Howlite from Canada
Howlite is the stone of calmness, comfort, knowledge, memory and progress. It helps relieve an overactive mind. Some say that holding a piece of Howlite has the same effect as spending an hour at a spa. It has the ability to heal mentally, physically and emotionally.
When it comes to spiritual and emotional powers, it’s believed that it heightens awareness and patience. Howlite is a calming stone and it can help its wearer to reduce their own levels of stress and anger, as well as anger that is directed towards them.
It absorbs negative energy and its calming qualities are thought to also help reduce insomnia as it relieves and unburdens an overactive mind.
In terms of physical healing powers, it’s said that Howlite can help to balance calcium levels and strengthen its wearer’s bones and teeth.
Fun Facts about Howlite:
Henry How named the mineral “silico-boro-calcite”, but later it was given the name Howlite by James Dwight Dana, an American geologist and mineralogist.
Howlite is perhaps best known for being an imitation gemstone, as it can be dyed different colors to look like semi-precious gemstones such as Turquoise and Coral. Howlite has a white marble-like appearance with threaded gray, black or brown veins running through it. Some forms of Howlite are just pure white however. Howlite is a porous stone that can absorb dye well, which is why it’s often used to imitate other gems.
