HOWLITE –is a silicate mineral. An opaque stone with a sub-vitrea lustre. Howlite was discovered at Tick Canyon, California in 1868 by Henry Howa Canadian chemist, geologist and mineralogist. In appearance, it is white with fine gray or black veins in an erratic, often web-like pattern. Because of its porous texture, howlite can be easily dyed to imitate other minerals, especially turquoise because of the superficial similarity of the veining patterns and is then marketed as turquenite.Howlite is also sold in its natural state, under the trade names of "white turquoise" or "white buffalo turquoise," Howlite is commonly used to make decorative objects such as small carvings or jewellery components.
