What is Unakite?
Unakite is a true rock: a composite material made up of
multiple other stones. This gives unakite its familiar moss-on-brick
appearance and makes it a popular lapidary material. The patterns,
durability and affordability of unakite have also made it a useful stone
for architecture--its most prominent use is trimming on the front steps
of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.!
Unakite was first discovered in the United States, in
the Unakas mountains of western North Carolina/eastern Tennessee (hence
its name). However, it can also be found on the beaches of Lake
Superior, where it was originally dragged by glaciers, as well as washed
down from the mountains into rivers in Virginia.
Unakite is said to be a stone of vision, opening the
third eye and useful for scrying. It is also believed to be a stone of
balance, grounding the self while bringing emotions and spirituality
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.
