Fantastic Howlite Beaded Bracelet with Elastic has 8mm beads. Howlite is a wonder stone for calming upset states of mind and emotion. Howlite decreases an overly critical state of mind, selfishness, stress, and anxiety, bringing calm and relaxation. Howlite can calm difficult communications and ease confrontations; particularly by decreasing rudeness and facetiousness. The wake of such calming can help one be truly comfortable as oneself without the need to pretend to be anything but what you are. It is said to aid pain, insomnia, bones, osteoporosis, teeth, calcium levels, leg cramps, anxiety disorders and stress-related illnesses.
