Three zones of layered series - lower, middle, and upper - composed of dunites and plagiodunites, troctolites and olivine gabbros, gabbros and gabbronorites, respectively, have been recognized in the Luchina massif. The melt that produced the massif rocks was of picrite-basaltic composition (15-16% MgO), and its crystallization took place at 1300-1000
