A zoisite group of mineral samples from different localities are used in the present study. An EPR study on powdered samples confirms the presence of Mn(II), Fe(III) and Cr(III) in the minerals. NIR studies confirm the presence of these ions in the minerals.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
