IR and ICP-MS Analysis of White Powder Found
Repeatedly in Holland Crop Circles
As has occurred repeatedly in crop circles found in the fields around Hoeven (and also in conjunction with other anomalous incidents which occur at the home of Robbert v/d Broeke), a very fine-grained white powder appeared again on October 5, 2009 -- this time in the center of a small new circle which had been added to a series of rings discovered previously on September 27th.
For a description of the first appearance of this white material, which involved the presence of a large rotating light-ball at Robbert's home, see: http://www.bltresearch.com/eyewitness/eyewitness7.php. For a discussion and laboratory analysis of multiple other incidents involving the white powder in crop circles near Hoeven in 2007, see both Part 1 and Part 2: http://www.bltresearch.com/eyewitness/eyewitness8.php.
Before presenting this current analysis which again utilized infra-red spectroscopy (IR) as well as an additional test to determined purity level of the material (called inductively-coupled plasma mass spectroscopy, or ICP-MS), an overview of many other events which took place in this same field in 2009 might be useful. ......................
Conclusions:·The white powder is confirmed by FT-IR2 to be the same hydrated form of magnesium carbonate (approximate formula of (MgCO3)4 ·Mg(OH)2 ·5H2O) as the previous sample received October 5, 2009.
·ICP/MS shows the isotopic ratios of this magnesium are normal for terrestrial magnesium.
·The ICP elemental results show the magnesium carbonate is 99.99% pure. This surprising result would suggest that the material is chemically made and/or refined from a natural source. Clearly, at this purity it is beyond agricultural use, which appears to be about 85% purity (http://www.sangamproducts.com/Magnesium.html). Magnesium carbonate at this 99.99% purity could be found in a laboratory storeroom. Alfa Aesar sells 99.996% pure magnesium carbonate at $717.00 per 100 grams (http://www.alfa.com/en/GP100w.pgm?DSSTK=010796). This is rather expensive, and copious amounts of this material have been recovered from various formations and other bizarre events related to Robbert v/d Broeke.3
·What is also puzzling is that material recovered from an open field should have evidence of contamination with airborne dust particles. Of course, one could argue that the dust would only be on the surface, so if the sample were taken from the center of the pile, one might avoid contamination. But if one just shoveled the material into a bucket, one would expect mixing....................
So how does one approach a reasonable interpretation of these facts? Neither Robbert nor any of his friends are financially able to afford this material and none of them are aware of a professional laboratory supply company anywhere in the area. If there is someone in the area wealthy enough to afford this material, how could they know (in multiple incidents now, for more than ten years) exactly when to arrive and at which field? How did they manage to avoid being seen in 2007 on the night when Robbert and most of his family and Mr. and Mrs. Gomis were present in the field at "Woodenhead" as a new crop circle actually formed with the white powder in its center?
More difficult to understand is how anyone could have deposited this same material on Robbert's 2nd-floor balcony in 1997 immediately following the rotating BOL incident, with Robbert's whole family home and awake, the entrance to their fenced-in back garden securely locked? (In that instance Mr. and Mrs. v/d Broeke were both watching television in the living room, a room that is directly beneath Robbert's balcony and fitted with tall floor-to-ceiling glass doors which provide an unobstructed view of the entire back garden.)
And then there are the multiple occasions upon which deposits of this same material have appeared in the family's living room, dining room and kitchen -- inside a house equpped with multiple locks on all the ground-floor doors and windows.
Unless one is willing to accuse the entire family and many of their friends and neighbors of duplicity in these events, the repeated presence of this 99.99% pure magnesium carbonate is simply a mystery. Anyone who actually knows the v/d Broeke family or any of the rest of us who have repeatedly witnessed these events is aware that such an accusation of collusion would be a bit pitiful -- and, in my personal opinion, indicative of a predetermined decision to avoid dealing with the facts.
