Rock Colour Charts
The Munsell Rock Color Chart provides a durable, accurate method for classifying and judging rocks sample. Each book comes with over 115 Munsell Color Standards each with its correct ISCC-NBS color name and unique Munsell alpha-numeric notation. Easily and accurately communicate the exact color information of your rock samples by using the Munsell Color Standards contained in the Rock Color Chart. This chart is primarily for field use and indicates the range of rock colors for all purposes and is accurate for wet or dry samples. Although the chart is mainly used to assign values to medium to finegrained rocks, it can also be used to describe coarse-grained rocks as well.
- Color produced on water resistant substrate
- Features Munsell notations for each color providing:
- Value (degree of lightness)
- Hue (color)
- Chroma (degree of saturation)
Soil Colour Charts
The Munsell Soil Colour Charts are an affordable way to evaluate the type of soil that is present within a given area. The book is set up to allow users to make soil color evaluations in the field quickly and easily. The soil classification system that has been developed around the Munsell color system is an established and accepted process to assign a soil type. This classification system has been used in Australia for more than 55 years to aid in the management and stewardship of natural resources. Through the use of the Munsell Soil Color Charts, practitioners from a wide range of professions can share reliable and consistent information about the color of soils at a particular site with colleagues anywhere around the world.

The pages within the Munsell Charts are cleanable and can be exposed to the standard environmental conditions that are met in the field. This does not mean that the book will be able to withstand all of the environmental conditions that it is exposed to in the field. For the cleaning of the colored pages, please make sure not to use a cleaning agent or materials that are coarse in nature. These materials could either damage the surface of the color chips or cause the color chips to start to delaminate from the pages.
Sand Grain Charts
This chart is essential for all geologists. It allows classification of rock and sand grains based on size and provides a point of reference when working out in the field. It allows the geologist to classify based on a variety of properties such as size and shape, grain sorting, roundness, and sphericity of a sample.
The chart consists of several measurement indicators including a sphericity/roundness measuring chart; printed examples of well-sorted and poorly-sorted grain samples in fine, medium, and coarse ranges; four actual grain samples illustrating angular, subangular, subrounded, and rounded shapes; six grain size samples: silt, very fine sand, fine sand, medium sand, coarse sand, and very coarse sand. It also includes measurement limits for granules, pebbles, cobbles and boulders (in order of size).
