The title compound, Nd3Fe5O12 (NdIG), has an iron garnet structure. One of the Fe atoms is coordinated by six O atoms in a slightly distorted octa-hedral geometry and has site symmetry. The other Fe atom is coordinated by four O atoms in a slightly distorted tetra-hedral geometry and has site symmetry. The FeO6 octa-hedron and FeO4 tetra-hedron are linked together by corners. The Nd atom is coordinated by eight O atoms in a distorted dodeca-hedral geometry and has 222 site symmetry. The O atoms occupy general positions.
