Howlite is a calcium silicoborate that is naturally white, often with a dark gray or black spider-web matrix. Howlite is commonly dyed to imitate turquoise and lapis lazuli. Howlite is named after mineralogist Henry How, who first discovered the gemstone in Nova Scotia during the 19th century. Howlite is the stone of memory, knowledge and progress, and is said to encourage reasoning, observation, discernment, patience and tact. It also is believed to eliminate pain, stress and anger, and help balance calcium levels in the body, aiding absorption and distribution. North America is the world's primary source of howlite.
