The Metaphysical Meaning of Garnet

Garnet... the seed of strength for Warriors - Dragon-Heart

Garnet Meaning:

Used in jewelry since Ancient times, most of us know Garnets as the deep blood-red gem found in every jewelry store. But Garnet is in a Silicate family of about 10 related stones whose colors range from pale to deep reds and oranges to yellows and even greens.

The name comes form the Latin "granum" which means grain or seed for they are like little seeds planted in the matrix stone. Their crystal form gives a very high refraction of light giving Garnets their much loved sparkle and is the basis of the lore of Garnet Lanterns.
It is said that Garnets will glow with so much light that they were used as lantern glass and were used to light up the night!

Used as a Soldiers Stone, it gives fortitude and wisdom in battle and strength of heart and body.

Also, it helps women to strengthen between menstrual cycles, Moon-times.
