Unakite stones are a form of granite and feldspar, and unakite crystal was first discovered in the Unaka Range of the Appalachian Mountains. The word Unaka
itself comes from the Cherokee term unega
, "white." How interesting that a word meaning white has given its name to such a colorful gemstone! Use unakite beads in any jewelry piece you want to bring the earth’s powers and hues to, whether it’s a hair stick, pair of earrings, or a bangle.
