This beautiful bracelet is made of Turquenite beads. Turquenite is a dyed Howlite gemstone that has been available since the 1970s. Howlite is shaped into irregular nodules that resembles a cauliflower. Turquoise was becoming more difficult to obtain and that is why Howlite was used because of its porous texture that can be easily dyed to imitate other minerals, especially Turquoise because of the superficial similarity of the veining patterns. Once the Howlite is dyed, it takes on a different energy, that is similar to Turquoise.
Turquenite is excellent to reduce anxiety, tensions, stress and anger. It carries a gentle, soothing and calming energy that brings inner peace by assisting with tumultuous emotions and assisting us to relate to others in a more positive manner. Turquenite assists us to consider the needs of others before our own. It’s calming influence helps to slow an overactive mind and because of this can be beneficial for insomnia suffers, helping to achieve a deep and restful sleep. Howlite can help to access higher wisdoms during the dream state and can be used to encourage dream recall when awaking.
Howlite is one of the “attunement stones” which link the user to higher spiritual consciousness. It opens and prepares the mind to receive higher energies, it is perfect to use before an energy attunement.
