This paper presents a detailed high-precision study of Ni isotope variations in mantle peridotites and their minerals, komatiites as well as chondritic and iron meteorites. Ultramafic rocks display a relatively large range in δNi (permil deviation in Ni/Ni relative to the NIST SRM 986 Ni isotope standard) for this environment, from 0.15±0.07‰ to 0.36±0.08‰, with olivine-rich rocks such as dunite and olivine cumulates showing lighter isotope compositions than komatiite, lherzolite and pyroxenite… CONTINUE READING
