Welcome to another Wednesday of Wonders from the world of gemstones!
The first stone that I ever purchased for the sole purpose of working with its metaphysical properties, was a Unakite.
I was in a little metaphysical store in Shreveport, Louisiana with my best friend and spotted it. Each stone had a small card attached explaining the properties. The words that caught my eye were “Anti-Aging Stone.” Sold!!
After I bought it and did some more research, I discovered this little stone helps draw negative energy away from the heart chakra and lifts spirits when feeling down. It is from the Jasper family and resonates with the frequency of love, compassion, and kindness. It is a stone dedicated to balancing the emotional body.
An amalgamation of Red Jasper, pink Feldspar, and green Epidote, Unakite is solidly bound together and is said to symbolize “what comes together belongs together.” It forms in dense, opaque masses as a granite rock and ranges in color from pistachio to moss green interlaced with areas of pink, peach, or light red. It is named for the Unaka Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina, USA, where it was first found, but is also found in pebbles and boulders in glacial drifts around the Great Lakes, as well as Zimbabwe and Switzerland.
Unakite Jasper fosters healthy relationships through balanced emotions. It encourages harmonious partnerships, both in love and in business, and is especially helpful for working closely with a relative or friend where positive personal interactions are vital.
It’s a wonderful little stone to work with and carry with you. Often, I put it in my filtered water container to make tonic water.
I’d love to hear from you. Do you have a Unakite in your collection?
