(1987). The glimmer i te-veined harzburgite xenolith in the most primitive minette may represent a sample of this mantle material. , 1988b). , 1988). Thus, the petrogenesis of the latites appears to have invol ved the same mantle reservoirs as the minettes; however, ,the higher silica contents in the latites may be attributable to higher activities of H20 in the early stages of melting of metasomatized mantlewedge material.
