Turquoise Howlite Earrings
Howlite is generally a white stone with veining, or ‘matrix’, in gray or brown. It is named after Henry How, a Canadian chemist, geologist and mineralogist, who discovered it in 1868 in Nova Scotia. Howlite is very porous and can be dyed just about any color (similar to cotton). The most popular color is sky blue, as seen here.
