Howlite in The Morning Light

It is my opinion that Howlite is an under valued mineral. Howlite it easily identifiable by its grey and black spidery lines in white stone. It was first discovered back in 1868 in a Gypsum mine in Nova Scotia by miners that were not sure what it was. They called on a chemist and geologist named Henry How to come take a look at it. He didn’t think it had much value but named it Silico-Boro-Calcite. It was later named Howlite by James Dwight Dana. On the MOHS scale this mineral has a rating of 3.5 so it can be easily carved and made into jewelry and other decorative items.  Most Howlite comes from Canada and the United States, but is can also be found in Turkey, Mexico, Germany and Russia.

Because this mineral is white with spidery veins, it is not uncommon for people to dye it blue and call it Turquoise. This is quite inconvenient for jewelry makers who want to use Turquoise, then find out it’s not. It is sometimes dyed green and yellow as well, but for me, the only real Howlite is White Howlite!

Howlite works well with the Crown Chakra. It is known as an “attunement stone” because it opens our minds and prepares it to receive information from our guides. Some other characteristics of Howlite are:

  • It is an excellent stone to meditate with especially as it works so well with the Crown Chakra.
  • Brings you an awareness of both current and past life issues so they can be dealt with.
  • It encourages expression.
  • Its calming nature absorbs anger and negativity and strengthens positive energy.
  • Helps balance emotions.
  • Teaches patience.
  • Reduces stress, anxiety and tension.

On a more physical level Howlite:

  • Is great for people who have trouble with insomnia.
  • Eases pain from arthritis and rheumatism.
  • Helps the body absorb calcium so it is very good for the teeth and bones.
  • Works to heal stress related conditions like ulcers.
