Garnets are semi-precious stones, but they are not a single type of mineral. Instead they are from a group of several closely related silicate minerals. Garnets, which are the January birthstone also occur in a range of different colours. They can be anything from red and pink to green, yellow and black. These red garnets are from India, a country that produces garnets with the most intense colours. The Pyrope and Spessartite are the most well known varieties. The actual name ‘Garnet’ derives from ‘gernet‘. This was the word they would use in medieval times to describe the dark red colour. Their history goes back thousands of years. Garnets have been mined and highly prized, by ancient Egyptians and Romans and Celtic nations.
Metaphysically, Garnets are the fiery, stone of passion. As well as passion, they are a stone that can inspire love and devotion. Garnets are also powerfully energising and regenerating stones. Garnets also have protective qualities, especially for those travelling.
