Lepidolite is a form of mica that comes in purple, pink, yellow, grey, and white. It's original name was lilalite. Lepidolite has been called a "stone of transition" because it helps a person who is going through life changes. It will assist you in evaluating and reorganizing old patterns and developing new pathways. Lepidolite can also be used when the soul is ready to transition from the earthly body to the light. Energy medicine practitioners can employ lepidolite as a tool to locate energy blockages in the body. Lepidolite assists spiritual communications with guides and angels.

How I Attracted This Stone

The stone pictured in this article was purchased at a Gem Show in Macomb, Illinois. I was looking over some small pendants carved in the shapes of animals as possible gifts for my 8 year old twin nieces when my eyes wandered to the right and became glued onto this chunk of lepidolite. I knew immediately that the glittering lavender form of mica was meant for me. Oh, and I also snatched up the pendants for the girls. A dyed howlite cat and a sodalite dragon.

My Healing Stone Story 

In anticipation of attending an annual gem show I decided beforehand on a set spending budget. Overly budget conscious, too often I have left gem shows empty-handed or regretting leaving a stone behind. I was determined not to let that happen this time. As it turned out, I spent less than half of the amount I had allotted myself. You may wonder why I didn't go ahead and get more beauties. Well, it wasn't really up to me. An orange calcite stone that my husband pointed out to me ended up being left behind. I picked it up several times, I really wanted to WANT it because my husband wanted me to want it, but I kept getting the message that it was meant for someone else. I opened myself up to every stone I picked up, listening to which specimens wanted to come with me. Normally I'm attracted to earthy or grounding stones and was quite surprised how willing two stones with airy and astral vibrations were to talk to me. There was no arm-twisting either, they practically jumped into my hands.

I knew immediately they were mine. These were a celestite cluster and the lepidolite.

I discovered after I returned home with my new treasures that the lepidolite stone was originally named "lilalite" -- lila is my middle name. How cool is that! I'm calling it "lila's light."

The other stones I purchased at the gem show were the celestite and the lepidorite, also a green fluorite standing point, two apatites (blue and asparagus green varieties), two small chunks of polished ocean jasper, rose stone cluster, and some Shiva Linghams from India.

Lessons Learned

  • Crystals are never really owned by us, we serve as temporary caregivers.
  • Stay open to communications from stones. They will magically jump into your hands or pockets when they want you to have them.
  • I've learned to be open for all avenues that crystals and rocks can enter my life, picked up from a riverbank, received as a gift from a friend, a store purchase, or wherever.
