The results are presented of a detailed petrological reconnaissance of a group of picritic minor intrusions in the Hebrides. A substantial amount of new factual data is subjected to a unified treatment as a basis for reference and discussion. Olivine phenocrysts are not appreciably zoned and there is no evidence that they have a reaction relation with the liquid represented by the groundmass. Variations in the size and amount of olivine in individual intrusions are examined in detail and… Expand
VIII.—The Petrology of Picritic Rocks in Minor Intrusions—a Picrite Sill on the Island of Soay (Hebrides)
A Small picrite sill of critical significance is examined in detail, from top to bottom, with particular reference to the distribution and crystallization of the olivine. Statistical evaluation ofExpand
THE LOWER MARGIN OF THE SHIANT ISLES SILL
At one locality near or at the lower margin of the main Shiant Isles sill there are contacts with Jurassic marl. Immediately adjacent to the highest of these contacts there is clear evidence of anExpand
The Hebridean Igneous Province plumbing system: A phase equilibria perspective
Abstract The architecture of magmatic plumbing systems and the behaviour of the crystal mush underlying active volcanoes can be assessed by examining the crystal chemistry and microstructureExpand
Hybridization and the petrogenesis of composite intrusions: the dyke at An Cumhann, Isle of Arran, Scotland
The composite dyke at An Cumhann, Arran consists of a central unit of quartz-feldspar porphyry flanked by narrow marginal dolerites containing xenocrysts of quartz, plagioclase and alkali feldsparExpand
The petrology of the Lugar Sill, SW Scotland
A 49 m complete section through the 288 Ma Lugar Sill obtained from drill cores can be subdivided into nine units. The uppermost four units are teschenitic and are mirror images of the bottom four. AExpand
Ultrabasic rocks of Rhum and Skye: the nature of the parent magma

Rocks from the peridotite dykes of southern Skye (Gibb 1968) are virtually identical to those found in the large layered intrusions of Rhum and Skye, suggesting that they may have been formed in aExpand
The layered ultrabasic rocks of Sgurr Dubh, Isle of Skye
Synopsis The Sgurr Dubh ultrabasic rocks show many features indicative of bottom accumulation of cumulus crystals from a basaltic or picritic magma. Dunites are common towards the base of the layeredExpand
A petrological investigation of the xenolithic ultrabasic dykes of the Cuillins and the Strathaird Peninsula, Isle of Skye
The Tertiary ultrabasic dykes of the Cuillins and the Strathaird peninsula are studied and classified on the bases of their content of cognate xenoliths and textures. Two principal types areExpand
Intrusion features of some hypabyssal south African kimberlites
Kimberlite in certain dykes and in the deepest parts of some diatremes show textural and other features which contrast with those in the breccia diatremes. Some hypabyssal kimberlite intrusions showExpand
Geochemical consequences of flow differentiation in a multiple injection dike (Trinity ophiolite, N. California)
Abstract A clinopyroxene-rich dike of the Trinity ophiolite sheeted-dike complex shows three different magmatic pulses, probably injected in a short period of time (no well developed chilled margin)Expand

TLDR
The ultrabasic rocks of Rhum were re-mapped over an area of 3 square miles, including Hallival and Askival, the highest mountains of the island, to reconsider its manner of origin in the light of modern petrological research, especially recent work on layered intrusions. Expand
