Identification: FRO_1 => Identified by EDS analysis. EDS sample came from vug area on this specimen and was an Araldite embedded analysis of a polished grain. This should have greatly reduced surface contamination, (i.e. a Mn coating) affecting the analysis. FRO_2 is another area on same specimen as FRO_1.
