Kimberlite and Related Rocks

  • Roger H. Mitchell


Kimberlites are petrographically complex rocks. In addition to exhibiting modal mineralogical variation arising from magmatic differentiation processes, they are hybrid rocks consisting of crystals originating from three distinct sources: mantle-derived xenoliths, the discrete nodule suite, and primary phases crystallizing from the kimberlite magma.
