Turquenite is the name given to howlite (or magnesite) that has been dyed. Because of its porous texture howlite can be easily dyed to imitate other minerals especially turquoise because of the superficial similarity of the veining patterns.
Turquonite balances and evens out mood fluctuations and brings inner peace. Because the stone is actually howlite, it has the properties of howlite of decreasing an overly critical state of mind, selfishness, stress, pain, and rudeness; increases sublety and tact. It is used in crystal healing to aid bones, teeth, calcium levels and leg cramps. It also heightens creativity.
