Semi-precious Howlite Beads

For unique jewellery making options, why not consider the range of Howlite beads from Cooksongold. A unique stone formed of borate mineral, this is a visually appealing natural stone characterized by its distinctive shades that vary from white to grey to black. As a natural stone, its unique veining creates an appealing marbled surface.


Gemstone Specifications: Howlite measures 3-3.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, an incredibly soft stone so care must be taken. Howlite is a borate mineral and can be characterized by its chalky white colour. Howlite can however be dyed due to its porous texture. Our stock offering of howlite stones are available in sizes starting from 4.00mm and going up to 10.00mm and are sold in 16”/40cm strands. All beads have a thread hole size of 1mm.


For a unique addition to your jewellery making designs, consider the round semi-precious howlite beads. Browse the range or why not check the full selection of loose gemstones for jewellery making, online today.
