"grep" in TDS:tex// found one package only: xcookybooky.
(If emerald is not/will not be included in TL/MiKTeX, then
someone might ask the author to check for emerald.sty and

CTAN:fonts/emerald/README says:

In the acompanying files <file name>.txt for Font <font name> I found the
following pattern:

| please note,

| and no restrictions have been placed on its use.
| "<font name>" may be freely redistributed,
| provided that this text file accompanies the clipfont.
