The UK virtual microscope is now available on-line with the first ~80 samples at http://www.virtualmicroscope.org/
A second collection covers Moon Rocks collected by Apollo astronauts http://www.virtualmicroscope.org/content/moon-rocks
The UK collection is still being built and that publishers (the Open University) would welcome the donation or loan of interesting samples to make it as comprehensive as possible (rock hand specimens or thin sections). If anyone is disposing of a thin section collection they would be very pleased to give it a new home. We are also interested in non-UK samples. Contact Andy Tindle (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information.
