Unakite is an altered granite composed of pink orthoclase feldspar, green epidote, and generally colorless quartz.

It was first found in the United States in the Unaka mountain range of North Carolina from which it gets its name. Unakite exists in various shades of green and pink and is usually mottled in appearance.

Unakite has the ability to unleash buried emotional pain and to also aid in the body’s healing process. It supports convalescence and recovery from major illness.

Heishi is the name given to this style of beads. A small polished bead, often of shell, coral, or turquoise, especially a small flat disk that can be strung with others of uniform size to form a smooth cylindrical strand, used to make jewelry.

The style of bead come from the Kewa Pueblo people (formerly Santo Domingo Pueblo) of New Mexico, before the use of metals in jewelry by that people.
