It’s name afterthe Unaka Mountains in western North Carolina where it was first discovered. Unakite’s hardness and durability make it one of the easiest stones for beginners to tumble. In addition, this mineral can also be seen and used as decorative material within houses, museums, or specialty buildings. The most famous building known to have Unakite is the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington. Look for it on the trimming of the front steps right as you walk in or as floor tiles located at the south entrance.
