Light brown, opaque hübnerite blades, moderately abundant on a massive to crystalline quartz matrix. Individual blades reach about 1.1 cm, and most are not terminated. In some places a quartz druse covers the hübnerite. Hübnerite is rather rare in California; Mindat lists just eight state-wide localities for the species, with the Advance Mine being perhaps the most famous of these.
