  #1 Color of 2011



Lapis Howlite is a nice, white stone that is commonly dyed to look like much more expensive stones.
Lapis Lazuli is expensive - Lapis Howlite is dyed to look a bit like it. VERY dyed. Usually the dye job is pretty good. The rinse job sometimes is not. Please soak items made from this material in the sink before using them!

HOWLITE (Purple)

Purple Howlite is dyed to look like Sugulite, a very expensive gemstone. Web-like black streaks often characterize this mineral. It polishes well and has a porcelaneous luster, often crystals are opaque to translucent. Howlite is mined largely in California.

HOWLITE (Turquoise)

Just like the Howlite Lapis, above, this stone has been dyed to look like a much more expensive stone. Turquoise is expensive - Turquoise Howlite is dyed to look a bit like it. This product usually is not dyed as much as the Lapis Howlite. Still, please soak these in the sink before using them!


Howlite in it's natural form is quite white, completely opaque, and usually has faint grey to black matrix marks throughout. The samples shown here are about as dark of matrix as we ever see - usually it will be fainter.
