White Howlite stone is a white or light grey mineral found in evaporite deposits. Its unique appearance results from its porous structure, which is full of tiny holes and voids. When cut and polished, it takes on a glossy sheen, making it popular for use in jewelry and other decorative items.
White Howlite is named after Henry How, a 19th-century mineralogist who first discovered it in Nova Scotia, Canada.
White Howlite is sometimes referred to as White Turquoise.
