Properties: Howlite is white with fine grey veining from other minerals, and it is often dyed other colours, especially turquoise. Howlite helps to bring new ideas into focus, and is associated with purity. It is also purported to be an aid in correcting disrupted sleep patterns, and assisting past-life journeys. It is sometimes employed as a scrying crystal, by using the veins to see ‘pictures’.
