This is a two-piece specimen-a nodule of the mineral howlite that has been sawed in half, and the faces polished. The color of this specimen is white, with gray veins of impurities. I find this to be an attractive specimen.

A cluster of at least 10 Howlite crystals rests on the quartzite base of this piece. The cluster is generally in good condition, as only one crystal appears to be broken. These crystals reach lengths of 0.4" (11 mm) and show excellent monoclinic prismatic form that is almost spiky in habit. All have a dull brown color and a pearly luster, and are translucent to dimly transparent. The base on which they rest appears to be made up of brown quartzite that is coated with a dull crust (likely a borate mineral), and is hot-glued to an acrylic base.

A misshapen Howlite nodule makes up this hand specimen. The nodule shows considerable breakage in one area, but this does not appear to be fresh. It has a white color, but shows considerable dark veining and is stained a dull brown over much of its surface. It shows no luster and is opaque, and no host rock is present.
