Each new vein of lepidolite that is discovered in Madagascar displays new and gorgeous coloring! In this latest find, these deeply opaque, sweet, soft lavender Lepidolite palm stones are so enchanting! These are some of my favorites to come out of the Madagascan find of lepidolite so far!
Oh sweet and nurturing lepidolite. This calming and soothing stone goes by many names: “The Grandmother Stone,” for its comforting energy and love, and “The Stone of Transition,” for its guidance in difficult times. Lepidolite is a form of mica, and as such is not technically a stone. It’s rather soft in physical form, but don’t let its mineral hardness fool you. This crystal is a lithium (and sometimes aluminum) based mica that has been prized by cultures around the world throughout human history for its quiet strength, emotional healing, and its ability to help us reduce stress, pain, depression and anxiety. Humans have harnessed those powers of lithium as a conventional medication in the same way, after all!
Lepidolite is a bringer of light and hope. It’s a nurturing stone, with gentle calming properties that are wonderful for both adults and children. This is one of my favorite stones to give my children when they’re having trouble sleeping or struggling with nightmares. It’s a wonderful sleep stone for anyone, easing stress and allowing us to rest fully! Lepidolite calms the nerves and balances the mind. Many believe it aids in achieving emotional balance, and therefore crystal healers use it for a variety of ailments, namely Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and emotional and mood disorders in children, such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and ADHD.
Negativity cannot be sustained around Lepidolite. It ushers in a quiet sense of contentment by clearing away the difficult emotions we experience once they have served their purpose. It’s a truly healing stone in this way, helpful for those experience grief and loss of any kind. It brings emotional balance to a heated situation. Lepidolite is a peaceful guide when we can’t see a situation clearly, and the balance it brings to our inner worlds help us manage the outer world more effectively.
Finally, Lepidolite is a stone of SELF LOVE and SELF TRUST. Crystal Healers use it on those who struggle with sense of self hatred or loathing, low self esteem, or disorders where the anger is turned inward onto the self. Lepidolite helps us focus on what’s important, helping us remove the obstacles and blockages in life (even if they originate with ourselves!) to find peace and tap into spirituality that was not accessed before. It’s a wonderful “stone” to help us recover from illness and get back on track emotionally, mentally and physically.
An ancient favorite, Lepidolite is a must have in any crystal healer’s collection; it’s soft and gentle, kind and caring, a bringer of hope, love, light and compassion.
Spheres are powerful and potent Earth medicine to have around, especially for those of you not able to work with your crystals as much as you want to or need to. They’re very good for family living spaces or as home or office decor. The reason for this is their shape. Circles and spheres hold heavy symbolism in many cultures and civilizations around the world and throughout time. They represent infinite energy, and indeed, this is what they radiate. When a gemstone is carved into a sphere, it sends its properties out equally in all directions, through every space, into every nook and cranny with minimal effort from you. Of course, our crystals like it when we work with them and they want to be of service; but spheres will sit quietly, radiating their awesomeness into your space all on their own. Just give them a stand, keep them dust-free, smudge them to clear them every once in a while, and enjoy their beauty!
This listing is for the exact lepidolite sphere pictured. It measures 4 inches in diameter.
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered thousands of years in the earth and I cannot guarantee them completely. They are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
