibiting and a high birefringence, twinning and an interlocking nature setting it apart from the sedimentary quartzite rocks which we also supply. Marble is a hard crystalline metamorphic rock; it shows no foliation at all and is usually composed of carbonate minerals such as calcite or dolomite and as such, it is typically derived from limestone. In hand specimen the marble is pure white and coarse suggesting a dolomitic origin. This particular material comes from Spain. The glass is 46 x 27 mm in size, supplied in a protective card sleeve with a label, ideal for microscopy, petrography & educational use.
