  7. Orthopyroxenite is an ultramafic rock that contains more than 90 % orthopyroxene. Orthopyroxenites are usually found as dikes in peridotite massifs in the mantle sections of ophiolites and in orogenic peridotites. They are also observed as xenoliths or part of composite xenoliths entrained in diorites and basalt.
