Taking Care of Your Unakite
Crystals pick up the energies they come into contact with. This means that during the journey your Unakite took to get to you, it might have come into contact with negative energy.
There is no need to worry, this is completely natural! To get rid of that negative energy, you’ll just need to cleanse your Unakite using one of the following methods.
The first method you can try for cleansing is washing your Unakite with warm, soapy water. You will want to use a soft, clean cloth to wash your crystal. You can do this with water from the tap and any cloth that you have at home. Make sure your spinner is completely dry before wearing it.
Another method you can try for cleansing is to leave your Unakite in the sunlight for a day. You can either do this outside or in a spot in your house that gets direct sunlight. The sun is incredibly effective at charging your crystal with positive energy.
When it comes to the upkeep of your crystal, you’ll want to engage with one of the methods listed above every few months. A good way to gauge if your crystal needs to be cleansed is if it is cloudy in appearance.

Once you’ve gotten rid of any negative energy your Unakite might have accumulated, it’s time to start using your Unakite to heal the heart.
The first step to engaging in any crystal healing is to get rid of any skepticisms you might have. Keeping an open mind about the possibilities of what your Unakite might be able to do can help unleash its full potential.
After opening your mind, you will want to set an intention for how you intend to use your Unakite. You will want to set an intention that is specific and related to the associations listed above.
For Unakite, you might consider setting an intention to let go of the past as you begin a new chapter of your life. You could also set an intention to help you heal your heart so you are in a place to open yourself up to love.
Once you’ve decided what your intention will be, hold your Unakite in your hand and speak that intention into it. This will charge your crystal to help you heal the way you intended. As you wear your spinner, keep your intention in mind and make choices in your daily life that align with it.
