Certainly, there is NO such thing as “White Turquoise”! White Turquoise is a name used by jewellers for howlite gemstone. Howlite is an opaque silicate mineral with fine copper toned veins in a web-like pattern.
Howlite gemstone is named after Henry How, a 19th century mineralogist, who found it first in Nova Scotia, Canada.
