Optical Microscope

We offer a service of thin section analysis with Optical Microscope for the recognition of the mineral constituents, allochems, paleontological content, texture, sorting (or crystal size range), pore types and abundance of pore-filling cements or alteration/residual products. 

Our team has been involved in several field works where the cutting analysis has demonstrated to be one of the most useful analysis in field exploration. We perform cutting analysis with the Optical Reflecting Microscope providing  a complete lithological borehole description with information about color, grain shape, cutting size, grain size, inclusion/secondary minerals, main minerals, sorting/maturity.
