ASD - Mineral Analysis - TerraSpec Halo

The TerraSpec Halo mineral identifier is a full-range NIR spectrometer measuring the visible and short wave infrared regions (350-2500 nm) that produces immediate on-instrument results using a non-destructive contact measurement. The instrument includes internal references to allow for easy operation and data management and also features proprietary, state-of-the-art mineral identification software for fast data capture in the field, and easy data management back in the lab or core shack.

Key Features

Lightweight design and ruggedness allow for unprecedent portability. The fully integrated, full-range spectrometer with on-board mineral identification software eliminates the need for cumbersome cables or third-party devices. 

Powerful on-board software allows for mineral results in seconds, including confidence rating and spectral scalers that give you even more information about your deposit. 

The TerraSpec Halo is an all-in-one device - one hand, one click. 

Data can be automatically saved in the instrument and later exported to any Windows computer. 

GPS and voice memo allows you to geotag and record audio notes. 

It gives multi-mineral predictions, confidence levels and spectral scalers that allow you to monitor crystallinity changes, subtle shifts in alteration patterns and compositional changes associate within geochemical gradients. 

Comprehensive multi-continent, ever-expanding mineral spectral library; utilize the USGS spectral library or customize your own! 

The TerraSpec Halo is designed with audio and visual tools for easy operation, fast data collection and superb workflow. With a few clicks, optimize performance for both light or dark rocks.  

Everything you need for the field is on the device. Download your spectral data from the TerraSpec Halo to your own laptop where you can export the data to the Spectral Geologist, Leapfrog or other third party software tools of your choice.  

Review spectra on the device or on your laptop. Laptop software allows for easy spectrum management with user-friendly file naming, spectrum review and tagging, and easy import/export capability.
