"I'm a female research geologist with a love of lego- this is a sample of my career. The scene here shows research geologists discovering minerals in a limestone rock formation and the characterization of the minerals in the laboratory.
The entire project has 213 pieces total.
Field geology: A female and male geologist with a dog (there's always the obligatory geology dog) exploring a crystal cave system complete with stratigraphic layers. Accessory pieces include:  compass/brunton, rock hammer, shovel, and a geology dog.
Petrographic laboratory: Petrographic laboratory: Mineral analysis performed with a light microscope and a scanning electron microscope (SEM) complete with an electron backscatter detector to distinguish phases and an energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDS) to determine elemental composition using
microanalysis software."
