Originally called “lilalite” because of its lavender color, it was later named “lepidolite” from the Greek “lepidos”–which means “scale”–because of its scaly appearance caused by flakes of lithium. … Lepidolite is an important source of lithium, which is the lightest metal in the world.
Lepidolite is calming and nurturing, like a warm hug from a kind friend when you need some support. It aligns with the 4th chakra, helping open your heart to fully accept yourself–warts, struggles, mistakes and all. It can also help you find more compassion and patience for others and the role their relationship plays in your life
