My current research mainly focus on using novel in-situ elemental mapping and spot analysis to ore minerals by LA-ICPMS and SEM-EDS. Here are some examples of the interior compositional textures of different ore minerals from around the world.

Beautiful colloform texture of sphalerite in the Galmoy Zn-Pb deposit, Irish Midlands. Revealed under plain polarised light on an optical microscopy. The vies is about 1 cm in width.
