Large and highly polished unakite cabochon crafted for Stone Mania in a timeless sterling silver setting. This striking gemstone pendant comes complete with a gift pouch that will help keep the gemstone safe and the silver free from tarnish.
Unakite is a metamorphic rock that started life off as granite. It takes its name from the Unaka range of mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee where it was first discovered but can also be found in South Africa, Brazil and China. This mottled stone is composed of pink orthoclase, green epidote, the mineral feldspar and more often than not quartz. It's a relatively hard material that's exceptionally colourful which is why it's prized as a lapidary material.
In crystal healing unakite is said to be beneficial for the treatment of the reproductive system and will help stimulate a healthy pregnancy whilst facilitating the health of the unborn baby. Unakite tumbled stones make a striking addition to any collection of crystals and fine grade cabochons stand out as superb pieces of jewellery.
