These Natural, Cream, Howlite Free Form, Gemstone, Chips are given a matte finish rather than a traditional bright polish. This matte appearance offers a soft look for coordinating with other matte surfaces or creating visual interest when paired with shiny gemstones or metals.

Beads range from about 5mm to 8mm.

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.

Howlite is now the recognized name since it is so much easier to say!

Naturally, 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.

It 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.

Howlite is said to have a calming effect upon its wearer, and encourages the health of bones and teeth.

Howlite is a soft stone, so it can easily be scratched. With its calcium structure, it is also vulnerable to many chemical cleaners, acidic perspiration and damage from sand and dust. To clean Howlite, use lukewarm, slightly soapy water and a soft cloth (cotton is best). Rinse well to remove residue and pat dry. If your Howlite is dyed, do not immerse the stone. Store Howlite wrapped in soft cloth within a separate box or pouch to reduce the likelihood of damage.

Howlite in its natural state is a subtle stone for use in jewelry designs. The white-and-dark-grey coloring make it an unassuming neutral for use with brighter colors, although the stone is sometimes showcased on its own with dark grey or black accent beads strung between larger Howlite shapes.
