Detailed Description

This is a superb 1.8 cm group of sharp, lustrous, gemmy howlite crystals. This beautiful group is in a radial arrangement, and has nice contrast with the anhydrite. In excellent condition – I can only find one missing crystal. A gorgeous howlite specimen.

About These Howlites

The howlite crystals from Bras D’Or Lake, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia are the best known – to date, this is the world’s only locality to produce howlite crystals, other than a California locality with microscopic ones.

This place can be a little rough… which is a very good thing in some ways, and less so in others!
