Blue howlite is a borate-rich gemstone that is associated with the Gemini star sign. The stone was first identified in Nova Scotia, Canada in 1868 by mineralogist, Henry How, after whom it is named. It was later discovered and is now mined in Germany, Turkey, Pakistan, Russia, Mexico, and more commonly in California, USA.
In its natural form, the mineral has a white to cream color, with gray, brown, and black veins. However, you can get it dyed in blue and other colors. The gemstone is commonly used for ornaments and different types of jewelry. Besides its decorative and ornamental value, the stone also harbors significantly important metaphysical properties, the benefits of which we will discuss below.
Blue Howlite Has Qualities to Calm the Mind
Blue howlite is the stone for troubled minds battling with strong emotions. Used for meditation, it calms the mind, especially when you have to deal with angry and difficult people. It will also soothe overactive minds and will help you sleep deeper and more restfully. Because of this, howlite jewelry has been recommended for insomnia sufferers.
The gemstone improves your communication skills, especially with difficult subjects. You will get better at expressing yourself and find it easier to unlock your creative brain. This means it will become easier to stay positive no matter how frustrating and challenging your circumstances are. Howlite does not only help calm the human brain. Placing a couple of blue howlite beads in your pet’s sleeping area will also calm it.
If you are in school, the stone is a good study aid as it strengthens memory and stimulates the thirst for knowledge. And due to its ability to calm the mind and boost your creativity and confidence, the stone has associations with wealth and abundance.
Blue howlite reshapes your perception of problems so you can look at them less as obstacles and more as challenges to overcome on your journey to wealth and fulfillment. It teaches patience, understanding, and maturity - even in your love relationships.
Blue Howlite Has Physical Healing Properties
Rocking your howlite necklace will do more for you than simply improving your look and calming the mind. Due to its significant calcium content, blue howlite aids healing for birth-related conditions.
Other conditions that blue howlite can help heal include arthritis, rheumatism, broken bones, and dislocated joints. The gemstone also detoxifies the body, stimulates your metabolism, and balances your stomach acid levels, helping with relief from heartburn.
Blue howlite is a beautiful stone that works well for jewelry making. But, because the stone is not as hardy, your howlite jewelry scratches easily. So, you will need to handle your howlite ring or bracelet with a bit more care.
