Wisdom From The Stone :

"Being drawn to the Howlite often means that you have endured terrible sufferings, constant stress, anxious moments and days where you felt like you were spiralling into depression.

It often comes to people who have experienced the depths of 'pain' caused by external sources; people who were/still are silently fighting their own battles without anyone to rely on for help; yet always ready to lend a helping hand if someone needs them.

It you find yourself attracted to this stone, chances are is that you've reached to a point in life where you're strong enough to allow 'healing' to take place.

It means that there is a part of you which is in need of deep healing. Wounds like these often shows up as worries (normally about the same thing), stress, irritation and being easily overwhelmed in our daily lives.

It shows up as anxiety, impatience and emotional instability which often happens through triggers which we are not aware of; causing us to be thrown off-balance when it happens. Though you may have learnt to cope with all of these mental and emotional stresses in your life on a daily basis, it may not necessarily mean that you've 'let it go' completely from your life.

Being called to this stone means that we are being called to 'Surrender' our pain, worries and sorrows to mother nature. It is a sign that the Divine sees our struggles; a sign that something BIGGER is happening behind the scenes.

It is a sign to stop 'fighting' and to start 'accepting'. To let go of 'What was', and to open ourselves to 'What is'.  

It brings a 'higher perspective' to the problems in our lives; helping us uncover the hidden meaning behind each painful memory; while teaching us to 'Accept, learn and let go' of each moment, making them powerful gifts of empowerment.

The Howlite represents the spiritual qualities of stillness, open-mindedness and tenderness. It brings a wonderful sense of calmness in moments of adversity; bringing about a gentle flow of 'Grace' into our lives; easing the stress around an issue, while reminding us of the daily blessings in our lives.

It teaches us to release control over things that are beyond our control; while bringing a sense of 'Faith' in our lives that the Universe 'HAS OUR BACK'.

Last but not least, Howlites are extremely calming which brings a heightened sense of awareness, patience and perspectives into our lives. It prepares us to receive wisdom and guidance from the Higher Self by helping us relax and gently ease into inner awareness; bringing about the 'best of us' to the people around... "

History, Myths & Legends :

Found only in Canada & North America, this stone was not included in any texts  by the ancient or medieval Old World lapidaries; though it has been included in many modern lapidaries. 

This beautiful white stone was first documented in 1868 in a Canadian Gypsum mine in Nova Scotia.  The miners complained about a stone that was getting in the way of their mining, and this complaint soon came to the attention of Henry How (1828-1879), a mineralogist connected with the Nova Scotia Museum.  How soon determined that the stone was actually a new mineral and he included it in his book, The Mineralogy of Nova Scotia, calling it “silico-boro-calcite.”  After How’s death, his student, James Dwight Dana (1813-1895), re-named the mineral Howlite to honor his late teacher.

Despite its lack of documented history, Howlite has been long known amongst Native American tribes as the “White Buffalo Stone". Famous for its white porcelain surface with greyish veins, it is believed that the Howlite was often used as an instrumental tool for spiritual seekers in the past; bringing about deep insights, wisdom and revelations to those who were in tune with its magnetic field. 

In Tibet, this stone is popularly used to absorb toxic from ones body, especially the liver, which results in the stone sacrificing itself and turning yellowish grey in colour.
