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. Unakite stones go well with wood and leather as well as all kinds of wire. Pair our unakite beads with a smooth unakite cabochon for a whole set--give unakite a try today!
