The Miocene alkalibasaltic rocks cover the northeastern part of Jordan, within Harrat Al-Shaamplateau. The volcanic concentrated along the Dead Sea boundary and spreadaround the north east of Jordan area, and was considered as interplat volcanicfield in Jordan. The volcanic basalt is associated with xenoliths fragmentalrocks or xenocryst minerals. Nine samples were collected from the study areaand analyzed for XRD, XRF and SEM. These samples presented the xenoliths rocksand minerals existing in the study area. This study is focused on the garnetand pyroxene xenoliths minerals in Tulayl Al-Hasna area within UfayhimFormation. Hand samples are characterized by coarse aggregates of garnets up to2 cm in diameter with dark brown to red color, and highly fresh fractures.Also, the pyroxene
