Introduction
My work in PhD thesis focuses on the dynamics of potentially toxic elements in different environmental medium (soil, air, precipitation, stream sediments) in the area of past and present mineral processing. I also worked in the field of conservation and restoration science, where I used analytical techniques as Raman spectroscopy, FT-IR spectroscopy, XRF spectroscopy, SEM-EDS and optical microscopy, determining the composition of modern and ancient mortars, murals, rocks, etc.

The potential environmental impact of historical mining and ore processing on stream sediments and water was studied in a small siderite iron ore deposit with diverse sulfide mineral paragenesis. The main aim was to characterize solid carriers of potentially toxic elements (PTEs) in stream sediments and mine waste, to understand their fate in fluvi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A detailed chemical and morphological characterisation of individual heavy metal-containing solid phases and their subsequent changes in selected environmental media from the Upper Mežica valley, Slovenia, was carried out using the microanalytical method of scanning electron microscopy with energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The environment in t...

Garnets (19 pieces) of Late Antique Sfibulae from the archaeological site at LajhKranj (Slovenia) were analysed with Raman microspectroscopy to obtain their mineral characteristic, including inclusion assemblage. Most garnets were determined as almandines Type I of pyralspite solid solution series; however, three garnets showed a higher Mg, Mn and...
