The pure nuclear spin alignments of 8Li and 8B were produced from the nuclear spin polarization applying the β-NMR method. The alignment correlation terms in the β-ray angular distribution of the mirror pair 8Li and 8B were observed to limit the G parity irregular term in the weak nuclear current. The significant deviation due to the forbidden matrix elements between the alignment correlation terms and the β-α correlation terms was observed. The determination of the alignment correlation terms was essential to extract the G-parity violating induced tensor term without the influence of the forbidden term in the vector current.
