This is a lovely Purple Howlite Palmstone which measures approximately 7 cm by 5 cm at the widest parts and weighs approx. 73 gm.
Although wonderfully tactile, this palmstone does have a small area on one side that has not been completely smoothed and polished probably because of the low MOHS hardness score of 3-5.
Purple Howlite is simply dyed White Howlite and will therefore carry all the properties of White Howlite; not to be confused with Charoite or Sugalite! Despite not being a natural colour for this mineral, Purple Howlite is believed to be a stone of intuition; helps with acceptance that something is not what it may seem to be, also helps one not to be the “victim” in some situations. Considered to be useful during those times of stress, anxiety and tension whilst encouraging one to be more patient!
