# Dispersion of Lithium Ions in Nature (Ratio Similar to Isotopes?)

I'm working on a project that identifies average characteristics of different elements. I'm stuck on lithium, I can't find a way to ratio lithium I and lithium II that symbolizes how it is in nature. I tried looking around on the internet but I haven't found any mention of ratios to ions only ratios to isotopes. Does anyone know of anything that might help?

• Doesn't really answer the question. If this means anything I could use the ratio in plasma conditions. – user4960003 Jun 15 '15 at 12:23
• Alright I'm very frustrated, not with this site but with my project, does anyone out there know or understand how lithium ions are dispersed in nature? – user4960003 Jun 16 '15 at 0:48
• I'm not entirely sure what you're after. Are you trying to find $\ce{Li+:Li2+}$? It's going to be nearly infinite (or nearly zero, if you reverse it.) Aside from in plasmas, lithium is almost always in the +1 oxidation state. – Jason Patterson Jun 16 '15 at 1:08
• The reference to isotopes in the question is very confusing if you really are asking about the ratio of lithium(I) ions to lithium(II) ions. Outside of high-energy plasmas, particle accelerators, or the vicinity of stellar cores, there aren't going to be many lithium(II) ions on Earth or in the universe. – Curt F. Jun 16 '15 at 2:14
