ASX lithium shares are putting in a mixed performance today.

While a few lithium stocks are smashing the 1.2% loss posted by the All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) on Friday afternoon, others are significantly trailing the benchmark index.

This comes as lithium prices remain near record highs amid strong global demand for electric vehicle and grid storage batteries.

We'll kick off with today's two worst-performing ASX lithium shares.

ASX lithium shares in the red

The leading loss maker today is Nova Minerals Ltd (ASX: NVA). The small-cap explorer is focused on both gold and lithium, with a 37% stake in the Snow Lake Lithium Project in Manitoba, Canada. The Nova Minerals share price is down 8.7% today and down 47% in 2022.

Also losing ground today is Global Lithium Resources Ltd (ASX: GL1). The emerging lithium exploration company is primarily focused on the Marble Bar Lithium Project, located in Western Australia. The Global Lithium share price is down 7% today but remains up 87% year-to-date.

With the two leading loss makers covered, here are the top two ASX lithium shares today.

Charging higher

The broader selling pressure hitting the market today hasn't impacted investor appetite for today's second-best performer, Prospect Resources Ltd (ASX: PSC). The battery minerals explorer share price is up 4.8% at the time of writing.

And the best performing ASX lithium share today is Aurora Energy Metals Ltd (ASX: 1AE). The United States-focused uranium and lithium explorer commenced trading on the ASX on 18 May this year with a focus on its Aurora Energy Metals Project in Oregon. The Aurora Energy share price is up 9.3% today.

As for the top name ASX lithium shares?

Rounding off the list with some of the biggest lithium stocks, the Core Lithium Ltd (ASX: CXO) share price is frozen today after the company requested a trading halt pending an announcement regarding the launch of its $100 million capital raise.

Meanwhile, the Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS) share price is down 2.4% and Allkem Ltd (ASX: AKE) shares are down 2.8%.
