Lepidolite is a gemstone of calm and balance.
The meaning behind this crystal's name comes from the Greek word for scale because of its ability to restore balance and harmony.
A rare mineral, often found in pinks and purples, Lepidolite is the most common lithium-rich crystal. It is due to this lithium that Lepidolite is one of the best mood stabilisers in the gemstone world. Lithium is used in many medications for anxiety and depression, and although you wouldn't use this crystal in place of medication, we can still benefit from these healing properties to enhance our wellbeing.
Lepidolite has long been associated with stimulating gratitude, peace, and stability. It is calming when we're dealing with stress and anxiety, and helps to remind us that all is not lost when our world feels scary, alone and uncertain. It will sooth and guide you to the light that is on the other side of those dark days and remind you of the joy waiting there.
"Learn to be calm and you will always be happy." - Paramahansa Yogananda
Use Lepidolite when you are meditating or place around the home in spaces where anxiety runs riot. Let its calm override your storm and replace any negativity with joy.
Wearing Lepidolite as a pendant or keeping it by your bed will allow its power to permeate into you. You may sleep easier, dream happier and wake up more at peace and optimistic for the day ahead.
