Howlite History Mythology Information: Howlite was first discovered in Canada in 1868 by Henry How. At the time he named the new stone ‘slico-boro-calcite’ after what the stone was composed of, however it was later changed to Howlite after him. Howlite is a very porous stone that can take on colour very well and so has been falsely sold as more expensive stones once it has been coloured. Some of the more precious stones that are dyed Howlite include Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli and Coral.
Coloured Howlite is a White coloured stone that is either pure white or can have grey veins running through it. More recently I am seeing Pink Howlite, Blue Howlite and a whole range of different colours – these have been dyed.
Howlite Metaphysical Healing Properties Information: Howlite is a very calming stone that is fantastic to use when you are feeling any tension, anxiety, or stress over something.
