This piece was created using fine cut and ground marble for the 5 strands. The marble is accented with splashes of mystic black quartz and tiny sterling beads. For the upper part of the necklace we have used howlite, onyx and onyx beads that have been inlaid with Australian opal.
Howlite is naturally white and often has a dark gray or black matrix. It can be mislabeled as white turquoise or buffalo turquoise but buffalo is calcite and Howlite is a borate mineral, which is mined in Canada and parts of the Northern U.S. Since howlite is porous it is easily dyed to imitate turquoise or coral but its natural state is white or a soft creamy color.
White howlite does pair well with Buffalo turquoise and we put the two together in the pendant necklace of this set.
Stones: Marble, Howlite, Onyx and Onyx inlaid with Australian Opal.
