Typically a kimberlite diatreme has several different geological zones. The upper portion is generally filled with the sedimentary crater facies, the central zone is more typically an in situ massive series of volcanic breccias and the lower regions comprise a complex root zone. Depending on the local degree of erosion, not all zones remain at any particular kimberlite occurrence.
