    What is Howlite?

    Howlite is a snow-white marble-like crystal with irregular gray mineral veins. Howlite is most commonly found in California but was discovered in Canada.

    Very rarely will you find Howlite in crystal formations. It is usually found in nodules resembling cauliflower heads. It is a relatively soft stone but it is found in tumbled stones, polished figurines and jewelry pieces.

    What are the healing properties of Howlite?

    In crystal healing, Howlite is known for its minimalist energy. Its clean white tone clears the slate for your mind while its trickling gray veins give you a path to follow. It is popularly used to find the path you are meant to be walking in this life. 

    Howlite provides you with the clarity of your future path, your true goals, and where you should be heading. It is a great stone to work on the Crown chakra, connecting you with your Higher Self. When you are spiritually connected, you will have all the pure answers from your subconscious mind. 

    Here are other spiritual properties of Howlite:

    • Howlite can slow the overactive mind and help you achieve a deep and restful sleep.

    • Howlite is a soothing stone for the mind, helping to reduce anger.

    • Use during spiritual regressions to help access past lives.

    Sheila's Personal Experience with Howlite

    I am not attracted to pure white stones, but I love Howlite because of its unique gray inclusions. My first experience with Howlite was many years ago when I offloaded a whole box of rough California Howlite stones from a vendor at a gem show. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but they were so cool. To think that these snow white stones came from the dirty earth!

    Over the years, my box of Howlite has been sold, gifted and some still reside in the soil of my potted plants.

    Is Howlite found in jewelry?

    Howlite makes gorgeous and versatile jewelry pieces for its unisex appeal. The handsome stone takes a nice polish and can be found in all sorts of jewelry pieces from necklaces to bracelets to cufflinks. Here at Satin Crystals, our Howlite bracelets are one of the most popular both for its look and its healing properties.

    Because Howlite is a porous stone, it is easy to dye and is often found in a lot of gaudy colors passed off as other gemstones. Please always buy from reputable gem dealers and if you want real Howlite, it should always be in its white formation! 

    You may also see Howlite mislabeled as White Turquoise. This makes the stone more valuable because Turquoise is more popular and well-known compared to Howlite.
