For the same sandstone samples, grain size determined by microscopic measurement of the long axes of quartz grains in a grain mount is significantly coarser by a constant than grain size determined by measurement of the long axes of grain sections in a rock thin section. The lengths of long and short axes of the same grains or of the same grain sections have a very high degree of correlation.
