Granitoid magmatism is generally the consequence of basaltic mantle magmatism. , 1988). See Figure 4 for a hypothetical cross-section through a mature, differentiated, continental crust. + Figure 4. Cartoon section through a hypothetical terrane of evolved continental crust. Upper mantle rocks are shown densely stippled. Shown in black, is a large mass of under-plated mafic material, now mostly pyroxene granulites. Restitic granulites, formed by fluid-absent partial fusion of supracrustal rocks, surround the under- and intra-plated mafic rocks.

Fyfe. 1973). Petrological. geochemical and isotopic studies have demonstrated that most granitoids are the products of crustal fusion, with or without some contamination by juvenile, mantle-derived magma. Furthermore, thermal modelling has shown that, in most cases, the heat required for regional granulite metamorphism must be, at least partially, derived from mantle sources. Thus, all the necessary ingredients are potentially available for a single, coherent model to interconnect all these phenomena.
