Howlite is almost always found in masses or boitroydal nodules. Only rarely is it found as crystals, and they are small. The stone was discovered in 1868 by J.D. Dana and named for Canadian chemist H. How who discovered it. Howlite is naturally white or colorless, but is often dyed in a rainbow of colors, especially for beads.
Howlite is one of the “attunement stones” which link the user to higher spiritual consciousness. Howlite opens and prepares the mind to receive the energies and wisdom of attunements.
Howlite is a lovely stone to use when needing to reduce anxiety, tensions and stress. Howlite can be used to facilitate awareness, encourage emotional expression and assist in the elimination of pain, stress and/or rage.
Howlite will calm and soothe the emotions, slow the overactive mind and help to achieve a deep and restful sleep. Howlite can help to access/retrieve wisdom during the dream state and bring it back into consciousness upon waking.
Howlite brings mental awareness, both to current and past-life issues, and facilitates a calm communication of these issues. Keep a piece of Howlite in your pocket to absorb anger and negative energy. Meditating with Howlite can help one to connect with the higher realms, allowing for greater communication of higher frequencies into the higher chakras, to be assimilated by the unconscious mind, which helps one to slowly remove the veils blocking truth. Howlite strengthens positive character traits, removing selfishness, rude behaviour, and greed.
