AbstractCarbonatite metasomatism plays an important role in modifying the composition of Earth's mantle, however, its effect on mantle Mg isotopic composition is poorly constrained. Here, we report high precision mineral Mg isotope data for three suites of mantle peridotite xenoliths that experienced variable degrees of carbonatite metasomatism. The delta Mg-26 values of minerals in these xenoliths are variable and range from -0.32 to -0.11 parts per thousand in olivine, from -0.28 to -0.09 parts per thousand in orthopyroxene, from -0.27 to -0.05 parts per thousand in clinopyroxene, from 0.06 to 0.44 parts per thousand in spinel and from -0.61 to -0.37 parts per thousand in garnet. Calculated bulk-rock delta Mg-26 values of the peridotites vary from -0.27 to -0.10 parts per thousand, falling within and slightly higher than the normal mantle range (-0.25 +/- 0.07 parts per thousand). The coexisting minerals are in isotopic equilibrium, with clinopyroxene delta Mg-26 values correlated with the carbonatite metasomatic indices such as MgO and Na2O in orthopyroxene. These results suggest that carbonatite metasomatism does not produce light Mg isotopic signature in mantle peridotites as previously suggested, instead it might slightly elevate their delta Mg-26 values. Therefore, carbonatite-metasomatized peridotites in the mantle cannot be the primary source rocks of low-delta Mg-26 mantle-derived magmas. Instead, fractional crystallization and accumulation of chromite during ascent of the basaltic magmas may explain the isotopically light basalts, as supported by the covariations of delta Mg-26 with chemical indices of chromite crystallization (e.g., Cr, V, Fe and Ti). Consequently, chromite crystallization may significantly influence the physiochemical processes on the genesis of basalts, which would require comprehensive evaluation in future studies.
