    Diamonds from Jagersfontein kimberlite with isotopically light carbon include majoritic garnets and associated minerals that may be superdeep, perhaps from the asthenosphere or transition zone (Tappert et al, 2005). Metals and carbides are very rare in natural diamonds but have been reported in pyroxenitic garnet inclusions within polycrystalline diamond from Venetia kimberlite (Jacob et al, 2003; Fe3C “cohenite”). We describe the occurrence of metallic and carbide inclusions together with their host diamonds from Jagersfontein.
