Turquoise trade of the Ancestral Puebloan

Turquoise trade of the Ancestral Puebloan | Archaeological Sciences | Scoop.it
Ioannis Iliopoulos's insight:

By using the isotope ratios of hydrogen and copper for analysing 74 turquoise artifacts from Puebloan sites in the San Juan Basin and the Virgin Puebloan area in southern Utah and the Moapa Valley in Nevada, and a comparative database that contains the isotope fingerprints of 22 turquoise resource areas the authors revealed ancestral Puebloan turquoise procurement strategies and trade networks.

Chemical analysis of ancient rocks reveals earliest record yet of Earth's atmosphere: Isotopic memory of atmospheric persistence

Chemical analysis of ancient rocks reveals earliest record yet of Earth's atmosphere: Isotopic memory of atmospheric persistence | Archaeological Sciences | Scoop.it
Chemical analysis of some of the world's oldest rocks has provided the earliest record yet of Earth's atmosphere. The results show that the air 4 billion years ago was very similar to that more than a billion years later, when the atmosphere -- though it likely would have been lethal to oxygen-dependent humans -- supported a thriving microbial biosphere that ultimately gave rise to the diversity of life on Earth today.

Berkeley Lab Researchers Help Discover Rare Form of Iron Oxide in Ancient Chinese Pottery « Berkeley Lab News Center

Berkeley Lab Researchers Help Discover Rare Form of Iron Oxide in Ancient Chinese Pottery « Berkeley Lab News Center | Archaeological Sciences | Scoop.it
Ioannis Iliopoulos's insight:

Using a variety of analysis techniques including optical microscopy, electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and synchrotron x-ray techniques to assess the chemical composition and crystalline structures within the glaze the research team of Berkeley university identified epsilon-phase irons oxide in ancient tea bowls from Song Dynasty in China. Some of the interesting properties of this rare form of iron oxide include its persistent magnetization (the key to better, cheaper permanent magnets used in data-storage and other electronics), its non-toxicity and its highly resistant to corrosion. Their next step will be to understand how it is possible to reproduce the quality of epsilon-phase iron oxide with modern technology.
