Microscope slides of muscovite mica from Pakistan, these slides display the crystal structure of the mineral on a microscopic level which assists in the identification of this mineral in other slides. Muscovite mica is a common mineral often found in many other rocks. It is sometimes also known as common mica and is easily identifiable due to its perfect basal cleavage which result in specimens forming with thin laminae (sheets) which are often referred to as a 'book'. These mica sheets also have a certain point of elasticity to them, being able to be bent and returning to their original shape. It is also know because of it's metallic lustre, which gives the surface of said sheets a reflective nature. Each section is made to 30 microns thickness and the glass is 46 x 27 mm in size, supplied in a protective card sleeve with a label, ideal for microscopy & educational use.
