  • How to make a thin section DaveHirsch

    A thin section is a 30 µm (= 0.03 mm) thick slice of rock attached to a glass slide with epoxy. Typical thin section slides are 26 mm x 46 mm, although larger ones can be produced. They are generally covered by another glass slide, a cover slip also attached to the rock with epoxy. The epoxy ideally has an index of refraction of 1.54, although our epoxy is slightly higher, perhaps 1.56.

    How to make rock thin sections, without much equipment! What you need: • petrographic glass slides and cover slips. • Epoxy. • small diamond saw (a tile saw will do fine). • lap for grinding -- a 10 to 12" square of plate glass will work if you don't have a wheel lap. • coarse, medium, and fine carbide grit powders, about 400, 800, and 1200 if you can get them. • cover slip

    Making thin sections is both an art and a science. We have sufficient equipment so that the art aspects are relatively minor, but every rock is different and technique can best be learned by perseverance and practice. SUMMARY INSTRUCTIONS 1. Cut the slab. 2. Mark the slab and cut the chip. 3. Label one side of the chip, and impregnate the other side with C-D epoxy. 4. Hand grind the chip first

  • DIY Thin Sections! – JOIDES Resolution

    To achieve this, we prepare thin sections. A thin-section is a slice of rock 30 microns thick. A single micron is 1/1000 of a milimetre. For perspective, a single human hair is about 10 microns in diameter! This might sound like a challenging thing to produce, but the process is relatively simple and an approximation can be performed by anyone at home or in the classroom with simple materials

    Keeping track of your samples is very important. It can be difficult to determine the origin of a thin section unless you properly label the rock chip or blank, as well as the thin section, during the thin section making process.

  • Rock thin section: andesite usgs.gov

    A rock thin section is created by gluing a small piece of rock onto a glass slide, then grinding it down to a thickness of 30 microns (the average human hair is about 100 microns in diameter) so that light shines through it when examined under the microscope. In this image, the brown crystal in the center is amphibole and measures about 2.2 mm long. The white rectangles are plagioclase. The

    Thin sections allow you to view rock specimens in a completely different manner, up close on a microscopic level. With this ability, one can view crystal shapes, habits, rock textures and inclusions in much more fine details, allowing you to determine the contents of a rock much better. We stock glass slides of all the main categories of rock, igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary, the majority

    The laboratory contains equipment needed to make thin sections of rock and to impregnate and section unconsolidated materials. For the former, it has a series of trimming saws and lapping wheels for preparing rock slices plus a Logitech LP50 thin section precision lapping machine that can typically make 12 sections at a time. For the latter, the Logitech IU30 is a self-contained unit designed

    It is a slip of rock, mounted on a glass microscope slide, and ground very thin. 30 Microns is the ideal thickness. (A standard piece of paper is 100 microns thick) At this thickness virtually all rocks are transparent, and the individual minerals that make up the rock can be seen and identified. When viewed through a polarising filter interference colours can be seen, a similar effect to oil

  • Thin section Wikipedia

    In optical mineralogy and petrography, a thin section is a laboratory preparation of a rock, mineral, soil, pottery, bones, or even metal sample for use with a polarizing petrographic microscope, electron microscope and electron microprobe. A thin sliver of rock is cut from the sample with a diamond saw and ground optically flat. It is then mounted on a glass slide and then ground

  • Thin section analysis AAPG Wiki

    12/03/2019· Modal analysis involves identification of rock constituents at a number of locations, or “points,” in a thin section. The number of points counted per thin section, and therefore the labor intensiveness of the analysis, depends upon the precision required. For most applications, at least 300 points must be counted per thin section to ensure an acceptable level of precision.
