Lepidolite, also known as Flower Sugilite, Lavenderine, Lilalite, Lilianthite, Lithia Mica, and Lithionglimme, is a lithium-rich mica. The pure form of Lepidolite is actually crystallized Lithium, the same mineral used in antidepressant medication. Lepidolite is a common matrix mineral to Tourmaline and Quartz. It was named in 1792 by Martin Klaproth from the Greek words lepidos for "scale" and lithos for "stone".
