Abstract

The Gaussian resolution procedure of Faye (1975) leading to the conclusion that the spectral changes in a shock-loaded rhodonite are the result of a broadening or intensification of the ultraviolet charge-transfer absorption and that the 540 nm band is present with comparable intensity in both pre- and post-shock samples is not physically meaningful because it has ignored the dominant process which gives rise to the rising baseline "absorption" throughout the near-infrared and visible spectral regions. That process is wavelength-dependent scattering.
