Abstract:

The brief survey is intended to present an introduction to the various ways to achieve dispersion staining colors by microscopy with particular application to atmospheric mineral dust identification. The evolution of dispersion staining as a means for identifying small mineral particles is traced from 1872 to date. An example of how color arises is shown schematically and guidelines are presented for the choice of a microscope system and immersion fluids. Author
