The University of Arizona Mineral Museum is currently collaborating with the Geoscience Department’s RRUFF Project.
The RRUFF Project is developing a comprehensive database of Raman spectra and X-Ray diffraction data of known
minerals to aid in the non-destructive identification of mineral samples.
- The database can be accessed at: http://rruff.geo.arizona.edu/rruff/
