The Raman spectra obtained on the ornamental stones and gemstones from the monstrance ‘Colegiata de S. Pedro’ in Lerma, (Burgos, Spain) correspond to cornalline-like chalcedony, nephrite jade, quartz veinlets, agates with moganite and jasper, together with goethite. Various types of marble and lapis lazuli were identified.

The correlation of the Raman spectra with the crystal-chemical properties of the specific geological sources of the ornamental stones permits to place this work within the early XVIIth century Spanish historic-artistic frame.
