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. The actual name ‘Garnet’ derives from ‘gernet‘. This was the word in use during 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 even blue. The Pyrope and Spessartite are the most famous varieties. Historically they can be seen in jewellery dating back thousands of years. They have been treasured by civilisations as diverse as the ancient Egyptians, Romans and Celts.
Metaphysically, Garnets are the fiery, stone of passion. As well as passion, they are also a stone that can inspire love and devotion. Garnets are powerfully energising and regenerating stones. Garnets also have various protective qualities, especially for those travelling.
