Howlite is a white stone with streaks of gray or black, called inclusions or matrix. Used in many southwest style jewelry pieces in its natural state or it can be dyed to a blue color to imitate turquoise as well as lapis lazuli. Natural Howlite is mined in California and Nova Scotia.
Blue Sodalite is similar to Lapis Lazuli but differs by their white streaks throughout the stone. The mineral sodalite is named for its sodium content. As a gemstone, sodalite is usually deep blue, often with a violet tint, and frequently contains white veins of calcite.
