  • Abstract To explore the effect of variable CO2 concentrations on the solidus of natural carbonated peridotite, we determined near-solidus phase relations of three different nominally anhydrous, carbonated lherzolite bulk compositions at 6.6 GPa. Starting mixes (PERC, PERC2, and PERC3) were prepared by adding variable proportions of a carbonate mixture that has the same Ca:Mg:Fe:Na:K ratio as the base silicate peridotite [MixKLB-1: Mg no. = 89.7; Ca no. = molar Ca/(Ca + Mg + Fe*) = 0.05].
