It is named after Henry How, the scientist who brought this crystal to academic awareness in 1868 after finding deposits of the crystal in Nova Scotia.
However, the stone has received other names as well, most recently Snow Leopard Stone, for its resemblance to the fur of the beautiful large cat of Central and South Asia ~ and likely because these beautiful creatures also make a striking howl.
As with all white sacred gemstones, Howlite can bring peace and clarity of mind-its black lines, however, signify that the mind is still at work, focused, not shut off.
