This chapter outlines the petrography of ultramafic and ultrabasic rocks, and presents a preliminary classification of the petrological associations in which they occur. Many of the associations, but not all of them, are described in detail in the following chapters. Within the classification there is a guide to the chapters dealing with the various associations, and for those associations inadequately covered in this volume reference is made to one or more review papers. This is followed by O'Hara's account of the mineral facies of ultrabasic rocks.
