Petrology of Lamproites by Roger H. Mitchell

By Roger H. Mitchell

In this ebook, the 1st devoted totally to the petrology of lamproites and their relationships to different potassium-rich rocks, the target of the authors is to supply a accomplished serious overview of the prevalence, mineralogy, geochemistry, and petrogenesis of the extended family. even if lamproites characterize one of many rarest of all rock varieties, they're either economically and scientifically vital and we think the time is ripe for a overview of the advances made of their petrology during the last 20 years. lots of those advances stem from the popularity of diamond-bearing lamproites in Western Australia and the reclassification of numerous anomalous diamond-bearing kim­ berlites as lamproites. hence lamproites, formerly of curiosity in simple terms to a small variety of mineralogists focusing on exotica outdoors the mainstream of igneous petrol­ ogy, became leading pursuits for diamond exploration on a global foundation. Contemporaneously with those advancements, petrologists learned that lamproites own isotopic signatures complementary to these of midoceanic ridge basalts, alkali basalts, kimberlites, and different mantle-derived melts. those isotopic reviews supplied new insights into the long term improvement of the mantle through suggesting that the resource areas of lamproites have been metasomatically enriched in mild infrequent earth and different incompatible parts as much as 1-2 Ga ahead of the melting occasions resulting in iteration of the magma.
