Lepidolite – (Heart & Third Eye Chakra) – (Zodiac of Libra)
Lepidolite is one of the lesser known gemstones, but it is oh so useful and practical! It is a lovely pink, purple and white sparkly gem. I keep one nearby at all times, because it is so supportive in every day life situations. Whenever life is particularly stressful, I carry a big piece around in my pocket and use it often as a worry stone.
Science – Lepidolite is a potassium lithium aluminum fluoro-silicate. It is one of the primary sources of the metal lithium. One cannot absorb the lithium by touching the stone, but it likely exudes the energy and vibration of the lithium and contributes to its ability to calm someone holding the stone.
Metaphysical Attributes – This gemstone is one of the most calming and soothing stones available. This stone is the ultimate stress reliever and lifts depression. It is an excellent stone if you have sleep disorders or insomnia as it helps to calm the heart and mind and allows you to relax. It can ease both a person or a whole environment, like a classroom or home. Gridding a space with Lepidolite is helpful during times of anxiety. This gemstone also helps to release addictions, addictive behavior, and obsessive compulsions.
Lepidolite clears negativity and a variety of blockages in one’s life. It activates and clears all chakras from the heart up. It dissolves any blocks in the auric and energetic system. It helps to dissolve emotional and past life blocks that could be preventing you from progressing to your Highest Good. This gemstone also filters electronic pollution, so is great to keep on your desk or around a group of electronics.
As a massive stress reducer, Lepidolite is also very supportive during major change and transitions. It helps us release what is no longer serving us. If you have fear of change, this stone calms the fear and worry. It helps us ride the change and be open to the outcome.
This stone enhances honesty, diplomacy, concentration and decision-making and is excellent for business negotiations. For many reasons, this is a great stone to have at work. It helps to reduce stress, helps us have productive conversations, and filters out the vibration of constant phone and computer work.

Practice Mantras – Sit in seated meditation, holding the Lepidolite in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine yourself surrounded by a soft, warm energy. It is like a light blanket providing comfort. Repeat these words. “I allow myself to Calm, Settle and Relax. I am Safe and at Peace.”
Alternately, hold a Lepdiolite mala and chant this mantra 108 times.
