Howlite, a calcium borosilicate hydroxide, is a borate mineral found in evaporite deposits. Crystals of howlite are rare, having been found in only a couple localities worldwide. Howlite is associated with independence and taking control of one’s own life and is thought to increases receptivity.

The geological type area for labradorite is Paul's Island near the town of Nain in Labrador, Canada. It has also been reported in Norway, Finland. Labradorite occurs in mafic igneous rocks and is the feldspar variety most common in basalt and gabbro. Labradorite can display an iridescent optical effect known as labradorescence. Labradorite is rated between 6 and 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale.  Labradorite is thought to sharpen intuition; enhance emotional depth, self-reflection and search for truth.

Agate is a rock consisting primarily of cryptocrystalline silica, chiefly chalcedony, alternating with microgranular quartz. Agate is characterized by its fineness of grain and variety of color. Agate is a 6.5-7 on the Mohs hardness scale. Although agates may be found in various kinds of host rock, they are classically associated with volcanic rocks and can be common in certain metamorphic rocks. Agate is thought to increase inner stability, composure, maturity, protection, warmth, security, self-confidence.
