Phase relationships for FeS polymorph have been studied at the pressure of 16-20 GPa and temperature of 300-1350 K by in situ X-ray observation using a large volume high-pressure apparatus and a synchrotron radiation. Contrary to Fei's prediction [1], we found the stability field of NiAs-type phase of FeS extending at least to 18 GPa. Results of in situ X-ray observation correspond with the NiAs-hexagonal phase boundary determined by Kusaba et al. [2,3]. Assuming the straight NiAs-hexagonal phase boundary, we estimate that the NiAs-hexagonal-liquid triple junction is located at 39.5 GPa and 2300 K.
