Garnet is more varied and powerful than you might expect!
We’ve heard of Garnet, but how many varieties of this particular stone are you familiar with? There are actually at least 20 different varieties! They all share a common crystal structure (identified as rhombic) but vary in chemical composition which allows this gemstone to show itself in a multitude of colors.
Red Garnet is the birthstone for January. It channels energy to, and of, the First Chakra, Muladhara, which is our Root Chakra at the base of the spine. This Chakra establishes the deep connections to our physical body, the environment, and the Earth. This is where we find security and our instinct to survive.
Garnet is a balancing & strengthening gemstone. No matter who we are and how far we’ve come in life, we need to be reminded that we are safe and meant to be exactly where we find ourselves at this very moment…. and if we feel unsafe, we can change that feeling. Try it!
