Munsell’s Rock Color Book provides durable, portable charts to accurately classify and evaluate rock color samples in the field. These charts help geologists and archeologists communicate color more effectively by cross-referencing ISCC-NBS (Inter-Society Color Council-National Bureau of Standards) color names with unique Munsell alphanumeric color notations for rock color samples.
This new edition is a revision of the previously published Geological Society of America (GSA) Rock-Color Chart prepared by the Rock-Color Chart Committee. Included are 115 color chips with the Munsell numerical designation for identifying the range of rock colors. Works with either wet or dry specimens. Excellent for describing the color of medium to fine-grained rocks. Also helpful when working with coarse-grained rocks. A neutral mask is included for isolating individual colors.
Although your Rock Color Chart is made to be cleaned and can endure rugged, real world conditions, damage and fading may require periodic replacement. Loose leaf binder. 2009 Revised Washable Edition. Page Dimensions: 4-3/8″ x 7-1/4″. Binder Dimensions: 6″ x 7-3/4″ x 1″.
