Pottery, basalt and other geological materials are usually ground to a powder, homogenized and pressed into a pellet. Determinations of the concentrations of about 10–12 elements are possible. Obsidian artifacts and certain other samples can be analyzed non-destructively.
|Sample Matrix||Charge per Specimen||Minimum Charge|
|Pottery to be powdered and analyzed as pressed pellets||50$||300$|
|Basalt and other rocks to be powdered and analyzed as pressed pellets||75$||300$|
|Non-destructive analysis of matrices other than obsidian||30-50$||300$|
|Non-destructive analysis of obsidian||25$||200$|
