Unakite is primarily green epidote, combined with clear quartz and inclusions of pinkish feldspar. It’s sometimes called Unakite Granite, and is named after the Unakas mountains in North Carolina where it was first found. Since it contains both pink and green, the two colors associated with the heart chakra, it can be the perfect stone for heart healing, balance, and other work with the heart chakra. This balancing effect can be especially helpful for couples working together. It’s also an excellent support stone for pregnancy and childbirth.
Properties: Use at the 4th Chakra (Heart Chakra) for creating emotional balance, to stimulate compassion and empathy, to encourage gratitude, for spiritual ascension, to establish a connection with nature (especially with the plant kingdom), to balance chakra energy, to instill determination, and to facilitate feelings of love and friendship. This stone contains Epidote, so these properties also apply.
