The most abundant mineral in Earth's interior gets a name [Also see Report by Tschauner et al.] The most abundant solid phase in Earth's interior, making up 38% of Earth's volume, is magnesium iron silicate (Mg,Fe)SiO3. This material is known to form a perovskite structure. However, no samples of the mineral can be obtained from Earth's lower mantle; without a well-characterized natural sample, it has not been possible to formally name the mineral.
