Unakite, also called epidote, comes the Greek epidosis, meaning “growing together”. Unakite is a type of granite, composed of pink orthoclase Feldspar, green Epidote and Clear Quartz. From this we get the meaning that what comes together belongs together. It has an excellent balancing action for your emotions… helps overcome helplessness, and depressed emotional states. It leads towards a sense of optimism, positive and enlightened understanding (gentle problem solving especially in the heart chakra). It generates hope for the future and willingness to pursue ones dreams. Unakite is said to lift your spirits when you are feeling down – this is the gemstone to help you to see the beauty in life. It encourages rebirthing and gently releasing conditions that inhibit one’s potential. Unakite supports convalescence and recovery from major illness. It specializes in issues of the reproductive system and stimulates healthy pregnancies while facilitating the health of the unborn. Known as the stone of Pregnancy and Rebirthing.
