We report here for the first time the pressure dependence of the electrical resistivity of ferroselite ( ) and frohbergite up to 8 GPa. The synthetic ferroselite shows a pressure induced marcasite-to-NiAs type structural phase transition at 6.8 GPa and frohbergite shows the transition at 5.7 GPa. The transition was observed with a discontinuous resistivity decrease by 0.9 times. We also present here the XRD results on the and . The relevance of the phase transition to Martian mineral chemistry is discussed.
