About DysanalyteHide

From the Greek δυσαυάλυτος, hard to undo, in allusion to the difficulty of analysis.

A Nb-bearing (usually 5-10 mas.% of Nb2O5, sometimes up to 26 mas.%) variety of Perovskite
Originally described from Badloch Quarry, Orberg Mt. - Badberg Mt. area, Schelingen, Kaiserstuhl, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
