Superb unakite ladies pendant featuring a highly polished and particularly colourful cabochon.

Unakite is a metamorphic rock that started life 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.
A relatively hard stone which means it's easy to work with, unakite is mainly used as a lapidary material and when used in jewellery it goes particularly well with sterling silver.
