Subject: Decolourisation, Rock weathering, Colour change, Color analyses.
Description parameters of rock masses and minerals include their colours as well. Colours appear in daylight for surfaced rock masses are changing slightly due to weathering layers which have been covering its surface gradually. Healthy human eyes can manage to differen... View more
