END_SAMPLE_DESCRIPTION.

XRD_ANALYSIS:

40 kV - 30 mA, 7.0-9.5 keV
File: plogo675.out, -.mdi (edge = random mount)
References: Huebner's reference patterns, particularly of a phlogopite crystal from Burgess, Ontario; SWBailey (1988, MSA Reviews 13)

Comment: Only moderately well crystallized (compare with WS-496). Position of the (3T 30-30) or (1M 060) reflection at 1.535 angstroms consistent with phlogopite (Mg=100). Three unindexed reflections at 1.64, 1.61. and 1.58 angstroms also appear in the reference pattern and in WS-496.
