Weathering occurs in many materials exposed to the weather and near-surface processes. One of the products of weathering can be patina which occurs as a fine layer or encrustation, usually laminated, on the surface of rock or other materials (Jackson 1997). The term ‘patina’ is also used with reference to the oxidation of metals such as bronze or copper, as well as for the layer on rock surfaces in arid regions (e.g., ‘desert varnish’, cf. Jackson 1997).
