What is Unakite Jasper?

Unakite, sometimes called unakite jasper, is a variant form of granite. It is a blend of three different crystal types: epidote, orthoclase feldspar, and quartz. In gorgeous shades of green, pink, and peach; this naturally created gemstone exudes an emotionally and physically enriching power. High quality unakite jasper is considered to be a semiprecious stone and can be found carved into beads, pendants, orbs, and a variety of other shapes.

Unakite was named after the Unaka Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina where it was originally discovered. It has been found at the Great Lakes as well - most particularly near Lake Michigan. Outside of the United States, this stone can also be found in Zimbabwe and Switzerland.

Metaphysical Properties of Unakite

The energies of unakite jasper create balance and harmony between the emotional body and the mind. Because of this, it may be of aid to those requiring a higher degree of mental stability than what they currently have. It creates inner peace, and will gently eliminate conditions that may be impeding spiritual and psychological progress. Unakite is understood to create a state of balance between the body, mind, and spirit; it’s no wonder therefore, that it provides an overall feeling of centeredness and stability. It will guide you towards accessing the well-rounded existence that you seek.

This stone works to alleviate feelings of pain, anger, and stress by emitting soothing and therapeutic frequencies into its environment. Therefore, it can be especially useful if bad news has you feeling down. During such times, you may use or wear the stone to allow its energies to ease away your pain or heartache.

Unakite jasper is further recognized for its ability to enhance visionary capabilities through stimulating the third eye chakra; it can also provide us with an awareness of past lives. Looking at past lives often provides insight into what we are dealing with in the here and now. Upon opening the 3rd eye, you may become capable of visualizing various things you'd wish to manifest in order to improve your life. This stone is a solid choice for those seeking a more meaningful direction for their existence.

It can heighten courage levels, and can also assist you to build a higher degree of self confidence. Better developed self esteem can help you to gain control in areas where you'd previously feared to establish it. Whether you are nervous to ask for a raise at work or are fearful of dating again, this stone can help you to establish the confidence you need. In the process, it will transform fear into a positive and constructive energy, such as love, kindness, optimism, etc.

Try meditating with it held at either your crown or third eye chakra. You will find that it not only has the qualities already mentioned, but it also heightens psychic awareness, especially when held to the third eye area.

Unakite Healing Properties

Many illnesses emerge from unhealed past experience and trauma. The fact that unakite balances emotions, is the reason that it works so well to enable healing within the body. It is known to support recuperation from severe illness, to enhance health within the reproductive system (which is why it is commonly used to make fertility bracelets); and to fortify the health of unborn babies.

Additionally, it is believed to enhance healing within skin tissue, promote hair growth, protect us from EMF radiation; and is sometimes used to increase weight gain in targeted areas of the body. Unakite also promotes sound sleep, and is grounding when required to be.

  1. Do more drugs, it may be more helpful than your unakite myth. It's 100% satanic

    1. I am not sure what you mean. All faiths are borne from one original faith--Sumerian. The Sumerians did not have such beliefs as yours. How does such a belief coexist within peace and unity? Does it? Explain if so.

      I am not being mean but rather, ask you to explain in order to enlighten you. Why would you say this? What does it teach, and to who? Keep your response polite, please.
