Lepidolite is a lilac variety of Mica. It is a softer stone, and the color comes from the lithium content in the mineral, Lepidolite is actually the most abundant lithium-bearing mineral on the market. Mica has nearly perfect basal cleavage and sits at just a 2 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, making it one of the softest minerals on the planet.
This Lepidolite specimen has a great natural contrast with the pale lilac Mica sheets reflecting light with their mirror-like sheen, along with the creamy opaque white matrix. This piece has a strong shape and would make an ideal display piece with it's perfectly fitted wooden base.
Lepidolite is believed to relieve stress and anxiety, bring emotional healing, and create a divine connection. Lepidolite was discovered in the eighteenth century, and was originally named Lilalite. It is thought to be a fantastic transition stone, bringing forth hope, honesty and joy.
