Among the Mediterranean lamproites, the Jumilla occurrence deserves particular interest since it contains significant amounts of carbonates and an apatite deposit. Jumillites (olivine-richterite madupitic lamproites) contain olivine (Mg# 89-93), phlogopite (Mg# 72-93), Fe-rich sanidine, spinels, K-rich richterite, clinopyroxene, fluorapatite and analcite (probably derived from leucite). Analcite can be locally very abundant (up to 40 % vol). The magmas were mostly peralkaline with high MgO (13-17 %), Cr (740-930 ppm), Ni (560-670 ppm), P205 (1.15-2.26 %), Ba, REE (Ce/Yb up to 160), Th (93-161) contents and high 87Sr/86Sr ratios (0.71378-0.71680). The rocks exhibit wide chemical variations which cannot be explained by fractional crystallization or by prograde partial melting of the same source. Carbonate-bearing assemblages are also present in the form of late crystallized aggregates in the groundmass (CARB-i) and as thin veins and infiltrates (CARB-ii) in the jumillite rocks. The carbonate assemblages and the jumillite magma are in some degree genetically related as suggested, for instance, by the Sr isotope data of the apatite.
