The haon tree is a deciduous tree that can grow up to a hundred feet tall with a wide and rounded crown. The tree is distinctive for the appearance of its bark and leaves. The bark tends to be very smooth with a purplish-grey tint, having an almost glowing quality. The leaves are nearly translucent, allowing light to shine through them. Haon nuts are edible, with a similar quality as chestnuts.

The wood of the haon tree has no special magical properties. Petrified haon is valued by jewelers.

Description:   A silvery sheen graces the surface of this rectangular chunk of rock. Past the many flaws and imperfections, the purplish-grey crystal still contains a grain pattern that can be identified as that of haon.
