The chemical composition of mineral Belovite-(Ce) is indicated by (Sr,Ce,Na,Ca)5(PO4)3(OH). Belovite-(Ce) is most commonly found in Alkalic igneous rocks. Mineral Belovite-(Ce) is most commonly found at its type of locality at Mt. Karnasurt, Lovozero massif, Kola Peninsula, Russia. Belovite-(Ce) was named for Nikolai Vassilievich Belov (1891-1982), mineralogist and crystallographer, Institute of Crystallography, Moscow, Russia. Belovite-(Ce) is known to crystallize in the trigonal system of crystal formation.

Mineral Belovite-(Ce) is commonly found showing indistinct cleavage when viewed under polarizing microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. Belovite-(Ce) is most commonly found colored honey yellow in hand sample. The specific gravity measure of mineral Belovite-(Ce) is usually found 4.19 grams per cubic centimeters. Most crystals of mineral Belovite-(Ce) is found transparent in appearance. Mineral Belovite-(Ce) is also commonly found showing brittle to uneven fracture showing very brittle fracture producing uneven fragments when viewed under polarizing microscope used in the field o optical mineralogy. The hardness measure of mineral Belovite-(Ce) when it is evaluated using the Mohs scale method is usually found 5. Mineral Belovite-(Ce) is most commonly found showing vitreous to greasy luster when viewed in reflected light of polarizing microscope for mineralogists. Mineral Belovite-(Ce) is most commonly found leaving a white streak when rubbed on a white porcelain streak plate. Mineral Belovite-(Ce) is most commonly found showing uniaxial negative figure when viewed in reflected light of polarizing microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. It is also most commonly found showing 0.0200 birefringence. Mineral Belovite-(Ce) is found to be radioactive after chemical evaluation.
