UNIQUE Specimens! Gorgeous lavender ledidolite mica with green tourmaline mixed through out the specimens. These look nicer in person than in the photographs - the reflective mica makes it difficult to photograph the lavender color of the mica.

You will receive one specimen that is 3 inch to 3 1/2 inch and weighing 7 to 10 ounces.

Special Note: These are solid specimens but some tiny amount of mica might flake off in shipment is normal.

Bulk Purchase Specimen
You are buying one rock. You will receive one rock like the ones in the photographs, not the exact rocks shown. Photographing and listing every crystal separately adds a lot in labor costs. We pass that savings on to you with lower prices and higher quality than the competition.

Lepidolite is an uncommon mica and is an ore of lithium and forms in granitic masses that contain a substantial amount of lithium. The typical violet color of lepidolite is characteristic and like other micas, has a layered structure of lithium aluminum silicate sheets weakly bonded together by layers of potassium ions.

Tourmaline belongs to a complex family of aluminum borosilicates mixed with iron, magnesium, or other various metals that, depending on the proportions of its components, may form as red, pink, yellow, brown, black, green, blue or violet. Its prismatic, vertically striated crystals may be long and slender, or thick and columnar, and are uniquely triangular in cross-section.

HEALING PROPERTIES

Lepidolite is variety of mica. It is stone of calm, trust, and acceptance. It has a strong relaxing, balancing and calming effect. It brings hope in dark times by lending a sense of balance and calm. Lepidolite is a stone of transformation in that it helps one get through transitions with trust that everything will ultimately turn out for the best. It engenders and enhances self-love, patience, and optimism.

Psychically, lepidolite is used for dreamwork, rebirthing, and is also good for dream recall. It softens the impact of this kind of gnosis so that the information can be recalled calmly. Lepidolite is also a protective stone that brings success in business or career. It can also bring a growing energy to gardening and agriculture. Emotionally, lepidolite is one of the best healers I know. It decreases stress, anxiety, depression, manic-depression, despondency, PTSD, anger, and other traumas, panic attacks, and addictions. It brings gentleness and balanced energy to all these and other emotional issues.

Lepidolite is related primarily to the heart chakra, and also to the third eye and crown chakras.

Green Tourmaline is perhaps Nature's best healing crystal of the physical heart, channeling its electrical energies into the center of one's being and creating a flow of wholesome energy to all parts of the body and self. Its spiritual vibrations harmonize with the energies of the Earth as it opens the Heart Chakra and stimulates a strong resonance with Divine Love.

Green Tourmaline attracts luck, success, abundance and prosperity. It inspires creativity, and may be used to project, create and manifest one's goals. It might also increase one's opportunities to earn a second income by turning an interest or hobby into a business.
