This thin section consists of two quartz crystals, one of which is oriented perpendicular to the optic axis and provides a perfect crystal with which to obtain an interference figure.
These six minerals are mounted on one slide to show comparative relief.
Most phases in this thin section are subhedral to anhedral in shape. The k-feldspar have patchy exsolution textures. Most other phases are sparsely distributed and generally subhedral to anhedral.
This course-grained orthopyroxenite is ideal for finding interference figures for orthopyroxene.
A very fine-grained brownish-gray aggregate of chalcedonic quartz, scattered specks and aggregates of slightly coarser quartz and irregular stringers and blebs of translucent to opaque organic material. Local patches and grains of fossiliferous calcite appear.
This mineral phases in this gabbro are highly fractured and frequently embayed. The pyroxenes are roughly euhedral in shape and several equant grains are twinned. The opaques in this sample are typically equant in shape and contain inclusions of olivine or a fiery orange-red mineral that appears the same in plane- and cross-polarized light.
A seriate-interlobate texture defines this quartzite. Grain boundary migration is evident from thickened and lobate grain boudaries. Subgrain walls are prevalent, as is undulose extinction. Recrystallization textures are present in portions of the thin section. Useful for finding interference figures
Without a handsample it is difficult to know if BR-05 is a phyllite or a schist, though the composition and texture are clearly metamorphic. Moderately-aligned muscovite makes up the bulk of this sample. Interspresed throughout are aligned prisms of biotite and kyanite.
Granular olivine crystals with virtually no alteration and few fractures. Great for obtaining interference figures.
This thin section consists of two oriented aragonite crystals, both good for obtaining interference figures.
Poorly-sorted, angular, clast-supported, arkosic conglomerate with large clasts of deformed quartz and microcline. Many feldspar grains are altering to clays. Deformed micas are interspersed throughout. Perthite and scotch-plaid twins are extensive. The cement is comprised of microcrystalline quartz and locally, calcite.
Phenocrysts in this thin section are of augite, biotite, and opaques. Uralitization of augite is observed in one region of the sample and is absent elsewhere. One augite crystal appears dendritically intergrown with opaques. Nephaline, which is the dominant groundmass mineral, appears intergrown with another mineral though it is unclear which. These intergrowths are spherical in shape and observable at the macroscopic scale. Prismatic and radiating fibers of zeolites are found throughout. Apatite crystals span a great range of sizes with the longest crystals reaching more than a millimeter in length. Apatite crystals of a smaller size pervade the nephaline phase.
