Lepidolite belongs to the Mica mineral family. This crystal is most often formed in igneous rocks which require late stage magma crystallization. It also needs a specific geochemical environment that contains high concentrations of lithium. This is something that doesn’t occur often which makes it a more rare crystal. In its structure it also has some aluminum bonded together with the lithium by potassium particles.
Lepidolite is a lithium aluminosilicate mineral. It has a 2.5-3 score on the Mohs scale of hardness which makes it really sensitive to scratches by other harder materials. The fracture point when the crystal is broken is uneven in most cases.
Lepidolite’s name comes from the Greek words “lepidos” and “lithos” which roughly means scale stone. The symbolism behind these terms is the crystal’s ability to restore emotional balance and promote harmony between the inner and outer world.
