Factors Controlling Chemistry of Magmatic Spinel: an Empirical Study of Associated Olivine, Cr-spinel and Melt Inclusions from Primitive Rocks
Compositions of ~2500 spinel-olivine pairs and 400 melt inclusion-spinel pairs have been analysed from 36 igneous suites from oceanic, arc and intraplate tectonic settings. Our data confirm thatExpand

The amount of recycled crust in sources of mantle-derived melts.
Plate tectonic processes introduce basaltic crust (as eclogite) into the peridotitic mantle. The proportions of these two sources in mantle melts are poorly understood. Silica-rich melts formed fromExpand

Metal saturation in the upper mantle
The oxygen fugacity fO2of the Earth’s mantle is one of the fundamental variables in mantle petrology. Through ferric–ferrous iron and carbon–hydrogen–oxygen equilibria, fO2 influences theExpand

Release of gold-bearing fluids in convergent margin magmas prompted by magnetite crystallization
A relationship between convergent margin magmas and copper–gold ore mineralization has long been recognized. The nature of the genetic link is controversial, particularly whether the link is due toExpand

Picrites from the Emeishan Large Igneous Province, SW China: a Compositional Continuum in Primitive Magmas and their Respective Mantle Sources
Flood basalts are one of the remaining enigmas in global mantle petrology. They come in enormous quantities of up to 10. 6 km. 3 of mantle-derived melt, and they erupt in rather short time intervalsExpand

Olivine in the Udachnaya-East Kimberlite (Yakutia, Russia): Types, Compositions and Origins
Olivine is the principal mineral of kimberlite magmas, and is the main contributor to the ultramafic composition of kimberlite rocks. Olivine is partly or completely altered in common kimberlites,Expand

Carbonatite metasomatism in the southeastern Australian lithosphere
New mineralogical and geochemical data from a suite of glass +/- apatite +/- amphibole +/- phlogopite +/- carbonate-bearing spinel wehrlite, lherzolite and harzburgite xenoliths from the NewerExpand

Survival times of anomalous melt inclusions from element diffusion in olivine and chromite
The chemical composition of basaltic magma erupted at the Earth’s surface is the end product of a complex series of processes, beginning with partial melting and melt extraction from a mantle sourceExpand

High-Mg potassic rocks from Taiwan: implications for the genesis of orogenic potassic lavas
Taiwan is an active mountain belt formed by oblique collision between the Luzon are and the Asian continent. Regardless of the ongoing collision in central and southern Taiwan, a post-collisionalExpand

Enriched End-member of Primitive MORB Melts: Petrology and Geochemistry of Glasses from Macquarie Island (SW Pacific)
Macquarie Island is an exposure above sea-level of part of the crest of the Macquarie Ridge. The ridge marks the Australia-Pacific plate boundary south of New Zealand, where the plate boundary hasExpand
