Abstract Types of rock, such as komatiite, which formed entirely or dominantly during restricted time periods in solar system history, are important indicators of how planetary bodies evolved in deep time. In this paper we characterize three different types of temporally-restricted anorthosites, and discuss their significance to the broad-scale evolution of planetary processes. Primordial anorthosites, which constitute the bulk of the lunar crust, were sampled during Apollo and Luna missions… Expand
