Lepidolite is a beautiful lavender lilac colored gemstone. It often has a sparkly or speckled appearance. It is sometimes found with bits of pink tourmaline running through it. Until recently, the lepidolite was often destroyed in the search for the more valuable pink tourmaline crystals that are found in conjunction with it, but people that work with the rock have learned to appreciate the beauty of lepidolite and are now working more and more with the stone. Lepidolite can be formed into beautiful shapes and cut to make unusual cabochons.
Some believe lepidolite can help one become more spiritual and help you develop a sense of inner peace
