Lepidolite Quick Notes
Lepidolite, originally known as lilalite, is a Phyllosilicate mineral from the mica group and is known for its beautiful shades of purple lilac, pink and even a purplish-grey. However, some specimens can be colorless. It’s a rarer mineral, commonly found in pegmatite dikes, which are formed when water is separated from magma in the late states of crystallization. As a soft and brittle stone, it can only be cut and shaped when found in larger pieces.
Metaphysically, lepidolite is said to help stabilize moods, as it contains high amounts of lithium, which is believed to help with anxiety. The softer lavender hue creates an overwhelming sense of tranquility and sooths your emotional imbalances. Healers also believe it helps with any stagnant negative energies that are no long around but needs change.
Lepidolite is found in the Czech Republic, Russia, Sweden, USA, Canada and Zimbabwe.
