Gabbroic rocks of Sarkobeh region are exposed as several intrusive bodies with a post-cretaceous age in north of Khomein city, Northern Sanandaj-Sirjan Zone. These igneous rocks are intruded in shale and limestone units which belong to cretaceous age. Main minerals forming the rocks are clinopyroxene, plagioclase and opaque. Microprobe analyses on the clinopyroxenes of the gabbros show a diopside composition with no chemical zoning. On the basis of geothermometry, crystallization-temperature yielded minimum temperatures of 550–700 ºC and crystallization-pressure is less than 5 kbar for the diopsides. AlVI/AlIV ratio is lower than 0.25 indicating a low pressure condition for gabbroic magma in the studied area. The clinopyroxenes composition show that they have crystallized from an alkaline basic magma. They plot in the within-plate alkalic basalt filed tectonomagmaticlly.
