Brazilian Lepidolite Mica Specimen - Hope, Transformation!
It is normal for tiny flakes (or 'scales'!) to "shed" off of the main crystal because of the immense number of tiny layers that make up the stone. It does not affect the beauty or energy of the piece - just be aware that some "shedding" is 100% normal. :-) A VERY energetic piece and quite intricate. The more you look, the more beauty you will see. MUCH nicer 'in person' than the photos can show - I guarantee it! Check out how it works with subtle energies below. I would NOT recommend submerging this piece in water if you wish to cleanse it. It would compromise the structural integrity of the stone.
It weighs about 1.8oz and measures approximately just under 2 1/2" inches long X 2" inches wide at the widest point X 1/4" inch thick at the thickest point. Code042017-19
