It is with great sadness I'd like to announce Dr. Hanneman passed away on December 12, 2020. His legacy will live on forever!

Can we do them both in one chat? Love to do that subject too, even if we aren't there yet.

I don't know if we can cover both topics. We can just see how the pace goes.

Lustre as a topic is easily covered. Lustre calls in practice are harder to define. But we can discuss it and pool our opinions. Fluorescence and phosphorescence can have a start made to it too (Time permitting)

I'd suggest that you all read the link below. This covers what we already did on ruby fluorescence.

See ya all 'n Sunday at 20;30 GMT
