What is Howlite?
Howlite is a borate mineral found in sedimentary rock. It was first discovered in Canada in 1868 by Henry How, a Canadian chemist, mineralogist, and geologist. A group of miners brought it to his attention when they came across it while mining, finding it to be a nuisance because it was harder to mine than gypsum.
Henry How named the mineral “silico-boro-calcite”, but later it was given the name Howlite by James Dwight Dana, an American geologist, and mineralogist.
- Visual characteristics of Howlite used in this White Howlite Bracelet
- At the source, Howlite is usually found in irregularly shaped nodules that look a bit like the head of cauliflower. Howlite in crystal form (as shown in the above picture) is rare.
- Howlite has a white marble-like appearance with threaded gray, black, or brown veins running through it. Some forms of Howlite are just pure white, however.
- Howlite is a porous stone that can absorb dye well, which is why it’s often used to imitate other gems.
