Named as the Fe2+ analogue of ericssonite. It occurs only at the co-type localities at the Esquire No.7 and Esquire No. 8 claims along Big Creek in California, USA. It crystallizes late in a sequence of minerals that resulted from fluid interaction with quartz-sanbornite veins along the margin of the vein and the country rock. It is associated with anandite, bazirite, celsian, devitoite, quartz, and titantaramellite. It appears as dark red-brown masses composed of irregular, undulating, striated, bladed crystals.
