The lilac mica
Lepidolite is a mica mineral and is known for its lilac-gray to pink color. It is formed in volcanic rock, usually granite, and contains a large amount of lithium. Lepidolite is therefore sometimes called lithium glimmer. In crystal form, this mineral shimmers beautifully.
Name of Lepidolite
The name lepidolite comes from the Greek and literally means: 'scale stone'. The name is derived from the words: 'lepidon' and 'lithos' which mean 'scale' and 'stone' respectively. Before lepidolite got its name, it was called lilalith after the typical lilac color of this mineral.
Effect of Lepidolite
Lepidolite is naturally high in lithium. This is used in medical science as a medicine for anxiety and as a mood stabilizer. Lepidolite has this effect naturally and promotes a feeling of peace and tranquility in times of stress and chaos and dissolves energy blockages.
