Howlite Turquoise is a beautiful robin's egg blue color, springy and fresh looking! 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.

Dyed howlite can be used to replace the stone it's been colored to replicate. Red howlite serves as an eco-friendly alternative to endangered red coral, while the blue versions can be used in pieces where adding lapis lazuli or Sleeping Beauty turquoise would be cost-prohibitive.
