Howlite is a stone that looks like porcelain, of a very porous nature. It is frequently dyed to resemble other stones, such as turquoise or lapis lazuli. The Amerindians named it "white bison stone" because it is as rare as white bison in Southern America. It is a very relaxing stone, often used to get rid of any stress. It helps to counteract insomnia and strengthens character. At the physical level, it is said that howlite contributes to the fortification of bones, hair, nails and teeth. Finally, it would help to relieve digestion disorders and would have a diuretic action.
