Gemstone of the Week: Unakite
Unakite is an interesting form of Granite. It's Granite that has a high content of a material known as Epidote, thus Unakite is also known as Epidotized-Granite. Unakite is a gorgeously mottled stone of green (the Epidote) and pink (the Granite). It is a very common beach stone in Michigan and makes some really lovely jewelry and carved sculptures.
