A nodule of Howlite from Tick Canyon which used to be so common at the location that the material was dyed blue and sold as Turquoise. These days, the location is exhausted and Magnesite nodules are marketed as Howlite with the material sent to China were it is dyed and used for beads and other lapidary products. The color is gray on the outside and white to off white in the interior. This particular specimen does not have any of the spiderweb markings.
Condition: Fairly Good
