Unakite the pretty patterning in Unakite is formed from its mixture of mossy green pistacite and pink feldspar. The green and red tones have made this stone sacred to Mars and Venus, representing their passion and also the creative energy and magical power that is generated when two opposites are brought together in a balanced way. The stone can be used in any spells linked to strong emotions such as lust, courage or daring and also to increase marital harmony, strengthen partnerships and increase understanding between people.
Variscite a beautiful green or turquoise coloured stone, usually covered with pale to dark brown lines. Variscite contains the energy of the Earth in a very pure and powerful form. The brown, branching tracks running across the smooth green surface look very like the channels of Earth energy that stream through every landscape and because of this the stone is often used for Earth magic. Carry a piece with you when searching for sacred places in the landscape or ley lines. Variscite beads can be used to make a pendulum that is excellent for dowsing Earth energy on maps. Meditation with the stone can help you to discover new insights about the landscape and sacred sites around you and also how you can play your part in cherishing and protecting these places.
Vivianite also known as Odontolite, Vivianite is not a stone. It is actually fossilised dinosaur bone that has been naturally stained by minerals in the earth, taking on a turquoise hue that has often led it to be confused with the stone Turquoise. It holds memories of the long ages of the Earth and the weight of history and can be used in magic or meditation to find out where you belong in this vast, epic story. Use in spells to increase patience and endurance or to find the energy to see a difficult task through to the end.
