Geology Toolkit is a thoroughly practical, lively and comprehensive application which allows geologists/hobbyists or even kids to examine and explore minerals and rocks features under the petrographic microscope or as hand-specimen. This app is an identification guide to many types of rocks, minerals, and even fossils. Geology Toolkit will guide you how to recognize some of the rocks and minerals that you will find.
Geology Toolkit makes Mineralogy and Petrology be easier to examine a thin section and to understand the characteristic properties of each mineral/rock without a petrographic microscope, which is known to be very expensive. The application is mainly addressed to geoscience students/geologists as a guide in individual or supervised laboratory work. A great thing about Geology Toolkit is that it works offline.
This app can be used as a virtual manual in disciplines like Paleontology, Crystallography, Mineralogy, Petrology, Ore Deposits and cannot replace the University classes or 'dedicated' books.
Made by a Geologist for Geologists.
► Premium design and Ad free
The interface is user-friendly, ad-free and very intuitive.
