Metamorphic reactions developed thin "corona" reaction assemblages between Fe-Ti oxides and plagioclase (biotite, hornblende, augite, and garnet), and between igneous augite and plagioclase (hornblende).

the reactions also resulted in clouding plagioclase and interstitial augite with millions of minute spinel and Fe-Ti oxide inclusions.

Now that you are familiar with how to use a petrographic microscope and some of the optical characteristics that can be observed for minerals, it is possible to identify minerals under the polarizing light microscope (or at least to eliminate some possibilities).

When a slice of a rock is mounted on a glass slide and thinned, it is possible to see through many minerals and observe their optical properties. The information obtained allows the identification of minerals to be made, and combined with textural information that can also be obtained from thin sections, it is possible to build up a picture of 3/5(1).

Most commonly, rock and mineral samples are prepared as thin sections or grain mounts for study in the laboratory with a petrographic l mineralogy is used to identify the mineralogical composition of geological materials in order to help reveal their origin and evolution.If your section comes out with the minerals all cracked: you were grinding too fast.

If your section comes out with the edges thin and the center thick: you were grinding too fast. If your section comes out thick on one side and thin on the other, you either didn't frost the slide well, or there was an uneven epoxy layer.Rocks and Minerals in Thin Section A Colour Atlas, 2nd Edition.
