Mineral chemistry data as well as petrography provide a comprehensive picture of magma crystallization conditions that support the conclusions based on geochemical data. In addition, the chemical composition of minerals such as clinopyroxene, olivine, biotite, feldspar, and Fe-Ti oxides reflect physicochemical parameters (pressure, temperature, and oxygen fugacity), crystal growth history, and melt origin. The pressure, temperature and oxygen fugacity parameters are estimated from chemical data of various rock-forming minerals to provide information about the crystallization of magmas. In this research, our study the mineral chemistry data of the Pargeh area olivine gabbro and monzogabbro rocks in order to determine the physicochemical conditions (temperature and pressure), determine the tectonic environment and provide a general crystallization and emplacement model of the Pargeh mafic magmas.
