MICA GROUP

The Micas are an important group of minerals.  They represent the classic phyllosilicate mineral and are usually the first minerals to be thought of from this subclass of the Silicates Class.  Micas are significant rock forming minerals being found in all three rock types: igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary.  Because thin flakes of mica are generally flexible and brittle, it is surprising how resistant and durable mica crystals can be in withstanding high temperatures and pressures in metamorphic regimes.

Resisting the punishment of erosional environments.  Of course it is a group of minerals and most people who are knowledgeable about minerals know the three most common mica minerals.  Muscovite, Biotite, and Lepidolite and perhaps a few of the less common Micas Glauconite, Paragonite, Phlogopite and Zinnwaldite.  The Mica Group is actually a rather large group of minerals with over 30 members.

Lepidolite is the name of a rare lithium-rich mica mineral that is usually pink, red, or purple in color. It is the most common lithium-bearing mineral and serves as a minor ore of lithium metal, with rubidium and cesium sometimes being byproducts.  Flakes of lepidolite are sometimes responsible for the color of pink and red aventurine.

Lepidolite can only form in geochemical environments where high concentrations of lithium are available for mineral formation. Lepidolite is a rare mineral because these geochemical situations rarely occur.

The lithium ion is very small, and it does not readily substitute in other minerals. As a result, it is usually one of the last ions to form minerals during the crystallization of a subsurface magma. As other ions are depleted, the residual fluids of magma crystallization become progressively enriched with lithium.

During the final stages of crystallization, there might finally be a high enough concentration of lithium present to form discrete lithium minerals such as spodumene, lepidolite, and petalite. Elbaite tourmaline is another lithium-bearing mineral that forms in association with lepidolite and other lithium minerals. Other associated minerals include: beryl, cassiterite, cleavelandite, muscovite, quartz, topaz, and a variety of feldspar minerals.

LOCATIONS

lepidolite is found in Minas Gerais, Brazil; Manitoba, Canada; Honshu, Japan; Madagascar; Ural Mountains.  Also Russia; Skuleboda, Sweden; California, Maine, and New Mexico, United States; and Coolgardie, Western Australia and Zimbabwe.
