    Lepidolite Gemstone Round 8mm Approximatley (~48pce Strand) - 40 cm /16" Strand - Batch # 0622

    An uncommon mica which has only become available in large quantities in the past decade as the nature of the stone makes it difficult to cut. Its name originates from the Greek lepidos (scale) lithos (stone). Sometimes incorrectly referred to as Chinese Charoite.

    Referred to as the “Peace Stone” as it is believed to attract peace, luck and happiness and drives away negativity. Sometimes called Lavenderine. Micaceous plates create light and dark patches of purple. Sold as temporary strung 40cm (approx) strands.
