Single crystab of the perovskites Pb2 FeTa06 and Pb2CoW06 (abbreviated by PFT and PC:W in this text) have been grown from a PbO flux in sealed platinum crucibles of 30-180 mL volume, with and without using the accelerated crucible rotation technique (ACRT). The typical crystal size was 0.5-5 mm edge length for PFT (aggregates of intergrown cubes) and 3-10 mm for PCW (cubes and cubo-octahedra). Both compounds are black with a metallic luster in reflected light and are red-brown in transmission. The crystals were subsequently characterized by means of X-ray powder diffraction, chemical analysis, optical domain studies, birefringence, absorption spectra, and elec. resistivity.
