Petalite is lithium sodium aluminum silicate with a hardness of 6 to 6.5. Its crystal system is monoclinic. It crystallizes relatively rarely and most often occurs as large, cleavable masses. Its color can be white, colorless, gray, pinkish or yellow. Colorless pieces can be faceted into exceptionally sparkling gems. Some can be cabbed into cats-eyes. Petalite forms in granite pegmatites and is often associated with other lithium-bearing minerals, such as Amblygonite, Kunzite, Spodumene and Lepidolite. Petalite is found in Australia, Brazil, Sweden, Namibia and Afghanistan.
