It was first discovered in the United States in the Unakas mountains 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 is not limited to the United States, and has also been reported in South Africa, Sierra Leone, Brazil, and China. Unakite is considered a semiprecious stone; it will take a good polish and is also referred to as epidotized or epidote granite.
This beautiful handmade traditional 5 decade rosary handcrafted by local artisan in Oklahoma is made of large 10mm non-faceted (smooth) stones. The Large Crucifix measures 2 1/8 inches and is really stunning. Finished with a beautiful Miraculous Medal (representation), this rosary is a real heirloom. The rosary is large enough to hang on the wall for display or carry and use. I've been told the larger beads are more comfortable for arthritic hands to hold. This Rosary comes with a lifetime repair warranted and a velveteen carrying bag. A handmade charm saying "hand made" in the rosary color will be attached to the bag.

I purchased these for my niece who is converting to Catholicism, they are beautiful. When I opened the package to see them for the first time I teared up and gasped they are stunning!

I was a little unhappy with the unakite beads not being nearly as polished as it is in the picture. They look more dull and rough cut in person. Overall it's a well made heavy rosary.
