Lepidolite History Mythology Information: Lepidolite was first recorded in the eighteenth century by Abbe Poda who named the stone ‘Lilalite’. This was done to create a wordplay on the name using its colour (lilac) and the Hindu word ‘Lila which means ‘play, game’. Later the mineralogist Kaproth renamed the stone as Lepidolite which means scale stone.
