Lepidolite has been shaped into a heart and highly polished to show off its natural beauty. Puffy hearts make thoughtful gifts as wedding favours, valentines gifts, mother's day presents or just because.
Lepidolite is a pink to purple silicate. From the Greek word, lepidos, meaning ÒscaleÓ which alludes to the scaly appearance usually common to the mineral. Contains lithium, once used to calm the mind. Balances heart with mind. Also known as a stability stone.
The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral and in the past, the intellectual core of a human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human soul, the word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul and stylized depictions of hearts are used as prevalent symbols representing love.
