A scintillator for use as a gamma ray or like radiation detector is composed of a single crystal of cerium-activated lutetium oxyorthosilicate having the general formulation Ce.sub.2x Lu.sub.2(1-x) SiO.sub.5. In a borehole logging application, the detector is mounted in a logging sonde with a high energy neutron source, for movement through a borehole traversing earth formations. Gamma radiation from the surrounding formations is detected and analyzed to provide information concerning hydrocarbons in the formations.
