Howlite is a most interesting stone. It is chalky white with gray inclusions. It’s job is to calm. It is said to reduce anxiety, tension, and stress. It also assists in the elimination of physical pain associated with stress. The black tourmaline handles the negative energies that bombard us daily. The shiny hematite is the all purpose grounding stone that energizes the body. My daughter, Jackie, helped to design this bracelet. She said she wanted a bracelet that helps people with depression. And, she chose these stones herself. If you know Jackie, you will be blown away at what this girl can do given her challenges.
