PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Lepidolite is a lilac-grey or rose-coloured member of the mica group of minerals with chemical formula K 3 4O 10 2. It is the most abundant lithium-bearing mineral and is a secondary source of this metal. It is a phyllosilicate mineral and a member of the polylithionite-trilithionite series. This is Lepidolite from Rubicon mine but polished in SA. A very nice range of purple colour, sometimes with specular or needle like inclusions which produce complex patterns of white and purple. This is very funky material and is not commonly available from other regions. The Rubicon mine has recently changed hands and therefore the rough material is no longer available for purchase. Therefore it is unlikely this material will be coming up again in future. Very affordable. Price is grade dependent. Item/s are as shown.
