Lepidolite Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Lepidolite

Know where your crystals come from

This Lepidolite comes from artisanal miners in Vakinankaratra, Madagascar. Artisanal mining for mica minerals typically has a low environmental impact and would be relatively low risk for miners.

This lapidary hand polishes stones in Antananarivo, Madagascar. It is a woman-owned and family-run business. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at one major gem show in the United States. Every year the lapidary takes on a major charity project at a rural school. Previous projects have included installing bathrooms, creating a playground, and building a sunshelter for parents.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries
I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.

In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.

In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar. In 2022, we plan to build a library with books in Malagassi and French.

Lepidolite Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published May 2015  •  Updated July 2022  •  Read Time: 7 minutes
Lepidolite is a gorgeous purple muscovite.  It sparkles with mica and is an ore for lithium.  Just like lithium is used in anxiety medication, Lepidolite is a go-to stone on days when we feel a little anxious and need some crystal support.  It reminds us that we are more capable than we give ourselves credit.  It helps us to take charge of our own life, rather than to allow other people to dictate our thoughts and emotions.  If it is our own brain that seems to be working against us, Lepidolite will speak to our heart and urge us to wrestle back control.  Lepidolite promises that life can get better and that laughter is one of best medicines that will get us there. […]

Tumbled Lepidolite

What You’ll Receive: 1 Stone - 100% natural Lepidolite

Selection Process: The stone I select for you will be carefully chosen for its beauty and appeal. If combined with other stones, I always take time to choose stones that look and feel good together.

Polishing Method: Polished by hand; small pieces of the matrix rock are knocked off during the tumbling process leaving scratches and tiny cavities. Each stone is unique and minor variations are what makes them beautiful.

Color: Dappled purple with a silver sparkle, may have minor gray areas from the matrix rock.

    I received the package yesterday and I cannot rave enough about how BEAUTIFUL and SOULFUL those stones are that you picked out for my son. He was so overjoyed that he could feel these stones were meant for him. Thank you so much for them. From the bottom of my heart thank you for bringing that kind of light and joy to my sons life.

  36. Alyssa H. (Georgia) (verified owner)

    I received two stones from Julie for my son who has severe ADHD and anxiety. The Blue Calcite and Lepidolite she picked out for him came and my son was beyond overjoyed to have stones he could feel were meant for him. He wears a small coil ball to put his stones in and these fit perfectly in it. I cannot rave enough about how Julie took her time to communicate with me and listen to my thoughts. If you want a perfect stone and a beautiful spirit guiding you through it, then I highly recommend Moonrise Crystal

  37. Nicole W. (California) (verified owner)
