This website provides photomicrographs of minerals and rocks in thin section. The images are subdivided into minerals, plutonic microtextures, volcanic microtextures, and metamorphic microtextures. Each photomicrograph is accompanied by sample information, a brief description, rock type and locality, plane polarized and cross polar views, and a link to other examples of the mineral or microtexture. ...

This web site includes almost 200 photomicrographs of rocks and minerals. The thin sections are all in transmitted white light, some in plane polarized light, but most with crossed polarizers on. The majority of the pictures show a field of view 1.5 mm long (about 80X magnification). Other magnifications are indicated where different. The thin sections are categorized into minerals, igneous, metamorphic, ... Full description.

This site contains photographs of 22 igneous rock hand samples. Clicking on an image brings up a larger view of the sample. In addition, links to thin sections are available for some of the samples. Thin sections can be seen in both crossed polarized light and plane polarized light by moving the cursor on and off the photomicrograph. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/petrology03/index.html ... Full description.

This website, designed for a Sediments and Strata course at the University of California- Davis, contains numerous photographs of turbidite sequences in outcrop. Photos are divided into two categories; turbidites in the Cretaceous Pigeon Point Formation and turbidites in the Cretaceous Great Valley Sequence. Users may also follow a link to other sedimentary photos. Full description.

This 24-slide PowerPoint presentation describes the classification of metamorphic rocks using texture and composition. Foliation, lineation, cleavage, schistosity, gneissose structure, hornfels, and granofels are discussed. Specific metamorphic rock types and modifying terms (porphyroblastic, spotted, augen, para-, ortho-) are defined and photographs of some are provided. This resource is part of ... Full description.
