Lepidolite belongs to the mica group of materials, specifically it is lithium, aluminum-rich mica. Since Lepidolite is a mica material, it is not defined as stone.  Lepidolite is found naturally in a variety of colors, mainly pink, purple, and red, but also gray and, rarely, yellow, and colorless.

Found most in Brazil, Russia; California, United States, Canada; and Madagascar. Lepidolite was first discovered in the 18th century when it was named for its lavender color. However, it was later named "Lepidolite" by scientists, from the Greek word for “scale", referring to its scaly appearance caused by flakes of lithium.

Hardness 3-4

This is a natural stone that has had no treatment other than cutting, and polishing.
