Spectroscopic investigations of descloizite
Descloizite mineral originated from Grootfontein, South West Africa, is used in the present work. The chemical analysis of this mineral reveals the presence of V2O5 = 20.94, CuO = 0.45 wt%, FeO in traces. An EPR study of sample confirms the presence of VO(II) and Fe(III). Optical absorption spectrum of descloizite indicates that VO(II) is present in distorted octahedral environment. NIR results are due to water fundamentals.
