Crystal of the Month

January Crystal of the Month Garnet

Crystal Meaning: 

It’s thought that the name comes from an old Latin word granum meaning grain which refers to the rounded shape of the garnet and the shape and colour are said to be reminiscent of the seeds of the pomegranate. Garnet was sacred to the Native Americans, the Aztecs and the Mayans.

Magical Use: 

Garnet is an energising crystal and it helps to move and circulate energy and to cleanse and re-energise the chakras. Garnet helps to spark the fire of imagination and creativity and helps to release any blockages in this area. It is said to be a very lucky stone, and is helpful for business ventures or for anyone working in a job where creativity is important.

Garnet is excellent for helping us to link with our life’s purpose helping us open to a higher awareness and to access information related to our past lives. Is also useful for dream work and is said to ward of nightmares.

Garnet is a great friendship stone, promoting both co-operation and personal freedom. It is a crystal of regeneration and it supports us in making life changes and is regarded as a stone of courage. It has a stabilising effect bringing order to all systems -- mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. Garnet is also said to help with the flow of energy.

Healing Use:

Garnet is said to be associated with Archangel Raphael who is the angel of healing and wholeness. As such Garnet is known as the stone of health. The stone is very useful for all blood related conditions, and benefits the circulation, heart, lungs and liver. It helps with anemic conditions as it helps with the absorption of iron and can be of benefit in reducing blood pressure, but of course as always its not to be used as a substitute for proper medical advice and treatment. It Is an energising and warming stone both emotionally and physically. Its good for balancing the hormones and has a special connection with the pituitary gland. Garnet also protects against toxins.

How to Use:

Garnet is a stone that is very often found set into jewellery and it’s a lovely stone to wear. It’s a stone that is robust enough to wear every day. It can also be picked up in tumbled form, and can be held in the hand or set on any area of the body you feel can benefit from it.

How to Cleanse and Recharge:

Garnets are quite a hardy stone and as such all forms of cleansing are suitable. So water cleansing, smudging, light of the full moon, sunshine and reiki cleansing are all suitable
