Garnets are a group of silicate minerals that have been used since the Bronze Age as gemstones and abrasives. Garnet is the birthstone for January.
As an essential tool in the constant battle to keep it all together, the garnet crystal helps us feel grounded and connected to the present moment. If you’re lacking in energy, it could be energy blockages within the body keeping you from your natural state of joy and vitality. A stone that symbolises physical love and the relationship between loving partners, the Garnet was a popular ornamental adornment among royalty and aristocrats. And all the animals of Noah’s Ark can thank a large Garnet stone for providing the only light on their biblical journey and guiding them safely to land. Featured in a range of colours from the red colour ray, a deeply vibrant and powerful vibration, each stone possesses a special beauty with shades ranging from ruby red and dark brown to pink and orange. The Garnet crystal meaning is rooted in ancient history and comes from the Latin word ‘granatum’, which means pomegranate, a reference to its intense red colour that resembles the glistening, deep red seeds of the fruit. The Garnet crystal was also cherished by early medieval jewellers who incorporated the stone into everything from rings and brooches to buckles and necklaces. Even then, it was more than just a fashion statement but was thought of as a protective talisman against negative energy. Possessing a special beauty all their own, the Garnet crystal stone meaning is linked with the heart chakra, making this deep red gemstone a dark and intense contrast to your other love-attracting stones like Jade and rose quartz.
