Abstract: The Yesilova ophiolite located in the Alpine zone. This work deals with differentiation mechanism of ultramafic cumulate in ophiolite. Generally, the sequence consists of gabbro and plagiogranite. The petrographic and petrolgichal properties of it show that the layering in gabbros are products of a differentiation by fractional crystallization insitu. Because it has ferrous compounds (magnetite, hematite) by means of volatiles (H 2 O, CO 2) that evidence magma at high temperatures (>700 °C). Ferrous liquids ar…
