The invention relates to a vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) for measuring magnetic properties of a sample (S) using an elongated sample holder (SH, 10) with a controlled gas-atmosphere. The sample holder has an inlet (13) for receiving a first gas at the proximal end, an elongated first fluid channel (11) for conveying the first gas from the inlet to the sample. An elongated second fluid channel (12) conveys the first gas away from the sample, and an outlet (14) is arranged for conveying the first gas away from the elongated second fluid channel. Both the inlet and outlet are arranged at the proximal end of the sample holder near the head drive, and the sample holder facilitates vibrating sample magnetometry measurements of samples in gas-controlled environments at temperatures up to at least 1000 degrees C and in situ measurements of small sample masses.
