Unakite can assist with better sleep and will also help to relieve stress.
It can bring your emotions and spiritual aspects into balance and assist when dealing with addictive behaviours.
A metamorphic rock, Unakite is formed from granite. Heated reactive fluids passing through the granite replace some of their original minerals with epidote. While generally leaving the pink coloured feldspar and greyish-clear quartz unaffected, this process adds the green of the epidote. This process is called metasomatism.
Metasomatic rocks can be extremely varied and often a microscope is required to recognise the altered state depending on the source of fluid in the reaction.
Looking like green granite, Unakite distinctly demonstrates this change and is reasonably easy to identify.
