 +Future content of our database:
 +//Materials//: A large number of minerals (meteorites and terrestrial)
 +  * A set of important Martian Meteorites rich either in secondary minerals or high-pressure mineral phases (Nakhla, Lafayette, Governador Valadares, Tissint, Yamato 000593, Zagami, NWA998, NWA10163, NWA10645) .
 +  * Other meteorites, such as lunar meteorites, many chondrites (including carbonaceous), eucrites, diogenites. Additionally, access to a large variety of common and rare meteorites through the Meteorite Aerolith Museum of Athens, Greece, a private museum led by Takis Theodossiou (see 
 +  * A large set of pure minerals and mineral phases, covering all the elements of the periodic table.
 +  * A large set of thin sections of rocks, covering a variety of areas worldwide
 +  * A rich set of hand specimens of minerals (Krantz collection) 
 +  * Other technological or artificial materials (i.e., metallurgical slags with extreme mineral phases)
 +Materials are measured in the lab. Effort is made to setup tools for field measurements.
 +  * Raman spectra of minerals and other materials: spectra for lasers (a) 633 nm, (b) 532 nm, and (c) 785 nm. (point analyses)
 +  * FTIR spectra of most of the above materials (bulk analyses; absorption and reflectance; wherever possible, depending on the volume and format of the sample)
 +  * Reflectance and transmission spectroscopy: wavelength range 200-1100 nm
 +//Metadata// (where possible):
 +  * XRD structural analyses
 +  * Chemical analyses with SEM/EDS
 +  * LIBS spectra
 +  * Planetary (Mars, Earth, meteorites)
 +  * Technological
