Clinohumite, a humite group mineral, originated from Pamir Mountains, USSR is used in the present work. Optical absorption, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), near infrared (NIR) and Mossabauer techniques are used in the characterization of the mineral sample. The optical absorption spectrum indicates that Fe(II) impurity is present in two sites with distorted octahedral structure. NIR results are attributed to water fundamentals.

EPR studies on powder sample confirm the presence of Mn(II) in three different sites and also an iron impurity. Mossabauer studies confirm the presence of iron impurity in two different sites.

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.
