Geology Toolkit | Premium
Geology Toolkit | Premium – a complete android application which allows geologists to examine and explore minerals and rocks features.
Geology Toolkit makes mineralogy and igneous petrology to be easier to examine a thin section and to understand the characteristic properties for each mineral/rock 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.
