Howlite Meaning & Properties

Healing Properties of Howlite

Howlite is most well known for being calming and soothing, and helping with insomnia. It helps attune the mind to the realm of Divine awareness where all is well.

Like most white crystals, howlite supports the crown chakra. This is where we connect to the Divine and understand our place in the Universe. It’s also the seat of our awareness, helping us stay sharp and focused and making conscious choices.

Howlite can help with memory and is recommended for students who are studying for exams. It’s also a great stone to hold during meditation.

Howlite Mineral & Gemstone Information

Howlite is naturally white or light gray with a dark matrix (veining). Because it is porous, it is often dyed to look like other stones, most commonly Turquoise. It is sometimes called “white turquoise”, which is a misnomer as it is not turquoise at all. Real white turquoise is very rare.
