About: Howlite is a borate mineral normally found in evaporate deposits. Normally it forms as irregular nodular formations found in cauliflower like deposits. Crystals of howlite are rarely found in only a couple of deposits world-wide. It has a porous structure, which means it can be dyed (and often is) any color to resemble other stones. Often it is dyed to resemble turquoise as they both have irregular web like dark veins.
Metaphysical: Howlite is a powerful stone to bring awareness to your mind. It is known to calm the emotions, the psyche, and one’s energies. It may prepare one to receive wisdom or direction from higher realms by clearing and calming the energetic pathways. It has been used to release attachments from old pains or past life issues and then assist in processing the emotions associated with that endeavor while bringing peace to those areas.
Why you should wear this stone: We include howlite in our crown chakra laces, malas, and bracelets for its energetically calming properties and its ability to clear energetic pathways that allow access to a higher consciousness.
The crown chakra is all about a quiet calm mind and being connected to higher energetic and spiritual realms. Howlite works to clear a pathway for the other stones included in the crown chakra line to fully activate your highest self. Think of it as a bull dozer that clears the mind of obstacles so that you can see and achieve access to the spirit realm. This stone is an important tool in your activation arsenal.
