Petrology Microscopes

Petrology Microscopes by Meiji Techno

A petrologist uses microscopes and chemical tests to determine the nature of rocks and minerals. Microscope examination of a rock specimen mounted on a "thin section" slide is the principal technique used to identify the rock specimen. Further study can determine the components and features of the rock along with its composition, how it was formed and the geological setting of the rock.

Stained slices, hand specimens, or loose grains of rocks and minerals can be examined with an ordinary incident light stereo microscope like our EMZ-13TR Stereo Microscope with PKL-2 Stand. But thin sections are examined with a transmitted light polarizing microscope like Meiji's MT9000 Series.

Meiji Techno offers two types of MT Series polarizing microscopes:

MT9000 Series transmitted illumination models

MT9900 Series incident and transmitted illumination models

A wide range of other stands and illumination systems are readily available to fit any application.
