A Franklin, New Jersey classic, a mass of Tephorite crystals with green Willemite crystals and some small areas of what seems to be Hodgkinsonite and Friedelite. This is an old specimen that was for many years in several European collections, those labels are included. Tephroite in massive form is not very rare at Franklin, but the tiny, sharp and gemmy crystals are quite rare and not often available.
