I am working on inclusions in diamonds from the Koffiefontein Mine to provide improved inclusion-based geothermo-barometry. Samples were provided by Jeff Harris and Petra Diamonds.

During my research, I discovered a new mineral as an inclusion in diamond. The IMA approved mineral: Goldschmidtite (K,REE,Sr)(Nb,Cr)O3: is a new perovskite supergroup mineral.
