Deep processes and primary diamond deposits

© V.V. Gordienko

Processes of formation and transportation of kimberlite magma and diamonds in the upper mantle and the Earth's crust have been considered. Analysis corresponds to the ideas of advection-polymorph hypothesis. The Klifford rule has been considered, the depth of the main diamond generation and the depth of primary source of magma have been identified.
