ABSTRACT

 

Ultramafic and gabbroic rocks of the Oman ophiolites crop out northwest of AI-Fujairah. This paper presents the geochemical characteristics of some of these rocks. They are distinctly enriched in MgO and depleted in silica, total iron, total alkalis and titania. Their variation diagrams indicate that they are more closely related to the komatiitic magma type than other magma types. However, the field criteria on which komatiites are primarily defined are completely lacking in the rocks of the present study. Thus, it is believed that they represent a distinct magma type among ophiolite complexes.
