									                OBSERVATIONS OF MINERAL optical PARALLEL USING

You can see pictures dargestellet as shown in Figure 4, viewed along the Z axis (with
positive optical mineral) or the X-axis (for optical mineral negative). (Grad <30) 2V lower
Austrittspünkte visible optical axis. Melatope is hot, as in the uniaxial. The Isogyren seen
again, and have the same meaning as in uniaxial minerals.
Optical properties of minerals can be observed in the position of Nikol Parallel:

1. Physical properties of minerals: color, relief, size and shape
minerals, corner parts, etc..
2. Relative refractive index.
3. Order double refraction (birefringence).
4. Axis interference.
5. Distribution and status of the optical axis of minerals.
6. Optical properties of the mineral-double refraction.
7. Extinction angle (dark / extinction).
8. Pleochroism minerals.

Thickness incision Vs. BF
• standard thin section thickness 0.03 mm; nature of interference
can only be observed in thin section 0.03 mm.
- Ct. Interference color of quartz bottommost: I order white
(gray) - Yellow order I.
• interference colors can be seen from the horizontal position
incision; diagonal lines are characteristic birefringence (BF).
• From the BF position, straighten down through the diagonal line
to the intersection: thick standard incision.
• Order the color interference and birefrience use

3. Type of Minerals Properties berdasrkan Pleokroiknya

• Minerals uniaxial (dichroic): two different warnayang parallel beam due to vibrations of
the vertical axis (c) and the axis of the base (b).
• Minerals biaxial: trichroic, 3 color changes associated with the three major axes (a, b, c).
• Ct: horenblende pleokrois strong and non-pyroxene pleokrois
4. Crystalline Form

• The crystal is determined by the orientation of its edges
• The irregular crystals on all sides called anhedral
• If most of the irregular crystals called subhedral
• If all the so-called irregular euhedral crystals
