Howlite is a calcium borosilicate hydroxide mineral, forming in massive or nodules, with crystals of it being very rare. It is colourless or white with grey veins, resembling marble. Because of its porous texture, howlite is often artificially coloured in the making of jewellery or decorative objects. If it is labelled as dyed howlite, then this is acceptable, however it has sadly become common practice that some turquoise coloured howlite is being marketed as ‘Turquoise’.
Howlite has a soothing, calming energy and is good to help reduce anxiety, tension or stress. Howlite will calm and sooth emotions as well as calming an overactive mind which can help with restful sleep. It is also a good crystal to carry when having to deal with angry people.
Howlite is an ideal crystal for meditation due to its calming energy. It is also said to link the user to higher spiritual consciousness.
Howlite is known to help the teeth and bones as well as with soft tissue problems.
