About this Mala:

Howlite is a calcium borosilicate hydroxide. It was first discovered at Tick Canyon in southern California in 1868. Howlite is typically white or grayish white with fine grey or black or brown veins, often in a web-like pattern, and is often dyed different colors to enhance its beauty. It is opaque with a sub-vitreous luster sometimes described as porcelaneous. It is usually found in borax deposits in the desert clays of California in the United States.
Howlite: Balances calcium levels and strengthens the bones and teeth. It is also thought to be a calming stone that can relieve insomnia, therefore, some insomniacs place a piece of Howlite beneath their pillow to encourage restful sleep.
