Lepidolite is made up of Mica and Lithium. Lepidolite is literally crystallized Lithium, the same mineral used in antidepressant medication, but in its pure form as it comes out of the earth.
This is a lavender and purple crystal that ranges from translucent to opaque. It often forms in thin sheets or flaky layers. Lepidolite has a pearly or glassy luster that at times may appear greasy, sparkly, or resinous.
Known as "the stone of transition", Lepidolite helps to shift and restructure old energy patterns, bringing light and hope to a situation. Carry Lepidolite with you when you need to balance your emotions with your intellect.
Lepidolite works with all of the chakras, especially the Heart, Third-Eye, and Crown Chakras. Lepidolite crystals can help you open up to receiving higher vibrations from the higher realms into the subconscious, transferring these vibrations into the conscious through the Third-Eye Chakra, and integrating them into the center of truth via the Heart Chakra.
Use Lepidolite for metaphysical work with the Heart and Crown Chakras, and to reduce stress associated with change.
Lepidolite brings balance and inner peace, helping one to see reasons behind any negative experiences, so they can improve on them. Lepidolite promotes spiritual transcendence and cosmic awareness, particularly assisting in the course of meditation and/or prayer.
Lepidolite is known to alleviate depression, bringing serenity from the knowledge that the Universe will always provide. The soothing energy of Lepidolite can be used to help those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Lepidolite can also be an ally to a parent of a child with ADHD, or hyperactivity. Sleep disorders, such as insomnia, can be greatly reduced by utilizing Lepidolite.
Lepidolite is good for helping to absorb electromagnetic pollution and is said to work best for this when placed next to the computer.
Ameliorating ailments involving the nervous system, Lepidolite can help those with Alzheimer's and epilepsy.

|I just purchased a large slab of Lepidolite. The first time that I held it I began to cry. I don't know why. I put it away and later held it again, and once again I began to cry. This is a very powerful crystal for me. I hope I can work through whatever it is that I am needing right now. Wish I knew, but apparently the Lepidolite knows.
