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.
