GeoloSketchers is a network of people joined by the interest in geology and for drawing. The first GeoloSketchers meeting took place in February 2017. GeoloSketchers' meetings involve the collective practice of the open-air drawing in places where geology has a particular relevance and possesses visual-appealing elements. GeoloSketchers is inspired by the Urban Sketchers movement and is mainly focused on drawing scenes of the natural environment, a widely used tool in geology and other related sciences.

From Instagram: For #thinsectionthursday we have an image of a photomicrograph of a thin section of an olivine-bearing marble from the North-west Highlands of Scotland. The crystals of olivine can be clearly distinguished as clear whitish subround crystals with a high relief, amongst a background of coarse calcite. The most common mineral constituent of a marble is often calcite, which is a simple calcium carbonate mineral. In this example it forms much of the groundmass of the rock. The heat from the emplacement of the great plutonic mass at Cnoc na Sroine (of the Caledonian Orogeny) has contact-metamorphosed the limestones and dolomites to saccharoidal marbles. In the area between Loch Awe and the Ledbeg River above Loyne a gradual passage can be seen from the normal dolomites and limestones of the Ghrudaidh and Eilean Dubh groups into the crystalline marbles in which the original characters have been obliterated. The thin section shown is in PPL and the field of view is just under 3mm. #petrology #mineralogy #nwhighlandsgeopark @unesco.earth http://dlvr.it/PlQKZP
