Varying behaviour of Li in metasomatised spinel peridotite xenoliths from western Victoria, Australia

Woodland, Alan D; Seitz, H-M; Yaxley, Gregory


Lithium concentrations have been measured in minerals in a suite of spinel peridotite xenoliths from western Victoria, Australia. Carbonatite metasomatism has previously been documented in most of these samples, while others have evidence of interaction with a mafic silicate melt [Earth Planet. Sci. Lett. 107 (1991) 305; J. Petrol. 39 (1998) 1917]. In addition, all samples contain small, dispersed pockets of siliceous aluminous alkali-rich melt that frequently contain fine-grained phenocrysts....[Show more]
