Howlite was named after chemist Henry How, who discovered it in Canada in 1868.
Named in 1868 for Canadian chemist Henry How, who discovered it, Howlite is a calcium borosilicate hydroxide. Crystals are tabular but rare; generally it forms nodular masses. It is usually white, often with veins of other minerals running through the nodules. Howlite has been long known amongst Native American tribes as the “White Buffalo Stone”, famous for its porcelain white coloring, pronounced with grayish veins. After being a spiritual key-component of Native American traditions, Howlite gained popularity amongst jewelers around the world.

Behind the scene
All of our products are designed and developed in house, from the initial sketch to prototype. Cutting stones to reveal the inner, layered beauty which takes millions of years to form, requires high precision and meticulous skills from our craftsmen in Germany. Each cut results in a unique stone face. It is then sent to our Swiss partner who carefully crafted every mechanism of the watch. Our close collaborations are built on experience and expertise in different areas alongside a shared passion for detail.
