Garnet is a gemstone most commonly known to be red, but in fact it is found in a variety of colors. Most, but not all Garnets are varieties of aluminum silicates. Their hardness varies from 6.5 to 7.5. Their crystal systems can be isometric, rhombic, dodecahedron and/or icositetrahedron. Some types of Garnets have been known and used for thousands of years, while others, like Tsavorite, a Grossular Garnet, were discovered only decades ago.
The word Garnet is derived from the Latin word granatum, which meant 'pomegranate,' a reference to the stone's similarity in form and color to a pomegranate seed. Garnets were used in the former Czechoslovakia as far back as the Bronze Age, and in Egypt more than five thousand years ago. They were used in Sumeria around 2100 B.C. and in Sweden between 1000 and 2000 B.C. They were also popular in ancient Greek and Roman civilizations. Aztec and other native American peoples used Garnets in ornamental objects as well. In Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, there was a major stone-cutting and jewelry-making industry centered around the native red Garnets, which began in the early 1500s and still exists today.
According to the Talmud, the only light on Noah's ark was provided by a large Garnet. In Europe during the Middle Ages, Garnet was said to enhance truth, faith and constancy, and to dispel melancholy. It was viewed in some quarters as a remedy for hemorrhage and a protection from wounds.
ROBERT SIMMONS Garnets are tools for making the products of creative imagination manifest in the three-dimensional world. The various kinds of Garnet are keyed to different types and levels of manifestation, but all are good for grounding one's dreams and desires in the physical domain.
