More About Garnet:

Garnet refers to a whole family of stones that usually range in color from red to burgundy to black. There are even some with more of a cinnamon color, and other variations besides. Since it’s a very imprecise term, we’ve described and pictured a number of minerals that go by the name “garnet” below.

Garnet Lore:

The word “garnet” comes from the same root as the word “pomegranate”: granum, which is Latin for seed. But if you look at a handful of these small, regularly-shaped gems, they do look a bit like pomegranate seeds. The red of garnet is so intense that this stone has often been associated with drops of blood, and this is reflected in various stories from all over the world. For example, a myth from India says that when the demon Vala was slain, his finger- and toenails were scattered all over the world as garnets. There are also legends about its brightness, claiming that garnet’s internal light glows bright enough to light up a room. In fact, the Koran says that the fourth heaven is filled with garnets that bathe it in warm light.

About the word “carbuncle,” which often refers to garnet: Geology may be slow, but the names of crystals change a lot — so much so that it’s confusing to read older texts about crystals because it’s hard to know what stone they actually refer to. For example, “carbuncles” might actually mean rubies, sapphires, or even diamonds — though most often, a carbuncle is a garnet. But those old references turn up some pretty weird stories, too.

A German botanist from New Guinea turned up this one:

The queen of the Island of Amboin left her baby in a hammock while she worked. (Amboin’s small, so being queen didn’t have many perks.) When she came back, she was horrified to see a snake dangling over his hammock, and a bright spot on the boy the color of blood. She ran to the hammock, hoping to kill the snake that she believed had killed her baby. Instead of blood, she found that the red she’d seen was actually a carbuncle the snake had dropped on the baby. The grateful queen cared for the lucky snake for the rest of its life. As for the little prince, his stone shone so bright, he used it as a nightlight. When he grew up, he presented it to the King of Siam and became a favorite of that powerful ruler.

Some of the varieties:

An amazing variety of garnets (clockwise from top): black andradite garnet, green grossular garnet, red pyrope garnet, spessartine garnet (tumbled), spessartine (raw cluster), garnet in limestone matrix, and hessonite.

Care and safety: Since many forms of garnet contain aluminum, it should not be used in crystal elixirs.

    I absolutely love this gemstone for all its benefits and it’s range of colors.
    However, with so many variations of the Carbuncle stone, adding the pyrope garnet, my favorite is the Beckily Garnet.
    Thank you so much for enlightening me on the stories and bright light of my favorite Birthstone.
    If I have been ignorant to any insights and/or solicitations, I gracefully apologize.

    I looked up the common origins for red pyrope garnet on gem dat.org and saw that it’s found in Visalia, CA and Alaska was not mentioned as a USA source.

    1. Lauren Love & Light Support on August 10, 2017 at 7:03 pm

      Hi Catherine! Thanks so much for your comment- MinDat is a helpful source but is not always conclusive which may be why Alaska was not mentioned there 🙂 Crystal blessings!
