Howlite is in use across the globe for more than a century for many purposes. It is mainly used for relieving the different types of stress and anxieties. It is a great antidote to insomnia because of an overexcited mind. The stone can also help those with having the difficulty in concentrating. The stone’s soothing energy can even pacify outbursts of anger and irritation. Its main use is to aid in interacting with aggressive and argumentative people on a daily basis.
Howlite was discovered near Windsor, Nova Scotia in 1868 by Henry How (1828–1879), a Canadian chemist, geologist, and mineralogist. How was alerted to the unknown mineral by miners in a gypsum quarry, who found it to be a nuisance. He called the new mineral silico-boro-calcite; it was given the name howlite by James Dwight Dana shortly thereafter.
