I have added a detailed walk-through identifying an igneous rock from hand sample (Posted under Pages on the right). Covering off mineral identification, mineral percentage, naming and rock history. I want to cover off sedimentary and metamorphic rocks as well. The highlight some confusing pairs. As always any questions comments or corrections welcome.

I have added some pages to cover off the first year Introduction to Geology lab. Some of the photos are a bit out of focus and I might update them one day. I will add some model answers to some of the rock id sheets. The mineral photos have hover or alt text tags to identify them. I might do the same with the rocks if there is interest.

The final practical test is challenging. However, good marks can be achieved if you put the effort in.

Still to come? The fossils and maybe some tips on mapping, if the subscriber numbers are there to warrant it. Good luck this year.
