Fine quality Howlite stone beads

Howlite and Magnesite are both porous stones which readily accept colour and, when dyed 'blue', are often used in fashion jewellery to imitate Turquoise. Stone which has been treated in this way is often called 'Turquenite'

We advise all jewellery-makers to beware of 'Turquenite' which is falsely labelled as 'Turquoise' when seeking the genuine article
