The XRD Mineralogy Set is a collection of 50 different mineralogical substances for non-destructive material characterization, analytical identification and comparison studies with diversified instrumentation inclusive of refractive index, birefringence microscopy and x-ray diffraction. Each mineral is initially hand selected for high concentration content, comminuted to a uniform 44 µm particle size.

Approximately ½cc of each of the listed substances is contained in a labeled glass vial sealed with a polycone screw cap. The vials are organized in a protective polyfoam block and packaged in a protective case. The inside lid contains a reference chart alpha-numerically indexed to the mineral vial positions for easy identification and retrieval.
