Unakite is a type of granite that is composed of pink feldspar, green epidote, and clear quartz. In order for a piece to even be considered Unakite it is a must for it to contain pink granite inclusions, if it does not then it would just be considered an Epidosite. Unakite was discovered by a man of the name Mr. Bradly in the year 1874. The stone was named after the Unaka mountain rage located in North Carolina, which is a state within the United States, where it was first discovered. The more popular form of unakite is in its tumbled form. Unakite is often used as flooring tiles, stair treads, windowsills, and facing stone. In fact, the most prominent use of unakite is in the trimmings of the front steps and floor tiles located inside the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History located in Washington D.C in the United States.
In metaphysical belief, unakite is associated with the heart chakra in order to aid in balancing emotions as well as the third eye chakra for vision. Unakite is also said to provide feelings of both empathy and compassion. It is mainly utilized for alignment, healing, and perseverance.
