Mineral Spectroscopy Database
Return to Mineral Spectroscopy Home | Contact | MHC Home


Spectra of meteorites generally consist of a mixture of spectral components from glass, olivine, pyroxene, iron oxides, and metals, depending on the type of meteorite. It is useful to compare the spectrum of the whole meteorite to the spectra of its separated-out mineral components.

The photo to the left is representative of this mineral group; however, it is not the same sample on which spectra listed below were measured.
