Grindstone Laboratory grinds mountains into microns.

Despite newer and more sensitive technology becoming available to geoscientists, archaeologists, and other earth scientists, these analytical trends still require a simple sample preparation called a thin section.

Our lab cuts, grinds, and polishes all of your samples to highly calibrated standards for a variety of scientific analyses. Our goal at Grindstone Laboratory is to provide the highest quality in sample preparation and petrographic thin section production.

We service members of various science communities at universities, research institutions, mineral and mining exploration companies, environmental companies or anyone needing preparation for identification and analysis of material.
