The investigation of different samples of SNC (Shergotty-Nakhla-Chassigny) meteorites was chosen to test the ability of micro-Raman spectroscopy to cope with extraterrestrial material. The following SNC meteorites were investigated: Sayh al Uhaymir 060, Dar al Gani 735, Dar al Gani 476, Northwest Africa 856, Los Angeles, Northwest Africa 1068 and Zagami. Pyrite as a hitherto undescribed phase in the picritic (olivine-phyric) shergottite NWA 1068 and reduced carbon (e.g. graphite) and anatase in the shergottite Say al Uhaymir 060 are new findings for this class of meteorites.
