In situ origin for glass in mantle xenoliths from southeastern Australia: insights from trace element compositions of glasses and metasomatic phases

Yaxley, Gregory; Kamenetsky, Vadim S


Siliceous, aluminous and alkali-rich glasses, commonly found in patches and veins in spinel peridotite xenoliths, have been attributed to a number of different origins. These include low-degree primary melts of the mantle, exotic metasomatic melts influxing into the lithosphere, or breakdown of amphibole, and other phases during high-temperature transport of the xenoliths to the surface in their host magmas. We present new laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS)...[Show more]
