This CD supplements our classroom sets of rocks, which you can also order from our website.
You will find illustrative photographs of hand specimen and high-resolution photomicrographs of thin sections of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. Each category shows numerous images of 15 common rocks included in the classroom sets.
You can view the images as thumbnails, enlarged pictures, or as a slide show.
We hope you enjoy our Atlas, which is a condensed version of a forthcoming comprehensive Atlas of Rock-Forming Minerals and Rocks in Thin Sections containing thousands of photomicrographs and video-micrographs.
