Unakite Gemstone Properties


Unakite General Gemstone Details

ˈyü-nə-ˌkīt

UnakiteStone of Higher Spiritual Forces

Unakite…or Epidote with feldspar as it is also known, consists of a combination of deformed feldspar, green epidote and quartz solidly bound together, thus creating the beautiful pistachio and pink coloring. The splashes of soft peach against a fresh green colored background makes Unakite a much beloved and magical gemstone.

The stone takes it’s name from the Greek word epidosis, meaning “growing together”, and it is these materials bound together that conveys the meaning that what comes together, belongs together.

Unakite Scientific Properties

UnakiteMohs Hardness of 6.5 with a monoclinic crystal structure

Deep in the Unaka Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina, Peach Feldspar (a sister to Moonstone) formed in Quartz rich Granite, while green Epidote precipitated out of nearby magma flows, and it is this marriage of elements that gave birth to a beautifully balanced gemstone.

Unakite does not crystallize. It is found in masses, much like Chalcedonies are. Some deposits are found in Zimbabwe and Switzerland, but the gemstone is named for it’s North American home, the Unaka Mountains. Occasionally the gem is listed as Epidotized Granite or Grandodiorite, but it is Unakite that is the most commonly known.

Pebbles and boulders of Unakite have been found in Glacial drifts around the Great Lakes, especially near Lake Michigan.
