This chart is designed primarily for field use, although it indicates the range of rock colours for all purposes. The mineralogist and the geologist working in the laboratory may need more colours and a different system of presentation. We recommend the use of the Matte Book of Color for this purpose.

The card is printed onto translucent plastic for easy reading and comparing against grain size and texture in the field. The card includes a sorting chart, roundness scale and percentage by area images and is 149mm x 72mm, made from plastic it is completely waterproof and tear resistant.
The igneous rock texture card is made for earth science students, it displays numerous bites of information on how to determine an igneous specimen found in the field such as grain size, silica and mineral content and other observable features. The cards have been laminated, making them waterproof, small, the size of a bank card and an excellent to hand guide for students, amateurs and professionals.

A ten specimen metamorphic rock set produced by our selves at our warehouse in the UK, the set comprises of ten samples picked out to details textures and features such as foliation, banding, high temperature or pressure minerals and more pertaining to the various grades of metamorphism. The samples sit within a plastic cell inset which its self is housed within a blue sturdy card box with a lid. The inside of the lid also has a colour photo key chart which exhibits pictures of the specimens as well as names and locations they are from. An excellent basic set for educational use or as a gift.
Agglomerate igneous rock specimens from Scotland, UK. A coarse grained, hard blocky rock exhibiting a conglomeration of various minerals and igneous material of volcanic origin. These samples formed part of the Glen Coe caldera and are apart of the upper streaky andesite unit, the exhibit poor sorting and orientation of material which indicates a somewhat violent origin but this can vary from agglomerates by location and is mainly down to the chemistry of the igneous material. The samples are available in 3 sizes and come supplied in a card tray with a label, they are suitable for educational use to show the different types of volcanic rocks produced as well as those interested in collecting rock samples.

Biotite granite igneous rock specimens from Ballachulish, Scotland, UK. Composed of the felsic minerals quartz and feldspar, with occurrences of biotite crystals. The rock has an overall white appearance due to its felsic chemistry but the black biotite mica offers a striking contrast in colours. The samples are ideal for both collectors due to the attractive nature and for college to university level education to describe the variations in granite which one may find. The samples are available in three sizes and supplied in a card tray with an information label.

Biotite muscovite granite specimens from St. Austell in Cornwall, UK of Permian age is a coarse grained igneous rock composed of quartz, plagioclase feldspar, biotite and muscovite. The rock is part of the St. Austell pluton which formed 280 million years ago. An off white colour with gold and black flecks of micas, the rock has a unique chemistry and resulted in the rich mineralisation of ores in the area. The samples are suitable for collectors and educational use to show granite variants, available in three sizes. Each piece will come supplied in a card tray with an information label.

Basalt igneous rock specimens from, Ireland, which formed during the Tertiary period approximately 60 million years ago. A dense, fine crystalline, dark coloured rock which forms at extrusive igneous bodies and contains olivine alongside with various pyroxene minerals such as augite along with plagioclase as well. The samples are available in 3 sizes and come supplied in a white card specimen tray with a label. Being so common and an important igneous rock, it is suitable for educational use as they are one of the introductory and staple rocks that students are often shown when entering earth sciences.

Accretionary lapilli tuff is an igneous pyroclastic rock, these samples come from Longsleddle, Cumbria in the UK and forms when hot ash and debris is ejected from as volcano. Some of this material is held together by moisture and once heavy enough, falls into the ash below forming small ‘spots’ within the material, creating a speckled rock. The samples are suitable both for young and serious collectors as well as educational use and are supplied in various sizes with a card tray and label.
