Garnets are semi-precious stones, but are not a single type of mineral. Instead they are from a group of several closely related silicate minerals. The actual name ‘Garnet’ derives from ‘gernet‘. This was the word used in medieval times to describe the dark red colour. These are Indian Garnets, a country that is famous for producing stones with the most intense colours. Garnets, which are the January birthstone can found in a range of different colours. They can be anything from red and pink to green, yellow and also even blue. Historically their use in all kinds of jewellery goes back thousands of years. They were especially popular with the ancient Egyptians, Romans and also Celts.
Metaphysically, Garnets are the fiery, stone of passion. As well as passion, they are a stone that can inspire love and devotion. Garnets are powerfully energising and regenerating stones. Garnets also have powerful protective qualities, and are especially useful for those travelling away from home.
