Garnet

Mohs Hardness: 6.5 to 7.5

Colour: Dark red

The name “garnet” comes from the Latin word “Garanatus,” meaning “seedlike,” in reference to a pomegranate, because of this association the stone has come to stand for the safe return of a friend or loved one. Garnets were said to protect travellers on their journeys and were often exchanged between friends as tokens that they would meet again. Garnet is also related to self-empowerment’’
