The present study characterizes mortars from Thanjavur Palace (Thanjavur, India) to illustrate ancient production methods and the raw materials used. The mineralogical-petrographic composition of mortars was determined using optical microscopy, supported by scanning electron microscopy with energy-dispersive spectroscopy and X-ray powder diffractio...

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...

... Vibrational spectroscopy is a useful, non-destructive and rapid analysis method for distinguishing between different solid solutions as the spectra change as a function of the garnet composition [8]. Among them, Raman spectroscopy can provide more structural information about various normal vibrational frequencies and related vibrational energy levels inside the molecule. ...
