These Unakite Towers show off a beautiful blend of green and pink stone that they are famously known for. Unakite is a stone known for balance, grounding the self while bringing emotions and spirituality together.
Unakite is technically a rock and not a gemstone made up of multiple other stones. This gives unakite its familiar moss-on-brick appearance. The patterns, durability and affordability of unakite have also made it a useful stone for architecture--its most prominent use is trimming on the front steps of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.!
Add them to your sacred space for a boost in concentration, peace, and quieting of the mind for your meditation practice.
Unakite is associated with two chakras: to the third eye chakra and to the heart chakra for its ability to balance emotions. It is not a current birthstone, but it has been historically assigned to March. It is also thought to offer patience and balance to Capricorn and Scorpio.
This metamorphic rock is formed when granite is altered by hydrothermal activity. Unakite--also referred to as epidote/epidotized granite--blends green epidote, pink orthoclase feldspar and clear quartz .
