Howlite, a calcium borosilicate hydroxide, is a borate mineral found in evaporative deposits (some argue it is more of a silicate). Because of its porous texture, Howlite can be easily dyed to imitate other minerals, especially turquoise because of the superficial similarity of the veining patterns. Howlite is known for its strong associations with self-awareness, creativity and improving one's emotional attitude. Howlite aids in dispelling anger, resentfulness, selfishness and allows one to look inside for answers. Howlite is predominantly a calming stone, it will aid in sleeping, calming the overactive mind, eases insomnia, dreaming, dream retention and stress relief.
