Petalite Tumble

Petalite is a lithium aluminum silicate mineral that is often found in granitic pegmatites, which are coarse-grained igneous rocks. Petalite was first discovered in 1800 on the island of Utö in Sweden. It has since been found in various locations around the world, including Brazil, Australia, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and the United States. Petalite typically forms in pegmatite veins associated with granitic rocks, where it crystallizes in large, well-formed crystals.

Petalite crystals often occur as prismatic or tabular forms, with striations running parallel to the length of the crystal. The color of petalite can vary, but it is commonly found in shades of white, colorless, gray, or pale pink. Its luster is typically vitreous to pearly.

One of the notable features of petalite is its exceptional clarity and transparency. It has a relatively high refractive index, which contributes to its glassy appearance. Petalite crystals can sometimes exhibit cleavage planes, which may cause them to break along flat surfaces.

Petalite is also known for its lightness and low specific gravity, making it one of the lightest gemstones available. This characteristic, along with its clarity and hardness (Mohs scale 6 to 6.5), makes petalite suitable for faceting and use in jewelry.

Overall, petalite is prized for its beauty, clarity, and rarity. It is often sought after by collectors and lapidaries for its unique appearance and potential as a gemstone. In addition to its use in jewelry, petalite is also valued in the metaphysical community for its purported calming and protective properties.
