This sacred stone was originally found in the Unaka Mountains of North Carolina, which became the inspiration for its name. Mottled pink and green, this balanced combination of passionately caring pink/red with the beautifully nurturing green give it a perfectly harmonious energy.
This energy is healing for the heart, balancing for the emotions, and compassionate and caring when life’s got you down.
Unakite helps to increase a sense of living in the now, it takes on the spirit of carpe diem. In this way, it facilitates in meditations, by deepening your meditative state and reminding you that this is the only moment you need to be aware of. When you need that push to do exactly what your heart desires, especially when rules and society dictate otherwise, this can be a perfect stone to have by your side, so you can take action and not let your dreams slip away. Wear Unakite jewellery, or keep it on you, to remind you to be present throughout the day. Have a small stone in your pocket to clutch hold of whenever you need to connect with its grounding energies or reconnect to the now. Don’t let life slip away, grab those awaiting opportunities because there’s no time like the present.
Unakite connects with the heart, bringing emotional balance and giving you a deeper understanding of your emotional needs. It strengthens your heart as you deal with painful emotions, helping you find calm inner peace. With its healing energy, it has the power to aid in transformation and rebirth and soothe any past life hurt.
Associated with the third eye chakra, Unakite is known to be a stone of vision. It is a great stone to use when scrying and helps encourage psychic visions.
Unakite is also beneficial to use after meditation and psychic work, because of its grounding energy and ability to balance your emotions. Its connection with the heart chakra help to balance your emotions with your spirituality.
For these same reasons Unakite can be a very supportive stone when you’re recovering from major illnesses. Place it in your home to infuse nature into your healing environment and fill it with Unakite’s gentle grounding properties.
