Calming ~ Emotional Expression ~ Peace

History of Howlite

Howlite, a mineral discovered by Henry How in Nova Scotia in 1868, was initially used for decoration and later as a turquoise substitute. It is valued for its calming properties in spiritual practices and serves as an indicator of borax-rich deposits in geology. Today, it is popular in jewelry and holistic practices.
