Hi Piotr,

Matt wrote everything, but I have 2 small comments:
- Fe environment if it is oxide or metallic state can be visible 
directly from the distance in most cases.
- Piotr, you wrote nothing about composition (and detection method and 
preparation of the sample for the experiment) - only that you have 6 
additional elements, what is stoichiometry and what kind of elements? 
This information can decrease the number of input parameters...
Giving you advise knowing nothing about your sample is as a guesswork...
