Name:
Named in honor of Louis Jean Cabri (b. 1934), Canadian mineralogist, formerly with Canada Centre for Mineral and Energy Technology (CANMET), Ottawa, a world renown specialist in platinum-group minerals (PGM), for his many contributions to the mineralogy and geochemistry of this group. Cabri described many new PGM species from localities around the world and was the coeditor of Canadian Mineralogist (1975-1982).
