▪ Falster, A.U. & Simmons, W.B. (2019): An Unusual Occurrence of Two Lithiophilite Pods with Narrow Interconnection and Two Types of Rhodochrosite Mineralization At the Emmons Pegmatite, Oxford Co., Maine. Canadian Mineralogist, 57, 733-734.

Abstract:
The Emmons pegmatite is located on the eastern slope of Uncle Tom Mountain in Greenwood, Oxford County, Maine. At times, the Emmons pegmatite has been referred to as the Uncle Tom Mountain quarry. The Emmons pegmatite is the species-richest pegmatite in Maine with currently 112 species.
A recent find of two initially separate appearing lithiophilite pods eventually was seen to be linked with a narrow connecting strand of lithiophilite. The maximum dimension of the two pods was a little over 1.5 m. The pods are surrounded by ball muscovite and the shape of the pods suggests an immiscible phosphate melt.
