But, for all those who DID have the misfortune of hearing me live tonight and wanted to hear about the crystal of the week, here you go:
Unakite helps us to release negativity and unforgiveness. Holding or wearing unakite is especially helpful to people suffering from a long term illness as it nurtures the body and soul. A gentle stone, unakite is probably best known for being helpful to pregnant woman and growing babies. Unakite helps the baby to grow healthy and strong in the womb. It alleviates fear and tension surrounding the birth process -- making it an especially great gift for new moms. I often make a bracelet with unakite beads and a St. Gerard medal because he's the saint of expectant mothers. Don't ask me why a guy is the saint of expectant mothers. I just know he's been assigned to help new moms, so I ask him to pitch in and help out whenever I make a unakite bracelet.
If you know someone who is prone to anger, give them a piece of unakite to wear or give them a unakite paper weight to keep near them on the desk or bedside end table as it will help calm their soul and nurture their heart so they're no longer prone to anger. Unakite also works to increase self-confidence, and as we all know, deep insecurity is at the heart of all angry people.
