Rocky road to confusion

Raman spectroscopy has become an increasingly useful tool in the geosciences partly because it is non-destructive and requires minimal sample preparation, but also because it can be carried out on site with various irreplaceable geological samples. Unfortunately, Raman can confuse, especially when substances such as haematite and disordered carbon materials are present in the same rocky sample.
