SPECTROSCOPIC_DISCUSSION:

END_SPECTROSCOPIC_DISCUSSION.

Spectrum has absorptions at 0.7560 and 1.15 microns from an unknown material. There are absorptions characteristic of both pyrophyllite and muscovite. Both minerals have absorptions that overlap near 1.4 and 2.2 microns. The offset at 1.01 microns is an artifact.

SPECTRAL_PURITY: 1b2_3_4_ # 1= 0.2-3, 2= 1.5-6, 3= 6-25, 4= 20-150 microns
