The proposed technique utilizes back-scattered-electron and secondary-electron images to form a composite image in color. Contrasts between minerals in the sample, both in atomic number and in textural relationships, are visible. The ability to identify phases and artifacts is improved by inclusion of three SEM signals in one image. The use of color enhances both esthetic quality and detail of technical illustrations.--Modified journal abstract.
