This is a 1.6 cm cluster of radiating howlite crystals standing upright on a plate of anhydrite. The howlite crystals are sharp, with good lustre and translucence. In very good condition – on close inspection, a few small missing tips. These howlite crystals sparkle.
About These Howlites

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