    You know what Leigh this is so pretty..but I am one who is not fond of Unakite..i have some and I don’t use it I love so many but those don’t do much for me…of course your design is great and you have paired it nicely!

    This is very pretty, and believe it or not its not my all time favorite stone, but today I was at a show and I sold 5 pendants in this stone, so today people liked it.

    I actually adore unakite — one of my favorite stones. It reminds me of one of my favorite dinners – grilled salmon on spring greens. :-) The availability of the “good stuff” has declined in the past few years, but when you can find the ones like this where the salmon color comes through rather than a muddy pinkish color, then you’ve got a winner, and I definitely think you have a winner here!
