Mineral Study

Laboratory Method of the Study of Minerals

Laboratory investigations are carried out to diagnose minerals, study their chemical composition, physical properties, crystallo-chemical characteristic features, defectiveness and other heterogeneities essential to the solution of various theoretical, genetic and applied problems. A brief of the most important laboratory methods of mineral analysis is given below.
