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 the word ‘gernet‘. This was the ‘Old English’ word in use during medieval times, to describe the dark red colour. These Garnets are from India, a country famous for producing stones with the most intense colours. Garnets, 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. Historically they have been made into jewellery for thousands of years. With civilisations as diverse as the ancient Egyptians, Romans and 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, especially for those travelling far from home.
