Geomaterials are of enormous economic importance to the global construction industry. This is the first comprehensive guide to the petrography of geomaterials, making the petrographer's specialist knowledge available to practitioners, educators and students worldwide. The book provides some 350 superb quality colour photomicrographs of geomaterials plus concise explanations of their petrographic properties and how to interpret them. An introductory chapter gives an overview of geomaterials practice and a state-of-the-art review of petrographic techniques. Each of the subsequent chapters covers a different group of construction materials and includes an explanation of their history, manufacture and use construction. The text draws upon diverse published references to provide a unique summary of the properties and classify construction materials. Geomaterials Under the Microscope is a valuable resource for all those interested in modern and historic construction materials, be they microscopists or in the fields of geology architecture, surveying, engineering, construction, archaeology, conservation, materials science and forensic science.

Geomaterials derived from the Earth’s crust and used in construction after appropriate processing are among the earliest raw materials exploited, processed and used by humans. Their numerous functional properties include accessibility, workability and serviceability, and these are explored within this volume. In modern society, sustainable use of raw materials, specifically those exploited in large volumes such as geomaterials for construction, raises questions of reducing extraction of primary resources and thus minimizing impacts on natural systems, and also employment of
