Mineral Identifier

Terraspec halo mineral identifier: all-in-one mineral analysis system that allows you to immediately identify alteration minerals with a simple pull of a trigger. The TerraSpec Halo mineral identifier is a full-range NIR spectrometer measuring the visible and short wave infrared regions (350-2500 nm) that produces immediate on-instrument results using a non-destructive contact measurement.
