Lepidolite Meaning & Properties

Healing Properties of Lepidolite

Top 3 Benefits of Lepidolite

  1. Supports serenity & calm when life is overwhelming
  2. Builds resilience through self-acceptance
  3. Opens your crown chakra to spiritual guidance

Lepidolite is a nurturing stone that is perfect to carry when life is overwhelming and stressful. It helps with self-acceptance, serenity, and finding grace in the midst of chaos.


Lepidolite is one of the best stones to work with when you are struggling with self-acceptance. Hold or wear it while journalling to help uncover the roots of your self-rejection and any emotional patterns that are keeping you stuck.

Because it can offer you a larger perspective through the crown chakra, lepidolite can help you see your life’s events in a context that makes them less personal. If you are prone to dramatizing, lepidolite can help you see that this is actually just making your life harder for no reason. It really is OK to just relax.

Lepidolite also can help you process grief that often underlies depression, anxiety, and self-destructive habits. If you feel you are avoiding feelings that are always just under the surface, lepidolite can help you find the courage to face them.


If your life seems like a never-ending series of calamities, lepidolite can help you find that calm in the eye of the storm. It does this by helping to soothe your fears & gain perspective, which helps regulate your emotional response to what is going on around you.

Lepidolite is nurturing, like a warm bath or a hot chocolate. It takes the edges off your strong emotions, helping you to have compassion both for yourself and the people in your daily life.

Higher Guidance

Because it activates the crown chakra, lepidolite is helpful in connecting with your higher self and spirit guides.

Sometimes it can be hard to hear guidance when we feel emotionally overwhelmed. Lepidolite is especially helpful in this situation, as it can helps us find the balance and emotional regulation to be able to tune in to what our guides are saying.

Being Present

Often our stress is self-created simply by focusing on the future and past instead of the present. In many cases, the thing we are worried about is either over and can’t be changed, or it hasn’t happened yet. While some preparation is prudent, excessive worry can actually reduce our preparedness by draining our resources.

Sometimes worry becomes a habit that is hard to break. It becomes a kind of coping mechanism that makes us feel like we are doing something, when we are really just spinning our wheels. Lepidolite can help us stay present by supporting our resilience to face the reality that life isn’t always in our control.

By letting go of the fear and regret that keeps us stuck, our energy is freed up to do what we can with what we have.

Lepidolite Gemstone Information

Lepidolite is a glittery purple stone that is a form of mica. It has a pearly luster and is translucent to opaque. If you have a piece that is raw and not tumbled, pieces of it can flake off sometimes. It is also sometimes found as an inclusion in other stones like quartz and tourmaline. Lepidolite has a high lithium content and is sometimes mined as a source of lithium.

It is a soft stone, so be careful in storing and wearing it that it doesn’t get scratched by harder stones. It can be cleaned with warm soapy water, but do not use any cleaner that is harsher than that.
