This is a Lepidolite obelisk carved from natural purple Lepidolite stone. Obelisks are four-sided towers with a pyramid top. This obelisk is larger and more sturdy than many of the other Lepidolite towers I've come across. The Obelisk is best known for its use in ancient Egyptian Architecture as a representation of rays of light and honoring the Sun god. Metaphysically, stone Obelisks are used to release built-up, earth-bound energies and as a conduit to the ethereal realm. Lepidolite is a calming stone used to relieve anxieties and bring comfort.

Lepidolite contains about 5% Lithium. In modern medicine, certain psychiatric illnesses are treated with Lithium. Interestingly, the use of Lepidolite for psychiatric purposes dates back 1,800 years to the Greek physician Galen. He also treated those suffering from 'mania' by having them bathe in springs and drink water that was rich in the mineral Lepidolite, and therefore Lithium. It wasn't until the early 1900s that we rediscovered the usefulness of the Lithium found in Lepidolite.
Lepidolite's practical application matches its metaphysical attributes; Lepidolite is thought to have a calming, mood-stabilizing effect. It brings comfort, acceptance and can quell unnecessary worries. A wonderful stone to work into a bedtime routine or keep with you during stressful situations
