Lithiophilite is a rare mineral with a monoclinic crystal system. Named for its Lithium content, it often occurs as brown to pinkish, vitreous to pearly, prismatic crystals. It is found in granitic pegmatites and is part of the triphylite series. Lithiophilite is often replaced by other secondary minerals due to its high reactivity.
Although it's quite a rare mineral, it can be found in various parts of the world, including Brazil, the United States (specifically Maine and South Dakota), Sweden, and Finland. Please note that lithiophilite is not typically used in jewelry due to its relative softness and susceptibility to replacement by other minerals.
Metaphysically, lithiophilite is said to have properties of positivity and dispelling negativity. Its energy is believed to encourage growth and development both spiritually and physically. It's considered a stone of transformation, helping the wearer in their journey of self-discovery and personal development. Please note that while many believe in the metaphysical properties of gemstones, they're not guaranteed; everyone experiences things differently.
