Howlite is a semi-precious stone first found in Nova Scotia, Canada. It was named after Henry How, the Canadian mineralogist that first discovered it.
Howlite is usually a white stone found with black-grey lines running through it. It is found in nodule formation, much like a white colored turquoise. Howlite is a soft and porous stone and this makes it easy to dye other colors such as light and dark blue. Gemstone cutters will select howlite with white lines and patterns on it, as no two pieces are exactly alike. It is a great stone for jewellery and stone carvings.
Some believe howlite is a good stone for independent people, it is said to help with balance and helps you to become healthy.
