Virtual Microscope - Minerals App

The Virtual Microscope - Minerals is a professional and interactive virtual petrographic microscope that allows geologists to examine and explore minerals and their microscopic features (❗this app contains only minerals in thin sections using transmitted light - non-opaque minerals).



The Virtual Microscope - Minerals makes Optical Mineralogy easier to examine a thin section and to understand the characteristic properties of each mineral without a petrographic microscope, which is known to be very expensive. It is mainly addressed to geoscience students/geologists as a guide in individual or supervised laboratory work.

The app is Made by a Geologist for Geologists.



MAIN FEATURES
92 most common minerals in thin-section which cover all silicate and non-silicate classes;
High-quality thin-sections related to Igneous, Metamorphic and Sedimentary rocks;
360 degrees interactive movement of the plates by dragging in a circular movement;
Magnification – zooming in and out;
detailed observations for each mineral under the microscope (both PPL and XPL);
user-friendly interface, ad-free, and very intuitive;
Regular updates.

❗❗❗ For minerals in reflected light (opaque minerals), I have developed another app (Virtual Minerals - Ore Minerals).

Latest Virtual Microscope - Minerals update
