X-ray powder diffraction data are reported for α-brass with the composition Cu: 63.44±0.04 wt %, Zn: 36.45±0.06 wt %. No valid reference card for this material is present in the JCPDS-ICDD database. The investigated brass composition is cubic (Fm3m) with a0: 3.69612±0.00014 Å, unit cell volume: 50.4938±0.0058 Å3, density calculated: 8.44±0.05 g/cm3, density measured: 8.43±0.03 g/cm3. The X-ray diffraction pattern presented resembles that of deleted reference card 6-657 in great detail.
