Infrared reflection spectra (2500–250 cm−1) of some minerals and rocks were recorded with a multiple-scan interference spectrometer. Samples were small, irregular, and unpolished. Spectra were obtained with some samples approximately 1 mm in diameter. Emission of samples was obviated by using the interferometer as chopper.
