- Calcium titanium oxide
The mineral was discovered in the Ural mountains of
Russiaby Gustav Rose in 1839 and is named after Russian mineralogist, L. A. Perovski (1792-1856).
It lends its name to the class of compounds which have the same type of
crystal structureas CaTiO3, known as the perovskitestructure.
Perovskite is found in contact
It is found in some silica-undersaturated
igneous rocks, such as nepheline syeniteand melilitite, and rare carbonatites.
Perovskite also is a common mineral in the
Ca-Al-rich inclusions (CAIs) found in some chondritic meteorites.
