About LamproiteHide

A poorly defined group of potassic to ultramafic, dark-colored hypabyssal or extrusive, volcanic to pyroclastic rocks, usually in dykes and pipes. A group name for such rocks rich in potassium and magnesium; also, any rock in that group, such as madupite, orendite, fitzroyite, verite, cedricite, or wyomingite.


Classification of LamproiteHide

Sub-divisions of LamproiteHide

Mineralogy of LamproiteHide

Non-essential minerals - these minerals are common, sometimes major components, but are not always present:
Amphibole > Richterite{Na}{NaCa}{Mg5}(Si8O22)(OH)2
Feldspar > Alkali Feldspar > SanidineK(AlSi3O8)
Feldspathoid > LeuciteK(AlSi2O6)
Mica > PhlogopiteKMg3(AlSi3O10)(OH)2
OlivineEquivalent to Fayalite-Forsterite Series; usually a more or less Fe-bearing forsterite.
Pyroxene > Clinopyroxene > DiopsideCaMgSi2O6
Pyroxene > Orthopyroxene > EnstatiteMg2Si2O6

Age distributionHide

Recorded ages:
Paleoproterozoic to Cretaceous : 1630 ± 353 Ma to 67 ± 23 Ma - based on 9 recorded ages.
