PHYSICAL: Lepidolite is a lithium-bearing mica variety, and gets its purple color from manganese inclusions. It commonly forms in changing environments along with pegmatite minerals such as beryl, tourmaline, and quartz. Thought flaky and fragile in its natural state, tumbling this particular stone has greatly enhanced its durability.

 

METAPHYSICAL/CULTURAL: Lepidolite is associated with emotional healing and balance, and peace and tranquility. It is thought to soothe the emotional body. Lepidolite is associated with the heart chakra (4th) and the element of water.
