Red Garnet

Red Garnet Rough Cut

Garnet is the largest of the gem material families. Owing to it granular form and often associated colors, the term ‘garnet’ is derived from the latin terms for ‘grain’ and the fruit ‘pomegranate’. Red Garnet is drawn from either Pyrope or Almandine Garnets. Blossomjewels chooses its Red Garnet by aiming for the deepest of ‘red colors’ resembling red wine, trying to avoid overly brown or purple tones. On this basis Blossomjewels typically uses Almandine as its source of Red Garnet. This being said Blossomjewels also has examples of Red Garnet that are more Cola, or even Toffee like in color. As with any natural gem material, securing consistent color tones of material is a challange and customers should always carefully view the color of the item as it appears listed on the store.

Garnet is the birthstone for the month of January, and can be used as a wedding anniversary stone to celebrate 2 or 6 years of marriage.

Garnet is the Zodiac stone for Capricorn and is thought to convey the mythical trait of ‘calm’.
