Several thin sections and polished sections of a lead ore deposit were studied under transmitted and reflected light, and under cathode-ray bombardment. Through cathodolurninescence, compositional variations, not observable with the petrographic microscope, .were discovered in grains of cerussite. The use of the luminoscope as an aid in ore microscopy is therefore considered to have merit.
