Natural Howlite is 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 rosary is unique and colors may vary.
Our rosaries are handcrafted using the finest and strongest beading wire to assure that your rosary will be an heirloom for many years to come. Howlite is a soft stone, so it can easily be scratched. To clean howlite, use lukewarm, slightly soapy water and a soft cloth (cotton is best). Rinse well to remove residue and pat dry. Store howlite wrapped in soft cloth within a separate box or pouch to reduce the likelihood of damage.
