Gemstone Information

Faceted petalite gems and specimens are prized by gemstone and mineral collectors. Petalite's name is derived from the Greek petalos (leaf), referring to its perfect cleavage. Colorless material is common, and large crystals have been mined. Other petalite colors include white to yellow or gray, yellowish green to light green and pink. Crystals range from transparent to translucent and are prized for their good clarity. Faceted gems aren't often seen due to petalite's cleavage planes.

Petalite is unique and colorful, with translucent shades of blue, white, yellow, grey and even pink. The word "petalite" is derived from the Greek word petalon, meaning leaf, because the gemstone makes the perfect shape and outline of a leaf. Petalite was discovered in Sweden in the 1800s by Jose Bonifacio de Andrada e Silva, a Brazilian mineralogist. It can be found in different areas all over the world, including Thailand, Brazil, Canada, Italy and the United States. This unique gemstone is mostly unknown to beginner collectors, but is believed to bring on a sense of relaxation and relieve stress. It is also used to symbolize leaving the past behind. Let go of the past and explore JTV's petalite jewelry collection today!

Petalite has a hardness rating of 6 - 6.5 on the Mohs scale, which makes it an ideal gem for earrings and pendants. It is mostly found in large clusters and must be faceted to fit each piece, but this gemstone favorite makes a stunning piece of jewelry. With a wide range of deep, vibrant colors or bright and joyful pastels, wearing petalite jewelry will command attention as a stylish and standout statement piece.

As always, wearing your favorite pieces of jewelry every day can cause a buildup of dirt and grime. However, no need to worry. Caring for petalite is simple. It is wise to keep petalite separate from other hard stones to avoid the risk of scratching. Keeping it in a soft, sturdy place will help protect petalite. To keep petalite jewelry shimmering and bright, use a soft brush with warm water and mild soap or detergent. Rinse and dry well, and then your piece can be shown off once again.
