Anyone who loves what is pure and natural will be fired with enthusiasm by the brilliance of the garnet stone. Today, garnets are sourced from Africa, India, Russia and Central and South America in many more colours than the classical deep red. Modern shades include greens, pale to intense yellows, fiery orange, violet-reds and more. Garnet stone has excellent hardness and wearing qualities, though you need to guard it from sharp knocks or high heat. Garnet stone's high refractive index means a high degree of light scattering within the garnet crystal and thus the garnet's great brilliance.
Garnet jewellery has been used by Man as a talisman for thousands of years. Check out some historical garnet meaning.
