Greywacke thin section slide exhibiting the textbook poorly sorted, angular nature of this rock. The origin of greywacke was once an area of much debate but it is now accepted that greywacke largely forms as a result of deposition from turbidity currents. The mix of coarser angular quartz, feldspar and lithic fragments held within a fine grained matrix is clearly an indication of rapid deposition. These thin sections exhibit all of the key features one would expect from a greywacke specimen, perfect for educational use. These samples are Silurian in age & sourced from around Moffat in Scotland. The thin 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.
