When this shimmering mica-based purple mineral, called Lepidolite, was first discovered in the early 1700s, little did people know that it has immense therapeutic value. Discovered at the time when people of that era were mining for tin, this crystal turned out to be an effective antidepressant.
Its value in the present-day world has increased manifold, what with the stressful existence being faced by people in every sphere of life. The name Lepidolite was derived from a Greek word ‘lepidos’, which means scale. This is because the mineral is flaky, having mica-like scales.
Characteristics of Lepidolite
The flaky nature of Lepidolite is what makes it a soft crystal that is prone to scratches. Not only this, bits of it may fall off too while handling. However, it can be easily washed in warm and soapy water and safely dried in the sun. But, it should not be left outdoors in the rain or under running water.
Lepidolite possesses unique therapeutic features due to its composition. It contains trace elements of lithium, along with rare alkali metals – rubidium and cesium. These highly reactive alkali metals, give out vibrations that affect the body in a positive way.
As far as the physical features of Lepidolite go, it is not all purple and its color may range from pale rose pink to pale silvery gray of varying shades to a deep-colored form. Whatever be the color, it remains ever-sparkling and even its therapeutic value is not dimmed. Lepidolite without sparkle may not be a genuine crystal.
Therapeutic value of Lepidolite
Since, lithium carbonate is used for treating psychiatric disorders, like manic depressions or bipolar disorders and chronic depressions, it is not surprising that Lepidolite crystal acts as an effective antidepressant by stabilizing mood swings.
Using this crystal regularly wards of the blues and anxiety of any kind. This is the reason why it is recommended for maintaining mental health and improving one’s emotional outlook in life. Those prone to temper and mood swings will find this crystal soothing and calming.
Lepidolite also guides an individual at times when he or she may feel confused and disconnected, often caused by loneliness. Since, this crystal connects with the crown chakra of the individual, its psychic vibrations not only help in freeing one from emotional suffering, but also in attuning with the divine powers.
Engaging patience, independence, and optimism, Lepidolite is known as the stone of transformation that helps one get through new transitions with trust that everything will ultimately turn out for the best.
By southing the nervous system, Lepidolite relieves exhaustion and tension related disorders. It is also known to aid in epilepsy, allergies, Alzheimer, strengthening the immune system, and joint problems.
Lepidolite can be used in a variety of ways. Since it emanates subtle energy, it needs to be worn consistently for a longer duration, for its effects to become apparent. The best way to use this crystal is to wear it as a piece of jewelry.
Extended use may pale or lighten its color, which shows that your body is absorbing the chemicals required from the mineral directly. So, don’t get alarmed if your shimmering purple crystal pales and becomes almost transparent. This is due to the absorption of chemicals.
