Kimberlite has in many ways attracted more attention than its relative volume might suggest that it . The Yilgarn Craton contains various types of alkaline rocks, including calc-alkaline lamprophyres (CAL), ultramafic lamprophyres (UML), carbonatites, orangeites and kimberlites. The PGE patterns of the CAL exhibit elevated (Pd/Ir) N ratios, whereas the other rock types are characterised by less fractionated PGE patterns, with lower (Pd/Ir)(N.

The principal objective of this chapter is to compare, contrast, and illustrate the mineralogy and petrology of archetypal kimberlites, also known as group I kimberlites, with those of the group of diamond-bearing rocks which, in this work, are termed “orangeites.” The latter rocks have previously been termed “micaceous kimberlites” or “group II kimberlites.”Cited by: 5.

Kimberlite is an igneous rock, which sometimes contains diamonds. It is named after the town of Kimberley in South Africa, where the discovery of an carat ( g) diamond called the Star of South Africa in spawned a diamond rush and the digging of the open-pit mine called the Big Hole.

Description, classification and interpretation of kimberlites and related rocks, and communication of that information, underpin the development of three-dimensional geological models used in. Groundmass mineral chemistry of the kimberlites has some features more typical of orangeites.

Kimberlite whole-rock Sr and Nd isotopes show zoning across the Province. When the kimberlites erupted at ~ Ga, they sampled a core volume (ca 50 km across) of relatively depleted SCLM that was partially surrounded by a rim of more metasomatized mantle.

Eruptions of kimberlite volcanoes are a poorly-understood phenomena, as there have been no historical eruptions of kimberlite, and primary deposits and edifices of kimberlite volcanoes are rarely preserved.

In particular, the styles of explosion, magma fragmentation, and primary deposition of kimberlite remain unclear. This thesis comprises field and laboratory study of five kimberlite Missing: orangeites. Genesis, evolution and emplacement of kimberlite and related melts. Kimberlites, together with orangeites (also known as Group II kimberlites) and olivine lamproites, are the major host-rocks of terrestrial diamonds.

They are small-volume volcanic rocks that derive from deep in the Earth’s mantle. Kimberlites are small-volume, volatile-rich (CO 2 and/or H 2O), potassic, ultramafic igneous rocks that occur worldwide as dikes, sills, and diatremes within Precambrian cratons.

These rocks have been studied extensively, in part because kimberlites represent the. 11th International Kimberlite Conference Extended Abstract No. 11IKC, A Comparison of Geochronology Methods Applied to Kimberlites and Related Rocks from the Karelian Craton, Finland David Phillips1, Darwin Zhong1, Erin L.

Previously, the term kimberlite has been applied to olivine lamproites as Kimberlite II, however.

A polymict megacryst-rich ultramafic volcanic breccia, rich in olivine, plus phlogopite, carbonate, garnet (e.g. pyrope), pyroxenes (e.g. diopside), and oxides. Commonly highly serpentinized and porphyritic, it occurs in vertical pipes, dikes, and sills. It is the principal primary host for diamonds, but only a small percentage of the known.
