Unakite was first discovered in the United States in the Unakas mountains of North Carolina from which it gets its name. It can be found on the shores of Lake Superior. Unakite is a type of igneous rock that is composed primarily of pink orthoclase feldspar, green epidote, and quartz.
The appearance of unakite is characterized by its mottled green and pink coloration, often with specks or veins of white quartz running throughout. The green color comes from the presence of epidote, while the pink color is due to the orthoclase feldspar. These colors create a distinctive and attractive appearance that is often used in jewelry and lapidary work. Unakite is also prized for its metaphysical properties, with some believing it to promote emotional healing and balance.
Among crystal healing practitioners, unakite is used to support convalescence from illness. It is also believed to affect the reproductive system, healthy pregnancy and the growth of skin and hair.
Unakite is associated with two chakras: to the third eye chakra for its use in vision and scrying and to the heart chakra for its ability to balance emotions. It is not a current birthstone, but it has been historically assigned to March. It is also thought to offer patience and balance to Capricorn and Scorpio.
