Rruff Project

The University of Arizona, The RRUFF Project

This website features an integrated database of Raman spectra, X-ray diffraction and chemistry data for minerals. The mineral database can be searched by providing a mineral name and/or composition. The RRUFF Project is creating a complete set of high quality spectral data from well characterized minerals. Pages for each mineral sample include photos of the sample, collected Raman spectra, powder diffraction patterns, and measured chemistry in addition to the mineral's locality and source.
