Granite adamellite thin section slide exhibiting crystals of quartz, biotite and feldspar. We collected this material from the famous Shap Fell quarry, in Cumbria hence the rocks alternative name ' Shap Granite '. The mineralogy of this rock is relatively simple i.e. biotite mica, quartz and two feldspars - plagioclase and k-feldspar. It is the orthoclase feldspar which dominates this thin section, responsible for the characteristic pink colour of the Shap granite. The 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.
