Did you know?

Howlite was named in 1868 by Canadian chemist Henry How, who discovered it.  It is a soft, light, chalky mineral usually white, often with veins of other minerals running through the nodules.  When dyed, it resembles Turquoise, and unscrupulous dealers have been known to pass it off as Turquoise.

Howlite is said to give determination to succeed, by formulating ambitions and helping you to achieve them.  It is particularly effective for empowering women and young people as it is a gentle stone.  A good stone for improving whatever you already possess through the mixture of perseverance and vision, whether creatively or educationally.  It is a calming stone which stills the mind and is a great antidote to insomnia.

Psychologically, Howlite is reputed to teach patience and helps to eliminate rage and uncontrolled anger. It may also help to overcome a tendency to criticalness and selfishness, strengthening positive character traits and allows for reasoned communication to take place.

It is said that blue Howlite encourages clear speech in children or adults who mumble or are self-conscious about asking or answering questions!

Physically, Howlite is is believed to help with disorders of the neck, back, spine, balance and mobility. It is also thought to assist in recovery from a long illness, exhaustion or depression.
