I don't know about stars but it is being employed for study of planets. See (http://epsc.wustl.edu/haskin-group/Raman/overview.htm). This research group is developing Raman spectrometers for in situ analysis of minerals on planetary surfaces. The spectra are attributed to Wang et al., J. Geophys. Res. 100, p21189-21199 (1995).

Spectra of the common silicate minerals olivine, pyroxene, and plagioclase are compared to a Raman spectrum of a lunar soil sample identified as 71501.
