About Stones: Howlite
Astrological Sign: Gemini
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 sometimes several hundred pounds in weight. It is frequently dyed blue to imitate turquoise.
Localities: California, Nova Scotia
