Petrographic Analysis

Megascopic examinations of samples are carried out for its color, grain size, structure, texture, reaction with certain chemicals.

Thin section study is carried out under latest Polarizing Microscopic to identify the mineral assemblages of rocks, alteration of minerals and derived exact nomenclature of the sample.

Besides these model analysis, specific gravity, cutting and polishing characters and compressive strength are also studied in the Petrology Laboratory.
