ABC Wednesday - U


Today's alphabetical gemstone lecture reaches
U
for
UNAKITE


Unakite is a mixture of red and green, with some clear quartz.
There's a short description here.
For those interested in the symbolism of crystals, unakite contains the colours of Mars and Venus, making it a suitable love-gift!

More U posts can be found at Mrs Nesbitt's Place, the heart of ABC Wednesday.
Also at the Anthology site, and (if it's working!) on the Linky page.

Have fun!
