Lepidolite is named after the Greek "leipidos”, meaning “scale” because of its scaly appearance caused by the flakes of lithium. * please be aware you should not over handle this material as it will flake off in your hard due to the brittle nature of its composition *
With the Lithium, the colour can range from pink to purple with an appealing pearly lustre. Usually opaque, you can get translucent and even transparent examples, but these are rare.
Sources of Lepidolite include Brazil, Canada (Manitoba, Bernic lake, Tanco mine, and others), Madagascar, Russia (the Ural Mountains), the U.S. (California), and a few more.
Lepidolite is often found in Quartz, this gives it the distinct colouring and also improves the hardness of the material. The pure forms are softer and more susceptible to damage and cleavage.
Lepidolite is know as the 'grandmother' stone for its calming and nourishing energy. Lepidolite is often recommended as a stone for those who are under stress, who suffer from chronical anxiety, or who are just with a typically nervous nature, this is because of its naturally occurring lithium.
It strongly resonates with the heart, the third eye, and the crown chakras, making it an outstanding gem to accompany you on your journey of self-improvement and spiritual growth.
It can help stabilise our mood, reducing mood swings and can be very beneficial during menopause to reduce the hormonal imbalance.
Most of the physical benefits of lepidolite are connected with its effect on the nervous system. So if you suffer with a neurological condition, such as Neuralgia or Sciatica, you should carry this with you to sooth and relieve the pain.
