Abstract

Samples of "glauconite" were collected from the glauconitic sandstone at Lakes Entrance and the glauconitic fossiliferous Miocene limestone of Maslin's Beach and Hackham. The refractive indices of the samples were measured. The results were compared against the range of refractive indices for glauconite, as given by A.N. Winchell. The composition of the samples and the observed results are discussed in this report.
