Messelite is an uncommon hydrous, calcium, iron, manganese phosphate. This is exceptional for the species, from a find Rod Tyson made only a few years ago on a helicopter trip in. Glassy and gemmy orangey brown siderite crystals, to 3 mm across, underlie lustrous greenish gray botryoids of messelite, to 1 cm across.
