💎 HESSONITE GARNET LORE:
Hessonite Garnet is a beautiful semi-precious gemstone that is part of the Grossular Garnet family. The name grossular is derived from the botanical name for the gooseberry, 'Grossularia', and includes other, lesser-known types of Garnet (green or clear) that are also higher in calcium and aluminum than the dark red gems we often think of when we hear the word Garnet. Grossular Garnets also have a high refractive index, displaying excellent brilliance and shimmer beautifully in the light.
Hessonite Garnet gets its beautiful burnt orange hue from the presence of iron and manganese within the stone. It is often also referred to as the 'Cinnamon Stone', as the first miners who came across it in Sri Lanka believed it to closely resemble the colour of cinnamon oil. It is deeply rooted in Indian mythology, believed to counter the evil influences of the legendary Rahu, an immortal head of a snake that swallows the sun or the moon causing eclipses.
Today, Hessonite Garnet is believed to offer its wearer happiness, good health, self-confidence and peace. It is thought to be a wonderful protection stone, aiding with travelling and guarding against negative energy, and is also regarded as being a gemstone that can bring wealth and success to whoever wears it.
