Stable isotope (C, O, S) compositions of volatile-rich minerals in kimberlites: A review

Giuliani, Andrea; Phillips, David; Kamenetsky, Vadim S; Fiorentini, Marco; Farquhar, James; Kendrick, Mark


The composition of primary kimberlite melts and, in particular, the absolute and relative abundances of volatile components (mainly CO2 and H2O) are controversial issues, because kimberlite melts entrain and interact with abundant mantle and crustal xenoliths during ascent, react with wall rocks during emplacement, and lose some of their volatile inventory during pre- and syn-emplacement degassing. Compositional constraints are further complicated by the common alteration of kimberlitic rocks...[Show more]
