Description

Lepidolite is a lilac-grey or rose-colored member of the Mica group that is a secondary source of Lithium. It is one of the major sources of the rare alkali metals Rubidium and Caesium. Lepidolite occurs in Granite pegmatites, in some high temperature Quartz veins.

Lepidolite is a lithium mica, found in a number of places, including Czech Republic, Greenland, Madagascar, Africa, Dominican Republic, Brazil and the USA. The meaning of this stones name comes from a Greek word ‘lepidos’ meaning scale. Lepidolite was discovered in the eigtheenth century and was originally known as lilalite (from the Hindu word ‘lila’ meaning play, game). Lepidolite is not technically a gemstone, but a very beautiful purplish type of mica.
