learn more about the crystal garnet

Introduction to Garnet

The word "garnet" originally stems from the Latin word "garanatus," which means "seed." Back in the 14th-century, garnet crystals were similar in shape, size, & color to pomegranate seeds, which were plentiful in a lot of areas. Since the similarities were so on point, they started referring to this beautiful new red rock they found as Garnet.

The crystal has remained a widely-used stone throughout history. It is considered a gift of love, especially when celebrating 2nd wedding anniversaries.

Garnet is also the birthstone for January and associated with Leo, Virgo, Capricorn, and Aquarius.

Garnet Meaning

Garnet is a key tool to use if you are looking to deepen a relationship. It's a super passionate stone and can be used to enhance sensuality, sexuality, and intimacy while also assisting with increasing commitment, honesty, and hope.

Garnet also assists with moving past old feelings and changing behaviors. Use it to release bad karma and habits. Hold on to it and focus on removing and transforming negative energy. Garnet's meaning is all about regeneration and revitalization, so use its energies when you want a "restart" or "reset."

You can also use garnet as a protective energy stone during travel, eliminate nightmares, or overcome crisis and trauma.

Chakra-wise, this beautiful dark-red stone is primarily associated with the root chakra, but also with the heart chakra. It can be used to balance, purify, align, and remove negative energy from all of your chakras and aura.
