We have undertaken noble gas analyses of four polycrystalline framesite diamonds from the Jwaneng kimberlite pipe, Botswana. These samples yielded complex, multiple noble gas components (crustal, atmospheric and in situ radiogenic/fissiogenic), which were successfully deconvoluted by combining vacuum crushing and step-heating experiments and examining a full suite of noble gas isotope and elemental abundances. The most striking observation is the presence of crustal nucleogenic neon, released...[Show more]
