Most abundant mineral on Earth named after P.W. Bridgman

Percy Bridgman (1882-1961) pioneered the use of high pressure to study the minerals of Earth's crust and mantle. Among the honors he received was the 1949 Nobel physics prize. Now Bridgman has the posthumous honor of having a mineral named after him - and not just any mineral: Bridgmanite is the most abundant on Earth.
