Lepidolite Gemstone

Also spelt  Lapidolite,  this  gem  is  found  in a range of hues similar to Amethyst and Rose  Quartz. This translucent mineral is considered by many jewellers to be too soft to set in rings and  is  therefore  more  often  seen  in  beaded  necklaces, bracelets and ornaments.

Its name is said to be derived from the Greek word “lepidos”, meaning “scale”, due to its scaly  appearance.

Lepidolite  is  never  faceted  and  rarely  even cabochon cut. When set in jewellery it is shaped  by tumbling and this rough appearance is a stark contrast to its inherent softness.

The gem is surrounded in Crystal Healing myths  and is said to bring light and hope to a situation  and to promote hope, patience, and self-love.

Lepidolite can help heal depression, lessen anger  and release trauma.  Smokers and heavy drinkers  may also find it helpful as it is supposedly useful  for ending addictions. 

The gem has been discovered in Argentina, the  Czech Republic, Madagascar, Russia, USA and  Zimbabwe.
