Introduction: Kaersutite is a Ti-rich amphibole defined as having between 0.50 and 0.80 Ti atoms per formula unit [1, 2]. It is commonly found in terrestrial mantle-derived peridotites, in alkalic rocks with obvious high-pressure histories [3, 4], and in some SNC meteorites for which the exact petrogenetic histories are unknown [5, 6]. Because kaersutite is(More)
