a Compositions of plagioclase cores and rims from gabbros of this study plotted with the standard deviations for the analyses. Note that the distributions of core and rim analyses are nearly indistinguishable (inset plots). Line indicates 1:1 proportion. b Compositions of cores and rims of clinopyroxene from Hole 735B. The data are from Dick et al. (2001) and Angeloni and Dick (1990) (troctolite dikes from the upper 550 m of Hole 735B). The solid black line indicates 1:1 proportion. The core-rim information is not generally available for the upper 550 m of Hole 735B
