0.00

A piece of Lepidolite sits inside of a fine silver scalloped bezel, atop a sterling silver backplate, with beaded details. A hand-stamped ring band adorns the back. The band has been stamped .925, indicating authenticity. It was given a black patina and then brought to a soft, satin finish. 

Lepidolite belongs to the mica group of minerals; specifically it is lithium, aluminium-rich mica. Since lepidolite is a mica material, it is not defined as stone. Lepidolite was first discovered in the 18th century, when it was called "lilalite" because of its lavender color. However, it was later named "lepidolite" by scientists, from the Greek "lepidos", which means "scale", referring to its scaly appearance caused by flakes of lithium. Lepidolite occurs in granite pegmatites and tin veins. It is often found with other crystals such as tourmaline and quartz. Lepidolite has been mined in areas such as Brazil, the U.S., Canada, Sweden and Germany.
