Electron microprobe data on phosphide grains detected for the first time in basalts from volcanic edifices in the Sea of Japan are presented. The find of phosphides can testify to the endogenic source of phosphorus and, consequently, volcanogenic hydrothermal origin of phosphorites in the Sea of Japan.
