Spectrometer identification, is it real?
by R Cowper
My good friend and neighbour showed me the greatest pitfall in determining the credibility of Chinese pottery claims. He told me a spectrometer had been invented within which a proposed Chinese piece would be examined. Radiated waves would progress through the pottery ware and in a short time an extremely7 factual analysis of the objects composition, bonding, materials etc could show its exact age give or take twenty years. Perhaps you,Peter, like me are now flabbergasted at not having heard of such a magnificent invention. Icertainly was and proclaimed its brilliance to remove all the uncertainty in this industry and a lot more of course. Towards the end aftermuch rejoicing I blurted out how this inventor would soon become extremely rich as the hordes of people lined up to pay for its use. My neighbvour looked grave and told me sadly that he never made a cent, no one came to use his machine, not the museums, the experts the collectors, nor the novices not even the first time buyers, no body at all Peter. I am shocked so I thought I might ask why this could be so?
