Howlite was named in honor of 19th century geologist Henry How, who was the first to write about the stone in the scientific community. How originally called the stone silicoborocalcite. We at Lima Beads are thankful Howlite is now the recognized name since it is so much easier to say!
Howlite is opaque white or light grey with streaks of black, brown, or grey. Because of its porosity, Howlite is often dyed and used as an affordable alternative to turquoise. Howlite is often described as having a porcelain-like appearance and reminds us of marble.
Howlite is frequently found in distinctive cauliflower-like clusters or nodules. It is a calcium borosilicate hydroxide, most often mined in Eastern Canada and California, though found in several other locations around the world.
The stone is said to have a calming effect upon its wearer, and encourages the health of bones and teeth.
