Frozen melt–rock reaction in a peridotite xenolith from sub-arc mantle recorded by diffusion of trace elements and water in olivine

Tollan, P. M. E.; O'Neill, H.; Hermann, J.; Benedictus, A.; Arculus, R. J.


Inferring the ambient state of the lithospheric mantle from xenoliths may be misleading if the magmatic activity responsible for the exhumation has modified the xenolith. Changes due to melt–xenolith interactions during exhumation are usually identifiable because of the short timescales involved, but changes due to earlier pulses of magma passing through the lithosphere may be more insidious because the longer timescales allow extensive overprinting of the ambient petrography. Here we describe...[Show more]
