Data are presented for a suite of peridotitic mantle-derived xenoliths collected from basanite lavas within the Llangorse volcanic field, northwest British Columbia. The xenoliths comprise spinel lherzolite and subordinate spinel harzburgite. Twopyroxene thermometry based on the Brey and Köhler (1990) [Brey, G.P., Köhler, T., 1990. Geothermobarometry in four-phase lherzolites II. New thermobarometers, and practical assessment of existing thermobarometers. Journal of Petrology, 31, 1353– 1378… CONTINUE READING
