Abstract The coexisting liquid and solid phases formed upon partial melting of a garnet lherzolite inclusion from kimberlite and a spinel lherzolite inclusion from tuff have been analyzed with the electron probe microanalyser. The experiments show that partial melting of 10–15% of garnet lherzolite with 2% phlogopite produces alkali picritic liquid at 30 kb (∼ 100 km) under anhydrous conditions. The compositions of olivine, orthopyroxene, clinopyroxene and garnet change regularly with… CONTINUE READING
