Unakite Jasper brings together the abundant, nurturing energy of green with the soft, caring passion of pink in one of Nature’s most healing crystals of the heart and mind. It resonates with the frequency of love, compassion and kindness, and is a stone dedicated to balancing the emotional body.

The elements of Red Jasper and Epidote blend beautifully in Unakite Jasper and embody strong, harmonious relationships. Its pink and green energies balance aspects of the heart, lifting spirits when one is down, and helps to release deep-seated emotions in a slow and gentle way. It promotes patience and persistence, and gradually eliminates bad habits and the thoughts and patterns that perpetuate them. It is a great stone for children’s sensitive emotions, and is particularly good for helping them bounce back from sorrow, grief or disappointment. Unakite supports anyone who feels a little lost, overwhelmed, or has trouble focusing on the here and now. [Eason, 280][Simmons, 219][Ahsian, 219]

Unakite Jasper is also called Epidote, for its main component deriving its name from the Greek epidosis meaning “growing together.” An amalgamation of Red Jasper, pink Feldspar and green Epidote, Unakite is solidly bound together and is said to symbolize “what comes together belongs together.” It forms in dense, opague masses as a granite rock and ranges in color from pistachio to moss green interlaced with areas of pink, peach or light red. It is named for the Unaka Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina, USA, where it was first found, but is also found in pebbles and boulders in glacial drifts around the Great Lakes, as well as Zimbabwe and Switzerland. It is occasionally listed as Epidotized Granite or Grandodiorite. [crystal-cure.com][www.shimmerlings.com][Lembo, 357]

uses - UnakiteUnakite Jasper Uses and Purposes

For lasting love, Unakite is traditionally sprinkled with dried yarrow and placed in a sealed bag as a marriage or commitment symbol. It should be replaced on anniversaries and the old crystal and yarrow cast into running water. To help two become three, place Unakite under the pillow to aid in conception. During pregnancy a piece of Unakite on the womb helps parents-to-be make spiritual connection with their unborn baby; it is marvelous for use during labor to ease the transition. [Eason, 280][Hall, 311]

Unakite Jasper fosters healthy relationships through balanced emotions. It encourages harmonious partnerships, both in love and in business, and is especially helpful for working closely with a relative or friend where positive personal interactions are vital. [Lembo, 357][Eason, 280]

As a professional support stone, Unakite helps increase business success in areas of beauty, aromatherapy, and fashion design. It is also a sustaining stone for marriage counselors and divorce attorneys. [Lembo, 357]

Unakite Jasper is superb for healing and nurturing the physical and emotional bodies during injury, prolonged illness or hospitalization. Its Earth energies bring gradual strength and renewed vitality, while helping one to understand and endure these frustrating or painful experiences. [Melody, 345][Hall, 311][Ahsian, 220][Gienger, 50-53]

Unakite Jasper is a remarkable talisman for cutting down or quitting smoking, and for overcoming other long-standing addictions such as overeating or the over-consumption of alcohol or drugs. Over time, it removes harmful toxins and energies from the system on a deep cellular level, and helps release emotional triggers that perpetuate the behavior. [Simmons, 219][Eason, 280]

A large specimen or bowl of Unakite tumblestones in the environment brings a calm, gentle energy and negates the effects of electromagnetic pollution from televisions, computers and other technological devices. [Hall, 311]

Placed on the Third Eye, Unakite Jasper promotes visualization and encourages psychic vision. It may also be used as a casting crystal for scrying, signifying where compromise and integration are needed. [Hall, 310]

emotional healing - UnakiteUnakite Jasper Physical Healing Energy

Unakite Jasper helps promote the growth of healthy tissue in general and is particularly useful in support of the heart and lungs, assisting function, circulation, balance of bodily fluids and metabolism. It is also considered highly restorative in cases of tissue deterioration and in treating diseases or cancers of these areas. [Ahsian, 219-220][Eason, 280]

Unakite Jasper aids the reproductive system, promoting healthy pregnancy and stimulating weight gain where required. It is believed to be good for breathing irregularities and hyperventilation, and helps ease the transition in labor. [Hall, 311][Eason, 280]

physical healing - UnakiteUnakite Jasper Emotional Healing Energy

Like other Jaspers, Unakite attunes to the earth and provides a slow, steady source of energy for healing and renewal. It not only supports the physical structure of the heart, but gently gets to the root cause of disease or health issues caused by the emotional heart, particularly deep-seated feelings that have been repressed, such as anger and resentment. Habitual internalization of these emotions creates standing patterns of energy within the body. Unakite brings these wounds to the surface in a way that avoids any new trauma and ameliorates their release slowly and gently, consistently over time, along with the negative thoughts and toxic behaviors that perpetuate them. Healing the wounded self and learning to navigate challenging situations with consciousness and ease allows one to enjoy healthy relationships through balanced emotions. [Simmons, 219][Ahsian, 219][Lembo, 356-357]

chakra balance - UnakiteUnakite Jasper Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy

Unakite Jasper is associated with the Heart Chakra, located near the center of the breastbone. It regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment. When the Heart Chakra is out of balance we may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and become critical of the little foibles of others. We may find ourselves having inappropriately strong emotional responses to everyday external stimuli. Green and pink crystal energies are used to resolve blockages and to re-balance the Heart Chakra, helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly.  We can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes.

spiritual crystals - UnakiteUnakite Jasper Spiritual Energy

Unakite Jasper works to align the emotional body with one’s spirituality. It encourages tolerance and gentleness toward all beings, and engenders patience and persistence in striving for harmony within the self. It is an excellent support stone for studying the Tree of Life, Kabbalah, or Kundalini (Life Force). [Lembo, 356][Simmons, 219]

Unakite is highly beneficial for rebirthing, bringing insights from the past to light as to the cause of blockages, then gently releasing issues that inhibit one’s spiritual or psychological growth. Placed on the Third Eye, Unakite is also helpful in past-life healing for going back to the source of a problem and reframing it. [Hall, 311]

talismans125 - UnakiteUnakite Jasper Talismans and Amulets

Unakite Jasper is a talisman for those who have trouble finding things. It is also a good luck charm, especially when taking a risk. [Eason, 280]

Unakite Jasper is a Guardian Harmonizer crystal. The Guardian talismans do not reveal their inner strength. These stones rarely, if ever, form transparent crystals. Rather, they hide their strength behind an opaque mask, obscuring the power they possess. In the physical world they are fantastic amulets for travel, protecting your loved ones, your possessions, and your physical security. In the spiritual world, Guardian crystals serve to guard your beliefs against doubt, helping you keep true to your ideals and reinforcing your strength of character. The Guardian crystals can also protect your spirits during trying and difficult times.

Harmonizers, called the chain and band silicates, bind together in a long chain, distributing energy in a balanced, long-term way. They encourage efforts aimed at smoothing a path through difficulties, promoting harmonious relationships within a larger group, like family, and a peaceful acceptance of life’s inherent situations.
