Howlite Healing Properties

Real Howlite from Canada! Most of the tumbled "Howlite" sold on the market is actually Magnesite from Zimbabwe, but this here is the real deal. Place them near your bed for a good night sleep. Or add them to a healing space to bring calm energy and tactful communication. Howlite is a wonderful stone for meditation and prayer, especially if we are feeling frustrated because of other people's bad behavior and we need to re-center ourselves in the heart of patience and compassion.

Ethically Sourced Howlite

Know where your crystals come from

This Howlite comes from Nova Scotia, Canada. The exact mine is unknown, but Canada is one of the few countries that has adopted environmentally-friendly and sustainable mining practices. Canada has one of the safest mining standards in the world.

This gem dealer is a family business in the USA. It is run by two brothers who visit mines around the world. In some locations, they polish the rough stones in the same country as the mine. In other cases, they export the rough stones and have them polished in China. They also have dozens of employees who help them in their USA warehouse and at gem shows around the country.

I first encountered this supplier at the 2015 Franklin, North Carolina Gem and Mineral Show. They carry a variety of polished stones, both common and rare. The family is originally from Pakistan and helped introduce K2 Azurite to the international market. When I first saw K2 I knew it was real, but didn’t know what it was and so approached one of the owners. He and I had an instant rapport.

Years later, we greet with a hug and he expects me to have questions about all his new stock. He tells me, with justifiable pride, about all the improvements he’s made to his business since we last spoke. In 2019, this source began to label all their stones with country-of-origin. When I asked him why, he told me that he listens to his customers and that I kept asking him where all the stones come from.

Howlite Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published June 2014  •  Updated June 2022  •  Read Time: 6 minutes
Howlite is a white mineral found only in North America.  It is popular in the healing crystal industry and a sweet addition to any collection.  But, buyer beware, it looks virtually identical to the less-popular Magnesite.  Rather than celebrate their differences, Magnesite is often purposefully mislabeled as Howlite!  To further confuse the matter, some factories will dye these two white stones blue so that they can be sold as cheap “Turquoise.”  Natural white Howlite is well worth the effort of seeking out and getting to know.  For […]

    Placed a large order for tumbled stones that I planned to include with handmade Christmas gifts. Julie sent me the sweetest message after I had placed my order. I received them very quickly and upon opening the parcel I could tell they were all chosen and packaged with care. Each stone was lovely and felt great to hold.
