Howlite Beads
Howlite BeadsWe're always adding new colors, shapes, and sizes of Howlite beads, so make sure you check back regularly!  Howlite was first discovered in Nova Scotia in 1868 and named after its discoverer, Henry How. Howlite crystals are relatively rare. Aside from its Nova Scotia discovery location, Howlite is also found in Tick Canyon, California. Howlite in its natural state is white. It is often dyed to imitate turquoise because of the convincing similarity of its dark veining patterns.

SmartBeadShopping™ Tip: When you see trade names such as "white turquoise" you should assume it is really howlite. True white turquoise is extremely rare.
