35% OFF White Howlite Wolf Cabochon/ backed/seconds

$25.00


1 Medium Wolf Howlite cabochon

41mm x 14mm x 3.35mm
13.5 carats

This is a newer shape for me. It's a running wolf. I really thought this shape would look great in howlite. It gives one the idea of a snowy white wolf running through the forest. (Sorry for getting poetic) It has a crack that will apear like a matric line down the middle.

SECONDS

These is a new type of listing. These are what I call "seconds" as they are left-overs from my jewelry making. It is all howlite but has minor damage to the stone such as a minor crack, missing a piece of backing, poorly cut, etc. They are still usuable but I cannot sell them at full price because of the minor damage to the stone. I would normally sell these to beginning silversmith and craftman students to practice on. I'm no longer near any school so I thought I'd make these available for fun, for those who just want to use them in other projects.

Some of the flaws can be covered by wire wrapping, bezeling, etc.

All my cabochons are backed in hard, black epoxy for stability and strength. If you'd like me to add a sterling silver eyehook, click the option above.

ROCK FACTS:

Howlite

Although cauliflower (or vegetables at all) probably isn’t the first thing that pops into one’s mind when thinking about Howlite, they do actually have a 6 degrees of separation connection. Howlite is found in it’s original state as large cauliflower-like masses. Originally named for Henry How, a 19th century mineralogist, as he was said to be the first to make this discovery in Nova Scotia.

Howlite is a fairly soft gemstone as gemstones go, therefore it takes dye easily; which in turn has allowed Howlite to become an inexpensive alternative to more costly gemstones. It’s natural color is white, gentle and clean with gray and black veins. Dyed with any rich hue of color, it may resemble Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli or Red Coral…one would never have guessed that it began very much resembling a common vegetable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I do custom orders! Click on the Custom Order Request link on the home page or in any one of my listings. I'll let you know if I have those stones. I have LOTS of inventory but not all of it is listed so it's very possible that I may already have what you are looking for.

With any custom request, please provide exact dimensions (length, width, thickness and shape). Pictures are encouraged and welcomed as it makes the custom cutting process much easier.

Are you cabochons made in the USA?

Yes, all my cabochons are american-made. A majority of my stones are mined in the American West--Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, etc. I cut all my stones in my home shop here in sunny Florida.

Care instructions

My stones are very sturdy. They are all backed with a hard black epoxy that increases their strength and stability, but they will crack and break if dropped on a hard surface such as tile or concrete. They are very tough when it comes to setting and bezeling them but don't play catch with them ;)

Can I request a special shape?

Yes, I can cut different shapes than those I have listed. Please click the Custom Order Rquest link on the home page or in any listing. Not everything is cuttable although I can generally make it work. I will let you know if I can do it and then give you an estimate on the project. For totally new shapes, there WILL be an additional "lapidary design fee" of $50 on the order. Sketches, drawings or pictures are encouraged. But exact dimensions are a must.

Do you do silversmithing?

No, I do not do silversmithing. I do no bezel, inlay or solder silver or gold. But I do know many fine silversmiths who would like to help you with your silversmithing needs. Message me and will provide you with some names.

Do you have more of this cabochon or in a different size?

Yes! I have a huge inventory from years of stone cutting. Not all of it is posted in my store. Often I have more than one of the cabochons you are looking for.

Since we are dealing with natural rock they will not be exactly identical in color or matrix, but I can generally get pretty close. I do however have the same shapes in many different, stones colors and sizes.

If I don't have more in stock, I can generally cut what you want but for new cuttings I require a $60 minimum order.

Just click the Custom Order Request link, explain what you want with dimensions, stone type and look and I will give you a price quote.

Can I get an individual stone made into earrings, a necklace or pendant?

Yes! I can make any of my stones into a pair of earrings or pendant. All of my shaped cabochons have this as an option for an extra fee.

If you wish to have a standard cabochon (square, oval, triangle, circle, etc.) made into jewelry, you would have to click the Custom Order Request button in the listing. I would then be able to give you a price quote.

Pair of earrings: Additional $20 (2 stones drilled with sterling silver eyehook, bail and french ear wires)

Pendant: Additional $10 (1 stone drilled with sterling silver eyehook and bail)

Eyehook only: Additional $5 (1 stone drilled with sterling silver eyehook)
