Item description

Lepidolite pendant silver twirl bail 64ct13g 1.9"47mm Reversible- polished slight crown one side, polished flat on other side. handmade one of a kind Lepidolite is in the mica family of minerals. The sparkles are mica. We mined this material ourselves in the mountains south of Julian, CA, USA. Lepidolite is an uncommon mica and has only in the past decade become available on the mineral market in large quantities. Lepidolite is an ore of lithium and forms in granitic masses that contain a substantial amount of lithium. The lithium content in lepidolite does vary greatly however and low lithium lepidolite is nearly useless as an ore of lithium. The typical violet to pink color of lepidolite is characteristic and is the only field test available to identify lepidolite from other micas. Pink muscovite or very pale lepidolite may confuse an identification. Lepidolite, like other micas, has a layered structure of lithium aluminum silicate sheets weakly bonded together by layers of potassium ions. These potassium ion layers produce the perfect cleavage. lepidolite crystals accompany such other lithium bearing minerals such as tourmaline, amblygonite and spodumene and can add greatly to the value of these specimens. A rock made of granular pink lepidolite and red to pink tourmaline is used as an ornamental stone for carving. Single large plates or "books" of lepidolite can have appealling violet color and make attractive mineral specimens. PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS: • Color is violet to pale pink or white and rarely gray or yellow. • Luster is vitreous to pearly. • Transparency crystals are transparent to translucent. • Crystal System is monoclinic; 2/m • Crystal Habits include tabular to prismatic crystals with a prominant pinacoid termination. Lepidolite's four prism faces and two pinacoid faces form pseudo-hexagonal crystal "books". The sides of the crystal often tend to tapper. Also as micaseous, lamellar or granular rock forming masses. • Cleavage is perfect in one direction producing thin sheets or flakes. • Fracture is not readily observed due to cleavage but is uneven. • Hardness is 2.5. • Specific Gravity is approximately 2.8 (average) • Streak is white. • Associated Minerals are quartz, feldspars, spodumene, ambygonite and tourmaline especially elbaite. • Other Characteristics: cleavage sheets are flexible and elastic, meaning they can be bent and will flex back to original shape. Also some specimens may show triboluminescence. • Notable Occurrences include Brazil; Ural Mountains, Russia; several African localities and California, USA. • Best Field Indicators are crystal habit, color, cleavage, elastic sheets and associations. Psychically, lepidolite is used for dreamwork, rebirthing, and is also good for dream recall. It softens the impact of this kind of gnosis so that the information can be recalled calmly. Lepidolite is also a protective stone that brings success in business or career. It can also bring a growing energy to gardening and agriculture. Emotionally, lepidolite is one of the best healers I know. It decreases stress, anxiety, depression, manic-depression, despondency, PTSD, anger, and other traumas, panic attacks, and addictions. It brings gentleness and balanced energy to all these and other emotional issues. Physically, lepidolite is said to be helpful in crystal healing for glands, immune system, skin, nails, hair, DNA, enzyme balance, addiction and alcoholism recovery, stress and anxiety related illness, PTSD, manic-depression, pregnancy, childbirth, and general healing. Note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information. Lepidolite is related primarily to the heart chakra, and also to the third eye and crown chakras. When combined with rubellite (pink tourmaline) it is an even more powerful agent for calming and healing, especially in the emotional areas. All types of mica, including Lepidolite have the basic properties of mica. Beautiful pendant you can wear to add a statement to any outfit.
