Background:

The Santo Domingo volcanic field lies in the center of the state of San Luis Potosí in the southern Basin and Range province of central México. Located about 50 km NE of the Ventura volcanic field, Santo Domingo consists of a group of four maars in the NW part of the field, along with several alkalic cinder cones and associated lava flows to the SE. The largest maar, La Joya de los Contreras, is 750 x 1000 m in diameter. The Santo Domingo maars are the source of mantle-derived spinel-lherzolite xenoliths and deep-crustal granulite xenoliths.
