Artemis Testing Lab authenticates pottery / ceramic antiquities and ancient art using the scientific technique of Thermoluminescence (TL), a dating method for archaeological pottery which can distinguish between genuine and fake / reproduction examples. TL Testing can be used to analyze fired pottery, earthenware and terracotta, and the casting cores of bronzes. Artemis Testing Lab also offers XRF (X-ray fluorescence) authentication, a non-destructive analytical technique to determine the elemental composition of materials. XRF testing can be used to analyze virtually any material, but is most commonly used for metal analysis. Artemis Testing Lab also offers traditional X-Ray testing of pottery, metal and stone to get a better view than possible by the naked eye (to see hidden repairs, new material, extent of restoration).
