History & Origin:

Howlite is a calcium borosilicate hydroxide mineral with a distinct marble-like pattern. It was discovered near Windsor, Nova Scotia in 1868, but can now be found in locations such as the US, Mexico, Germany, Russia & Turkey. Named after its discoverer, Henry How, Howlite grows in masses, sometimes in nodules resembling cauliflower, & rarely forms crystals. Because of its porous texture, Howlite is commonly dyed vibrant colours & is often used to imitate Turquoise.

Metaphysical Properties:

Known for its soothing & gentle energy, this crystal helps slow things down, inspiring patience & peace on a physical, mental & emotional level. If you feel rushed, stressed, angry or overwhelmed, this stone can release these feelings & replace them with relaxation & comfort. This crystal can make it feel as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. It is especially beneficial for over-thinkers or individuals who have a hard time falling asleep or meditating. Howlite clears the mind & raises awareness, strengthening concentration, memory & focus, as well as inspiring new ideas & a thirst for knowledge. 

How to use:

Hold in your hand to soothe worry & turbulent emotions, such as rage or anger. Place under pillow or on bedside table to bring a restful sleep & ease racing thoughts. Place in your workspace or home to bring focus, concentration & calmness.
