Petrology and Geology Microscopes

Microscope World offers petrology and geology microscopes that feature polarizing light with transmitted and incident illumination. A petrologist uses microscopes and chemical tests to determine the nature of rocks and minerals. Microscope examination of a rock specimen mounted on a thin section slide is the principle technique used to identify the rock specimen. Further study can determine the components and features of the rock along with its composition, how it was formed and the geological setting of the rock.
