Symbolism of the Butterfly

Metaphysical Properties, Uses, and Meaning of Howlite
Howlite is a stone that relieves stressful energy and helps you to find your inner calm. It is a stone that soothes the mind and helps you to settle differences in your life, allowing you to let go of the “little things”. This stone absorbs negative energies and dark thoughts, providing Mental focus and better perspective to grow your ideal future. Howlite dissolves ambient negativity from outside sources as well, guarding against selfish actions and instilling compassion. It is the stone to work with if you find yourself in a persistently “bad mood” or must interact on a regular basis with people who put out “Bad Vibes”, as it helps to soothe the temper and allows you to maintain a baseline which is more centered and unruffled.

Maroon Howlite : Root Chakra

Love the color and size !
My sister loves the color red, so I thought buying this in her favorite color would be a great introduction to the world of gemstones. I also purchased some stones for her from other companies so that she could have her own great collection, and she loves them all.
