Howlite Cabochons

Howlite is a calcium borosilicate hydroxide. Howlite is a white semi precious gemstone material with grayish black veining, that makes for lovely designer cabochons.

Howlite is found in massive "cauliflower" shaped nodules.  Named for its discoverer Henry How, a Nova Scotia geologist who discovered it in 1868.

Howlite is one of those gemstones that is more famous for imitating another gemstone. Often the other gemstone is turquoise because, though Howlite is always white or gray, it can accept dyes fairly easily and is often dyed sky blue.

Howlite designer semi precious stone cabochons are sometimes sold as White Turquoise or White Buffalo.

Our Howlite cabochons are from Tick Canyon in Los Angeles County, California.  This mine stopped being worked for borax in the early 1900's and the material is waste product from the mine. It was collected off the dumps for many years, but the area has since been closed by housing developments.

Howlite cabochons are fairly soft, about a 3.5. These jewelry stones take a great polish and look like porcelain.

Metaphysical Properties of Howlite: Howlite is said to decrease selfishness, stress, pain, and rudeness. It increases tact. It is also said to help bones, teeth, calcium levels and leg cramps. And it heightens creativity!
