Opalescence, as the word suggests, refers to an opal-like play of light, reflections off the mineral producing flashes of color that may appear somewhat like a patch-work of different "grains" of color that aren’t really there: Move the sample minutely and the color disappears from that spot. It is sort of like taking a pearly luster to the.   GUIDE FOR THE MICROSCOPICAL IDENTIFICATION OF ORE AND GANGUE MINERALS Mineral profiles with photomicrographs Book Author: Udo Neumann.

This site includes descriptions and imagery of nearly 60 species of common, and not-so-common, lumber species found throughout the U.S. and Canada. This is the third edition of this site containing nearly twice as many species, higher resolution imagery and more in-depth descriptions of each species. When I first put this site together more. the rocks in the study set using the rock identification chart. Begin by describing the texture and color of the rock. You should be able to identify minerals present in the coarse-grained and porphyritic rocks. To identify visible mineral grains, use the same mineral identification procedures that you used in Lab 6. Fill in the identification.
