For the first time results obtained from gamma-ray excitation of a low-dimensional lead-halide-based perovskite-type organic-inorganic scintillator crystal are presented. Scintillation and luminescence properties have been studied of a 5x6x1 mm3 single crystal of is(phenethylammonium) trabromoplumbate(II), (C6H5(CH2) 2NH3)2PbBr4. Excitation, emission, pulse-height and decay-time spectra are presented. The light yield is 10,000 photons per MeV, measured at 662 keV gamma-ray energy. The main decay time under pulsed x-ray excitation is 9.4 ns.
