“Mental Imbalances and Emotional Mood Swings: The brain and the mind are tricky to deal with if they fall out of balance. If no chemical imbalances are evident, the use of lepidolite with rubellite inclusions can realign the swinging pendulum. Lepidolite is made up of lithium mica. Do not place this stone into your drinking water, but do carry it with you daily. Sleep and meditate with lepidolite. Look at it and hold it close. Allow the energy of the lithium to realign you. Other stones that may assist are chrysocolla, moonstone and peacock ore. Peacock ore is also known as chalcopyrite, bornite and peacock copper. Use peacock ore to see the full spectrum of life and to be grounded in reality while allowing higher vibrations to flow through you.” ~excerpted from Chakra Awakening
