Summary: The subaerial decomposition of struvite has been investigated at room temperature (21±2° C), from which it has been concluded that the decomposition product is newberyite. X-ray power patterns of newberyite, both from a diffractometer and Debye-Scherrer cameras, are given. Comparison of these patterns with other newberyite patterns suggest that the camera pattern is more reproducible; this may be due to grain orientation in the diffraetometer mounts.
