Here you find Smyks’ assortment of beads made of howlite. Howlite, also known as “white buffalo stone” or “white buffalo turquoise”, is an almost translucent semi-precious stone with grey or black veining. Because of its natural translucency, it can easily be dyed. Dyed varieties have for a long time been used as turquoise imitation. Pure and completely transperant howlite crystals are very rare, the largest crystal ever found measured only 1 cm.  At Smyks, you will find howlite beads which have been dyed white in order to showcase the stones’ beautiful black and brown veins.
