    Here we present a new test of the equivalence principle designed to search for the possible violation of gravitational parity using test bodies with different chiralities. The test bodies are a pair of left- and right-handed quartz crystals, whose gravitational acceleration difference is measured by a rotating torsion pendulum. The result shows that the acceleration difference towards Earth Δaleft-right=[-1.7±4.1(stat) ±4.4(syst)]×10-15ms-2 (1-σ statistical uncertainty), correspondingly the E?tv?s parameter η=[-1.2±2.8(stat) ±3.0(syst)] ×10-13. This is the first reported experimental test of the equivalence principle for chiral masses and opens a new way to the search for the possible parity-violating gravitation.
