Mozambique Lepidolite

In Tucson, we were very fortunate to run across a gentleman who works in the mine in Mozambique where this material is found. We have seen lots of Lepidolite, and whereas it often has some sparkle in it, never have we seen anything even close to this.

It apparently comes from only this one mine, and has to be seen to be believed.

Further, Lepidolite is by nature a somewhat softer and porous stone. Consequently, it often can be difficult to polish. This Lepidolite is apparently harder than the standard version, and takes a polish much like agate or jasper.

If you are wondering if these spheres will 'light up' for you like they do in the photos... well, that depends.

If you live in a cave (a very dark one) the answer is no. Otherwise, you will not believe the sparkle that you will see in these spheres, even in natural ambient light. If you hold one in sunlight or under a light source, your only possible response will be WOW!

Any collector, especially any sphere collector, will be absolutely thrilled with these specimens. This is one of those very special finds that really makes selling rocks fun, and we are proud to be able to offer these amazing spheres to our clients and friends.

Update: We were very sad to learn during our 2012 Tucson trip that this amazing Lepidolite is no longer available. The deposit has apparently been depleted.

We have only these spheres listed and a few more in our inventory. We definitely will be keeping one in our personal collection.

If you can afford only one special piece this year, one of these should be right near the top of your list.
