Harrat Hutaymah is a Quaternary alkali basalt volcanic field that is rich in tuff cones and ultramafic xenoliths (Thornber, 1990). It lies NE of the trend of the main lava fields of Saudi Arabia and is one of the smaller fields. One K-Ar date of 1.80 +/- 0.05 was obtained from a lava flow cut by a tuff ring.
