Emmonsite is a very rare IRON TELLURITE that is known from only a few locales in the world, and then usually only as scattered microcrystals. I have seen only a few specimens ever that have crystals larger than this. This specimen has, also, extremely rich coverage over a large display area, that makes it fairly significant but also pretty - it looks like green sugar was dropped on the matrix.
