Howlite was named after Henry How, the man who supposedly discovered this beautiful semi-precious gemstone in America.
Naturally white and grey howlite gemstones are great textural imposters and as such have been used to imitate blue and white turquoise, lapis lazuli and other gemstones through processes of dying.
Howlite sits on the lower side of the Mohs scale for hardness and as such should be treated with love and care. Be sure not to expose your howlite jewellery to chemicals or acidic materials to preserve its beauty.
