    Roger H. Mitchell, Steven C. Bergman (auth.)

    This means that total kimberlite occurrences are tens of thousands of hectares of land-mass, compared to 13 billion hectares of land on the planet, of which 7% is located within Archean cratons. Given that less than 1% of kimberlites will yield an economically-viable diamond deposit, finding a viable diamond mine is a daunting task. Kimberlites move from great depths toward the surface along fissures and the gaseous kimberlite magma creates a volcanic explosion: a pipe or diatrema is formed. Along the fissures underneath, the kimberlite cools and solidifies forming walls (Dykes) 2. Lamproite - another type of deep volcanic rock, that may bring diamonds from great depths 3.

Kimberlite pipes are the most important source of mined diamonds today. The consensus on kimberlites is that. Kimberlite occurs mainly in craton, and lamproite in the margin of craton. Lamproite is volcanic rock composed mainly of olivine, clinopyroxene (diopside), mica, leucite, K-amphibole, sanidine.

Kimberlite is defined as a volatile-rich, potassic, ultrabasic igneous rock that occurs as small volcanic pipes, dykes and sills. It has an inequigranular texture resulting from the presence of macrocrysts (phenocrysts and xenocrysts) set in a fine-grained matrix.

Kimberlite is just one of several rock types found at the earth's surface that sometimes contains diamonds. More than 40 kimberlites were initially mapped in the Colorado-Wyoming State Line district (1), this was followed by mapping of a small kimberlite blow in the Sheep Rock district (2), a major dike-blow complex in the Iron Mountain district (3), and the mapping of a major lamproite.

Kimberlite, also called blue ground, a dark-coloured, heavy, often altered and brecciated (fragmented), intrusive igneous rock that contains diamonds in its rock matrix.

It has a porphyritic texture, with large, often rounded crystals (phenocrysts) surrounded by a fine-grained matrix (groundmass). It is a mica peridotite, and its most abundant mineral constituent is olivine.

International Kimberlite conferences (IKCs) are special events that are held across the world once in four to five years. IKC is the confluence platform for academicians, scientists and industrial personnel concerned with diamond exploration and exploitation, petrology, geochemistry, geochronology, geophysics and origin of the primary diamond host rocks and their entrained xenoliths and.

Diamond-bearing kimberlites are volcanic rocks that originate deep in the Earth and are erupted onto the surface.

Kimberlite is the name given to a silica-poor and magnesium-rich extrusive igneous rock (e.g., a volcanic rock) that contains major amounts of olivine, often serpentinized.

It is a highly variable mixture of melt, minerals crystallizing from the melt, and foreign crystals and rock pieces. Kimberlite may occur in the field as dikes or pipes that crystallize near but below the surface.
