It is so important to see natural phases of minerals and fossils in their primary size and shape. Electric-pulse disaggregation is one only way to preserve such a valuable information for geoscientists. Crystal morphology, absolute age, genesis, chemical composition and physical properties of any mineral can be studied in situ on undeformed minerals with great accuracy. The same efficiency of liberation could be reached by EPD for pristine grains and crystals of softest minerals from hardest matrix, for example, halides of Ag from quartz, or in contrary hardest crystals of diamond and its indicator minerals from kimberlite soft matrix but this phenomenon deserves its special post which will follow.
