Petrography

We conduct standard optical examinations of thin sections under plane and cross-polarized light to determine mineralogy; estimated porosity; relative percentages of framework grains, matrix, and cement; textural characteristics, identification of microstructures, and diagenetic alteration.  Reports include a set of photomicrographs demonstrating whole slide characteristics, as well as significant features.

We do not prepare samples or conduct reflected-light studies at this time.
