Highlights •The single crystal of Na2Nd2O(BO3)2 has been obtained for the first time.•It has an extremely high Nd3+ concentration (1.21×1022ions/cm3).•Its absorption and emission spectra have been investigated.•The spectral parameters have also been calculated.•Na2Nd2O(BO3)2 might be a good candidate for microchip laser media.
