Lepidolite is a potassium lithium aluminium silicate with a hardness of 2.5 to 3. Its crystal system is mono-clinic. It crystallizes in cleavable masses, scaly aggregates and in tabular hexagonal crystals. Lepidolite often occurs in association with other lithium-bearing minerals, such as Tourmaline or Spodumene. Color is most often pink, purplish or lavender, although Lepidolite can also be grayish, white or even colorless. Good deposits of Lepidolite have been found in Africa, Brazil, Greenland and the USA. In the United States, the best Lepidolite localities are Auburn, Maine, and San Diego County, California. One of the newest and most preferred types of Lepidolite for metaphysical use is Lilac Lepidolite from Africa.
