Abstract

Titanate minerals of the crichtonite series (AM (sub 21) O (sub 38) , A = Sr in crichtonite; M = Ti, Fe, Cr) reported from mantle peridotite xenoliths associated with kimberlites appear to be solid solutions of several named end-members (mostly Ba, Sr, K, Ca) that contain some REE. Electron microprobe, X-ray and instrumental neutron activation analyses are reported and discussed.
