Ref: Lepidolite
Lepidolite, (also called MICA) is the most common lithium mineral, basic potassium and lithium aluminosilicate; a member of the common mica group. It is a major source of lithium.
Because it is one of the few minerals containing appreciable amounts of rubidium, it is useful in determining geological age. Lepidolite occurs almost exclusively in granite pegmatites and has a characteristic purple flakey appearance, often in spheroidal groups. These crystals are refered to as 'books' containing 'leaves' of crystal which can be easily cleaved from each other using a sharp knife.
