Why White Howlite?
Oh hi, howlite are you doing there?
Today we want to shine a spotlight on our BEST-SELLING stone during December 2020 – the grounding, protective and all around stunning white howlite.
So what is it, what does it do, why do you need it and where is the best place to buy crystals online? (The last part of that sentence is definitely rhetorical – Crystal & Stone is the best place to buy crystals in Australia – DUH).
What Does White Howlite Look Like?
White howlite is predominantly white in colour with a striking marbled look throughout. The ‘marbled’ look is made up of fine black or grey veins that stretch across the stone, with each howlite stone featuring a unique pattern.
White Howlite Properties
Most notably, howlite is used to relieve tension and stress, but it is also used for soothing emotions, grounding, protection & truth.
White howlite is also a brilliant stone to use if you’re the kind of person that recites the ABC’s instead of catching Zzz’s at night, as it can help to soothe the mind and get you to sleep.
Is Howlite a Real Gemstone?
Howlite is often referred to as an imitation gemstone because it can be dyed to imitate the look of other gemstone types.
However, howlite is definitely a gemstone all of its own – it is a borate mineral that was first discovered in 1868 in Nova Scotia.
Beware of dishonest sellers (not us though, we’re your crystal BFFs). While this stone is beautiful in its own right, its porous nature does mean that it can be manipulated by some dishonest sellers to appear like another coloured gemstone.
Some sellers may dye howlite and try to sell it off as other gemstones like turquoise, coral and lapis lazuli, so ensure you only buy crystals and gemstones from trusted stores and websites.
How You Can Benefit from Howlite Stone
With the end of the year often associated with stress for many families and individuals, it’s no wonder that white howlite was our top seller in December.
You can use white howlite in a number of ways:
- As part of Crown Chakra healing;
- Under your pillow to help you get a restful night of sleep;
- In your bag or purse to help you deal with Karen at work;
- Worn as a pendant to heal you during day-to-day life; or
- As part of your meditation practise.
