Mineral Gallery

A collection of plane light and crossed polarized views of 27 common isotropic, uniaxial and biaxial minerals. Each individual mineral page also contains a summary of the optical properties useful in recognition. The minerals represent those covered in Optical Mineralogy (ERSC 2P22) with the remainder being introduced in Petrology and Petrography (ERSC 3P21).
