Howlite gets its name from the gentleman that discovered it - Henry How. The 19th century geologist originally located the stone in Nova Scotia. Also incorrectly referred to as White Turquoise, American Turquoise or White Jasper. Said to be the stone of memory, knowledge and progress, and to encourage reasoning, observation, discernment, patience and tact. It also is believed to eliminate pain, stress and anger. Howlite is naturally white with the occasional gray patch and black spider-web markings. These were difficult to photograph but are white. Sold as temporary strung 40cm (approx) strands.
