Subject: Terracotta

I found the following statement on an other discussion group.

   "Old terracotta's have manganese metallic traces that are easily
    recognisable by visual inspection, they look like lichens and
    can be used to authenticate."

Has anyone researched this, is there a paper or article about this?
