OREAS 26b

OREAS 26b is a basalt blank chip certified reference material. The material was sourced from a quarry containing fresh olivine tholeiite (Newer Volcanics Province), near Melbourne (Victoria), Australia. There are 52 certified values by borate fusion XRF, LOI at 1000°C, Au by fire assay and full ICP-OES/MS suite by 4-acid digestion. Detailed certification data is available for this CRM (OREAS 26b Datapack.xlsx).
