Howlite is used to make jewellery and is also craved into small decorative items in various shapes such as animals.  Pieces of howlite are also used in homes and work spaces to promote a calm, positive and productive space.

Cleansing and charging howlite

All crystals should be cleansed when you first get them and then regularly after that.  They should also be charged to keep them at their full power.

Two of the most common ways to cleanse crystals is with water and with sunlight.

Can howlite get wet?

With a hardness of only 3.5 on the Mohs scale howlite should not be put into water.  Anything with a hardness of 5 or below will be damaged by water.

Can howlite go in sunlight?

Howlite will not fade in the sun therefore it is safe to both cleanse and charge this stone using sunlight.
