Howlite got its name from the geologist Henry How. It is white in color, features gray veins and it has been widely used to imitate other rarer minerals. Due to its porous nature, it can absorb the dye very well. It is considered to protect against negative energy and the “evil eye”.
All minerals used for the creation of our kombolois are mostly gemstones used to craft jewelry. Please treat your komboloi with care. Inclusions, cracks and breakage surfaces are a natural phenomenon and should never be associated with wear and tear.
