dc.description.abstract The Rietfontein kimberlite is an off-craton kimberlite pipe, located west of the Kaapvaal Craton at 26.75°, 20.04°E and hosts a range of xenocryst lithologies, including peridotite, eclogite and a suite of megacryst minerals. This study focuses on a suite of eclogite xenoliths, which were subject to a detailed petrographical and geochemical study, aimed at their characterisation and comparison to eclogites from on-craton and other off-craton localities. Garnet, clinopyroxene, accessory and secondary minerals were analysed for major element compositions using electron microprobe techniques and garnet and clinopyroxene trace element compositions were determined by Laser Ablation Inductively-Coupled-Plasma Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) techniques. Oxygen isotopic compositions of five garnet samples were obtained using laser flourination techniques, followed by analysis by gas source mass spectrometry. en_ZA
