Microscope slides of talc (soapstone) from Norway, these slides display the crystal structure of the mineral on a microscopic level which assists in the identification of this mineral in other slides. Soapstone, sometimes called soap rock or by its actual name of steatite is actually a metamorphic rock composed of the minerals talc and schist. It forms in tectonic zones where plates are subducted, the heat and pressure along with fluids alters the rock but does not melt it, resulting in soapstone, this metamorphic process is known as dynamothermal metamorphism. Each section is made to 30 microns thickness and the glass is 46 x 27 mm in size, supplied in a protective card sleeve with a label, ideal for microscopy & educational use.
