Shamrock and Emerald were budget reel to reel tape brands manufactured by Irish / Ampex through the 1960s to 1980s. According to experience, the quality of these tapes varied tremendously, depending on when and where you bought them. Mostly they were non-spec tapes based on regular Ampex formulations. We have identified 8 generations of this tape, and this one offered is the Fifth type we identified:

Brown oxide tapes with a graphite backing, tape otherwise used for 8-track cartridges. They do not have sticky shed and can be played without problems. We also offer these as refurbished with their formula called out, as some people want the tape to load into their 8-tracks. Optimized performance for 3-3/4ips.
