THE GEMSTONE GARNET
Garnet means 'the grainy one', coming from the Latin 'granum', for grain. This makes reference not only to the typical roundish shape of the crystals, but also the seeds of a ripe pomegranate. Garnet exemplifies hope, empowerment, and all things nurturing from Mother Earth. In shades as varied as a magnificent sunrise, to the lush and verdant greens of growth and renewal, it is a stone of prosperity and abundance; encouraging gratitude and service to others.
