Lepidolite is a lithium-based mineral that forms in many different types. The lepidolite we offer comes from Brazil. We selected only the lepidolite that contained the most substantial amount of lithium, which gives the mineral a dark lilac color. This powerful mineral is used to reduce stress, helps alleviate despondency and helps one to reduce/eliminate nightmares. It constantly absorbs negative energy and does need to be cleansed and cleared on a regular basis. Lepidolite is also an excellent stone for grid work.
