About Howlite

Astrological Sign: Gemini
Chakra: Sacral
Lore: Howlite dispels criticism, and lessens rudeness and boisterousness. It helps us combine the power of reasoning with discernment and patience.
Geology: Howlite is hydrated calcium silico-borate found in arid regions and borate deposits. It forms dense white compact masses that resemble unglazed porcelain. In California it occurs in nodules up to several hundred pounds in weight. Sometimes called "White Buffalo Turquoise," howlite may also be dyed to imitate blue turquoise.
Localities: California, Nova Scotia
