This papers examines structural properties of the recently developed shearlet coorbit spaces in higher dimensions. We prove embedding theorems for subspaces of shearlet coorbit spaces resembling shearlets on the cone in three dimensions into Besov spaces. The results are based on general atomic decompositions of Besov spaces. Furthermore, we establish trace results for these subspaces with respect to the coordinate planes. It turns out that in many cases these traces are contained in lower dimensional shearlet coorbit spaces.
