Sedimentary Thin Sections

Sedimentary thin sections and microscope slides, made from our very own stock of rock specimens, the slides exhibit on a microscopic level the crystals and minerals which make up a sedimentary rock as well as the grain sizes with specimens such as breccia showing large angular crystals to shale specimens showing minute ones, all in a range of colours.
