Howlite

Howlite, Dyed Turquoise Color

 


Howlite is often presented in it's dyed form, as shown above. Sometimes used to imitate turquoise, it's natural black or brown veining lends itself well to this. Naturally occurring in snow white coloring as shown in the rough stone below.  As this is a pourous stone, it accepts dyes well so it is mostly found in it's non-white form.
