Abstract
Confocal Raman spectroscopy is effective in unveiling structures ofmineralswithout destruction fromsurface to certain depth. In this study, we introduce an application of confocal Raman spectroscopy on minerals in a primitive chondriticmeteorite. The experimental lateral resolution on silicateminerals in this study is ~1.0 μm. Raman spectrum of mesostasis in a named “Tear Drop” chondrule, a spherule object from a primitive chondrite, of Elephant Moraine 14017 (EET 14017) shows a broad feature indicating amorphous phase, which is a common characteristic of primitive chondrule mesostasis. Weak intensities of 825 and 858 cm?1 peaks were observed in the glassy mesostasis, probably originated from olivine below the surface. A plagioclase-rich chondrule (PRC-1) of EET 14017 was investigated with Raman spectroscopy, which contains two different occurrences of plagioclase: lath-shaped and interstitial grains. The strong intensity of 488 and 505 cm?1 (plagioclase) and weak intensity of 461 cm?1 band were observed on the lath-shaped plagioclase. The weak 461 cm?1 peak from the plagioclase is probably from the subsurface quartz. Raman spectrum of interstital plagioclase in PRC-1 shows 488 and 505 cm?1 bands and weak pyroxene bands. Depth profiling conducted on the interstitial plagioclase clearly shows that pyroxene exists below the surface. High-lateral resolution and well-resolved depth profiling with the confocal Raman spectroscopy allows us to identify tiny grains and investigate hidden phases underneath the surface without destruction of extraterrestrial materials.
