Due to Unakite having Epidote, this mineral is a natural enhancer of any emotion or vibration around it. For example, if one is experiencing a bad day and is carrying a piece of Unakite, we recommend placing it aside for the time being. Let yourself start fresh and anew the next day with a levelled head and positive attitude.
Science & Origin of Unakite
Unakite, also known as Epidotized or Epidote Granite, is a prevalent type of Granite with Epidote, Pink Orthoclase, and Quartz inclusions. Its name derives from the location it was discovered, the Unaka Mountains in western North Carolina, U.S. Unakite’s hardness and durability make it one of the most straightforward stones for beginners to tumble and popular material for jewellers to cut into cabochons. In addition, this mineral can also be seen and used as decorative material within houses, museums, or speciality buildings. The most famous building known to have Unakite is the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. You can see it trimming on the front steps right as you walk in or as floor tiles at the south entrance. This mineral has multiple localities in the United States aside from North Carolina. Active and abundant veins are located in New Jersey and Virginia, with most of the “construction grade” material coming out of the latter locality. Other countries that host notable deposits of Unakite are China, Brazil, South Africa, and Sierra Leone.
