    Statistical characteristics of xenoliths in the Antioch kimberlite pipe, Marshall County, northeast Kansas. Sergey Kotov, Pieter Berendsen kimberlites, Antioch, Tuttle, and Baldwin Creek were discovered and drilled in , so as their sum would be equal to the total number of measured xenoliths. The last.   Kimberlites also carry many other types of rock with them on their long journey into the light. In spite of this "extra load," kimberlite magmas travel fast, and emerge onto Earth's surface in.

      Ultimately there are reasons to care about kimberlites that do not directly relate to their sampling of diamonds but rather to the large-scale view of the solid Earth’s deepest geochemical cycles. Kimberlite magma is an extreme end member for small amounts of mantle melting and high volatile (including water and carbon dioxide) content. their ascent toward the crust. Additional evidence regarding the origin of diamonds has stemmed from studies of upper mantle-derived xeno- liths and mineral inclusions In macro- diamonds. During the past two decades, de- tailed studies of upper mantle-derived xenoliths found in kimberlites and ba- saltic rocks have enabled petrologists.

This is a book about the petrology of kimberlites. It is not about upper mantle xenoliths, diamonds, or prospecting for kimberlites.

The object of the book is to provide a comprehensive survey and critique of the advances which have been made in kimberlite studies over the last twenty-five years. Kimberlites, Diatremes, and Diamonds: Their Geology, Petrology, and Geochemistry, Volume Editor(s): Henry O.A.

Mineral. and Petrol. In-text: (Shee, Gurney and Robinson, ). Kimberlites are igneous rocks that represent the deepest magmas originated from the mantle (> km) and typically occur within cratons.

Studies of kimberlites and their mantle xenoliths provide fundamentally important information about the composition, structure, and melting history of the subcratonic mantle. It is appropriate here to refer the reader to Chapter 7 where the xenolith-derived minerals are described.

One of the main characteristics of kimberlite is the inequigranular texture, due to included xenoliths and megacrysts of various minerals set within a finer-grained matrix containing microphenocrysts.

For example, we still do not understand the spatial and temporal relationship between kimberiite, xenocrysts and xenoliths, nor do we understand why kimberlites occur where they do or why they often intruded ancient cratonic areas periodically throughout geologic time.
