Accessory minerals present include biotite mica and hornblende. Being the extrusive equivalent of granite, these sections are particularly interesting when used in conjunction with the granite thin sections. This material was collected from Cumbria, UK. Each section is made to 30 microns thickness and the glass is 46 x 27 mm in size with a cover slip. Supplied in a protective card sleeve with a label, ideal for microscopy and educational purposes.
