This beautiful White Howlite necklace is a part of our Bee Natural series. It’s perfect with a suit at the office, an evening out or with your favorite t-shirt and jeans. Natural howlite is a snow-white stone with fine grey veining. It is named after its Canadian geologist discoverer, Henry How, during the 19th century. Its early deposits were seen in How’s place at Nova Scotia. Howlite is often called the “White Buffalo Stone.” In recent years, California has become the world’s biggest source of howlite followed by Canada, United States, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland.
Since Howlite is a natural stone, each necklace is unique and colors may vary.
Our necklaces are handcrafted using the finest materials to ensure that your necklace will be a beautiful addition to your wardrobe for many years to come. Howlite is a soft stone, so it can easily be scratched. With its calcium structure, it is also vulnerable to many chemical cleaners, acidic perspiration and damage from sand and dust. To clean howlite, use lukewarm, slightly soapy water and a soft cloth (cotton is best). Rinse well to remove residue and pat dry. If your howlite is dyed, do not immerse the stone. Store howlite wrapped in soft cloth within a separate box or pouch to reduce the likelihood of damage.
