Unakite: We often think of the emotions as originating and residing in the heart, but another place where they live, often imprisoned, is in the solar plexus.

An opaque coral and olive-green stone (two colors associated with the solar plexus), it consists of three minerals: feldspar, epidote, and quartz. When one is supported by deepened self-esteem and self-awareness, it is easier to allow old feelings to arise so that they may be released. Unakite lends another element to self-awareness.

It is also believed to help release conditions, which have been inhibiting personal growth.
