MINERAL/PHASE ANALYSIS

Phase identifications are based on Siemens (now “Bruker”) graphics and search/match software, manual Hanawalt search/match procedures, and comparison to XRD data for our collection of mineral standards.    

Phase concentrations are determined using relative peak heights/areas, comparison to XRD scans of mineral standards and comparison to our XRF- determined elemental compositions.

Standard reports include semi-quantitative estimates of the concentrations of all crystalline phases identified and a description of the analytical procedure.

Quantitative analyses of specific minerals (eg. quartz, cristobalite) are available upon request. Detection limits for individual phases range from <1% to ~5%, depending upon the sample concentration.

Raw x-ray diffraction data can be provided in digital form on disk or as a graph on letter-size paper. All reports are mailed. Reports can be emailed at no extra charge.
