Lepidolite is a potassium lithium aluminum silicate which crystallizes in cleavable masses, scaly aggregates and tabular hexagonal crystals. Lepidolite is often found with other lithium-bearing minerals such as tourmaline.
Said to have a strong relaxing and calming effect. It brings hope and is a stone of transformation in that it helps one get through transitions with trust that everything will ultimately turn out for the best. It engenders and enhances self-love, patience, and optimism. Emotionally, lepidolite is an excellent healer. It greatly decreases stress, anxiety, depression, manic-depression, despondency, PTSD, anger, and other traumas, panic attacks, and addictions. Lepidolite can be used for dreamwork, rebirthing, and is also good for dream recall. When combined with rubellite (pink tourmaline) it is an extraordinarily powerful agent for calming and healing, especially in the emotional areas.
