Abstract:
Five turquoise samples, belonging to the XVII century historical collection of the Real Museo Mineralogico (University of Naples Federico II), were investigated by a multi-methodological approach based on X-ray powder diffraction, electron microprobe analysis in wavelength-dispersive spectroscopy mode, back-scattered electron images collected with scanning electron microscope in energy dispersive X-Ray spectroscopy mode, laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, Fourier Transform Infrared and Raman spectroscopy. The samples come from Sinai (Egypt), Santa Fè S. Miguel (New Mexico), Saxony (Germany), Montebras Creuse (France) and Nishapur (Khorassan, Iran) and display different mineralogical composition and various mineral arrangements. The analyses have shown the presence of: 1) four minerals of turquoise group: turquoise, faustite, chalcosiderite and planerite; 2) other phosphates differently grouped: wavellite, crandallite, goyazite, gorceixite, variscite, metavariscite, fluorapatite; 3) other minerals: voltaite, adularia and quartz. The present study aims to show the high mineralogical and geochemical variability of the samples under investigation, with particular attention to the mineralogical association, the textural analyses and the trace elements concentrations.
