Howlite is named after the Canadian mineralogist/geologist/chemist Henry How, who discovered the stone in 1868 on Nova Scotia. 🍁 This Canadian beauty can be recognised by its marble-ish white colour and black veins. Howlite is very porous, which makes it very suitable for durable colouring, just like the chalcedony. Turquoise coloured howlite is super pretty and is officially called Turquenite. Amongst others, howlite is found in the United States and Canada.
Howlite is associated with the zodiac sign Libra. Read more on which gemstones match which zodiac signs on this page!
