Beads from graves of the Samad Assemblage, Sultanate of Oman and from an ancient crafts quarter of the old kingdom of Ruhana, in Sri Lanka, were investigated using electron analysis and X-ray powder diffraction. Both experimental methods were optimized toward non-destructive analysis.

Translation of abstract (German)

Schmuckperlen aus Gräbern des Samad-Fundverbandes des Sultanats Oman und von einem Handwerkerviertel im antiken Ruhana auf Sri Lanka wurden chemisch untersucht. Es handelt sich um Elektronenanalyse und Röntgen-Pulverdiffraktometrie. Beide zerstörungsfreie Methoden wurden optimiert.
