Named for the 14-century Middle English word meaning “dark red,” Garnet is a silicate mineral that has been used historically since at least the Bronze Age as a gemstone, abrasive, and pest repellent. This fiery red stone is said to enhance strength, endurance, and vigor, making it a favorite amongst practitioners who wish to tap into extra energy for ritual work.
Its color is a deep dark red, nearly brown or black in appearance in some specimens.
This highly protective stone is thought to guard from harm, shield health, and bolster strength of all kinds. In some customs garnets are exchanged between parting friends to symbolize affection and ensure that their paths will cross again one day.
It is an excellent stone for both travelers and practitioners alike, excellent as a charm and as an aid for ritual purposes.
