XRD_ANALYSIS:

SJ-1 H3O-(10-20%) Jarosite, Box #1, 45 kV - 35 mA, 7.4-9.5 keV
SJ-1 H3O-(10-20%) Jarosite, Box #3, 40 kV - 30 mA, 7.3-9.5 keV
Reference: JCPDS #31-650 (hydronium jarosite)
Found: member of alunite group, spacings match hydronium jarosite

Comment: Good correspondence with the JCPDS data for synthetic hydronium jarosite and the brownish color suggest this alunite is iron- and hydronium-rich. The two samples appear to duplicate each other. Both patterns show a very very weak peak at 2.38 angstroms. Sharp peaks indicate good crystallinity."
