Mineralogy of Unakite
Color: Green and pink
Luminescence: Red, weak (short wave)
Location: The most notable deposits for Unakite are found in the United States (North Carolina, Virginia, and along the shores of Lake Superior). Additional deposits have been found in Brazil, China, Sierra Leone, and South Africa.
Mineral Family: Unakite is not a mineral, but rather a rock. As an easy way to understand the difference, think of rocks as being like cookies and minerals as being the ingredients which make up those cookies. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In the case of Unakite, it is a combination of green Epidote, pink Feldspar, with trace amounts of Clear Quartz.
Formation: Unakite is sometimes called Unakite Jasper, but it is not in fact a true Jasper. Instead it is a blend of igneous and metamorphic rock, or more specifically a type of altered Granite.
Mining: Typically mined at secondary deposits, much of the Unakite currently on the market is pebbles gathered from the shores of Lake Superior. Others are found in river valleys after being washed downstream from their primary deposit in the mountains.
Enhancements: All varieties of Unakite are fully natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
Synonyms: Unakite Jasper, Epidot Granite, Epidotized Granite
History of Unakite
Unakite is a relatively “new” healing stone whose healing properties have only recently been explored. It was first discovered in the Unakas mountains of North Carolina, USA, from which it derives its name.

Healing Properties of Unakite
Spiritual: Unakite is a highly practical stone, making it an invaluable aid for anyone seeking spiritual enlightenment. It reminds us to start at the beginning and look at our own patterns, habits, and belief systems and to discard anything which does not serve Light and Love. Unakite teaches us patience, that true change sometimes takes time, and we must allow wisdom to unfold at its own pace. Unakite also stimulates the Third Eye and makes an excellent stone for scrying, visualization, and other forms of psychic work. Unakite is attuned to the Heart Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Scorpio. It is connected to the element of Earth and vibrates to the number 9.
Emotional: Unakite balances the emotional body and helps us to connect our emotions with our higher spiritual callings. It shows us how to let go of negative habitual thoughts and harmful inner dialogues. Unakite softly whispers to us that we are “okay” and that any quest for perfection is a fool’s errand. Instead we are encouraged to see our own beauty and natural gifts and to love ourselves for who we are. It is a particularly helpful stone for anyone who is feeling “sensitive” and wants to be a little more resilient and capable of handling the chaos of modern life.
Mental: Unakite is a stone of new beginnings and rebirth, a state of events which can sometimes be difficult for the mind to comprehend. Unakite helps the mind deal with new information and process the past. As this occurs, it allows the mind to release blocks within the body and energy system allowing one to “let go” and grow. Unakite gently shows us how to stay in the present moment and to be “easy” in our minds even during times of great change.
Physical: Unakite can help us look beneath the obvious physical symptoms to find the root cause underlying any disease. This makes Unakite a particularly good choice for doctors, nurses, and anyone in the mainstream or alternative healthcare industry. Unakite is most often used by metaphysical healers to facilitate healthy weight gain and to promote the growth of healthy tissues. It is also said to be beneficial for the reproductive system and to help maintain a healthy pregnancy. It is believed to be particularly good for anyone who needs to detox their body or regulate their health.

Earth to Pocket
Earth to Pocket is the Moonrise Crystal business mission. It’s the promise that any stones purchased here will be consciously sourced and the journey of the stone, from the Earth and into your Pocket, will be as transparent as possible.
These Unakites were mined and tumbled in South Africa.
I met the owner of the South African tumbling company at the 2014 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. This company only sells tumbled stones twice a year, once at the Tucson show and later at the Sainte Marie Aux Mines International Mineral and Gem Expo in Provence, France. They offer the largest selection of high quality tumbled stones in the industry and are one of my favorite suppliers.
It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Unakite for you.
This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Unakite or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Unakite measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and has a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.
The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips and be a soft green with salmon pink markings. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.
With their beautiful color and clean energies, these Unakite are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, use them in a crystal elixir, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.
Safe Handling of Unakite
Unakite contains Aluminum and may also contain Zirconium. While in tumbled or polished form it may be considered safe to handle, it should NOT be used to make direct-infusion “Unakite water” for drinking or bathing. Zirconium is a radioactive element. You can however, make a safe elixir using an indirect method – simply place the stone near, but not touching, the water.
Good To Know:
Unakite are physically durable stones. As long as they are rounded and without thin edges, they can be carried in a pocket or medicine bag, or worn as jewelry on an everyday basis, without significant danger of the stone chipping or breaking.
Unakite can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.
Unakite can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.
Unakite can be left in sunshine for extended periods of time without losing their color, especially if the stone is opaque, rather than translucent or transparent. However, it is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
