Abstract

Thirteen peridotite xenoliths from Bultfontein, S. Africa, are characterized by recrystallization zones and both grain-boundary and coarser veins with abundant mica, amphibole, and diopside, and minor Ba-Sr-Ca-Zr-Cr-titanate (crichtonite structure; enriched in light rare earths), Cr-spinel, and Mg-ilmenite. Although a genetic relationship to the MARID-suite (mica-amphibole-rutile-ilmenite-diopside) is suggested by the overall mineralogy and high concentrations of trace elements, some details must be considered if the peridotites are to ...
