The Virtual Microscope - Ore Minerals is a professional and interactive virtual petrographic microscope which allows geologists to examine and explore minerals and their microscopic features.
The Virtual Microscope - Ore Minerals makes Optical Mineralogy easier to examine a polished 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.
Made by a Geologist for Geologists.
🌟 11 most common ore minerals in thin-section which cover native elements, sulfides and sulfosalts class (+gangue minerals) (gold, pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena, pyrrhotite, tetrahedrite-tennantite, bournonite-seligmannite, hessite, quartz and rhodochrosite);
🌟 19 high-quality thin-sections related to ore deposits;
🌟 360 degrees interactive movement of the plates;
🌟 properties of each mineral;
🌟 user-friendly interface, ad-free and very intuitive;
🌟 made by a Geologist for Geologists.
Read before installation!
Space requirements: ~150 MB! Trust me, it will be worth it!
Important: In some devices, the app does not work properly. In order to make it working (to see the mineral(s) when you rotate the plate) please do the following things:
i) move the app to internal memory (or to SD card) - try now;
ii) restart your app - try now;
iii) restart your phone (or uninstall-reinstall app) - try now.
This app can be used as a virtual manual in disciplines like Optical Mineralogy, Mineralogy, Metallogeny and cannot replace the University classes or 'dedicated' books.
