This gorgeous, amazing stone comes in many colors and they are all pretty fab.
Still, I am particularly fond of the deep, dark red variety; so for the purposes of this blog article I will focus on it.
When I look at the rich color of this lovely stone, I am reminded of its mighty power. The combination of blood-red color and power instantly takes me to its historical use as as 'A Warrior Stone'.
Some Asiatic tribes used garnet for bullets – believing that this blood-colored stone would be more effective than a lead bullet at inflicting a deadly wound.
Interestingly enough, it was also worn by warriors to protect against the infliction of wounds; causing the warrior to have complete invulnerability.
Celtic High Priests placed garnet in their breastplates to surround themselves with protective forces.
Indeed, this stone is one of the most ancient of talismans. It is considered invaluable due to its powerful protective energies and its strong healing properties.
Physcial Healing Properties:
Physically, this lovely gemstone can be used to reduce body toxins, stimulate metabolism, and assimilate vitamins and minerals.
Many crystal healing specialists have successfully treated acid reflux, adrenal gland regulation, and immune system disorders.
Garnet is a stone that is especially powerful in correcting sexual dysfunction and promoting sensuality in relationships. I have made garnet infused sensual massage oils with great success ;)
This incredible stone has an affinity for the pituitary gland, making it a preferred tool for expanding awareness and assisting with past-life regression. Use garnet to access ancient memory.
Wear this little gem to return negative energy projected toward you to its origin.
If you find yourself suffering at the hands of malicious gossip and/or lies - simply relax, let go of the oh-too-human tendency to retaliate and let garnet do its work.
After all, most often when we try to determine exactly who is attacking us (wittingly or not), we get our facts mixed up and find ourselves feeling unsure and confused. Garnet knows the precise origin of the negativity. It is not emotionally reactive. It is not vengeful. It simply returns negativity to its source. Perfect.
Garnet is linked to the star signs of Scorpio, Capricorn, and Aries.
Garnet is primarily associated with the 1st chakra (the root chakra), and secondarily with the 4th chakra (the heart chakra).
That concludes our journey through the world of the very powerful garnet …
I hope it has been as much fun for you as it has been for me …
