Backscattered electron micrographs illustrating the melt extraction technique: Overall view of the lower part of an experimental charge, showing the graphite container (black), the partially molten pyroxenite (grey), and a basaltic microdike showing a large pool of glass. The partially molten pyroxenite has a small fraction of interstitial melt (3.4wt.%) in equilibrium with Cpx, Opx, Plg, Sp and Gt. Scales: 100 ┬Ám. (modified from Fig.1 in Lambart et al., 2009)
