💎 RHODOLITE GARNET LORE:
Rhodolite garnet is created when the minerals Almandine and Pyrope mix together over time. It gets its name from the Greek word 'Rhódon' which means rose, describing its unique pink-purple undertone that sets it apart from other red crystals. The refractive index for Rhodolite Garnet is very high, which is why it has a beautiful luster and shine when the light hits it. The word 'Garnet' also has a rich history, stemming from the Latin name for pomegranate 'Granatum', because of the resemblance the gemstone bears to the seeds of that fruit.
Legends and folklore place Garnet among the most ancient of talismans. Not only was it prized as an ornamental jewel, but its strong curative powers and protective energies made it invaluable.
Garnet is considered to be a lucky stone, for love, success, and for business relationships. It helps you let go of old behaviour patterns and boosts self-confidence. All Garnets honour Sekhmet, the Egyptian Goddess of War, and is the traditional birthstone of those born in January. It is the stone of those born under the zodiac sign of Aquarius and has been worn for centuries as a protective and powerful talisman. Rhodolite is also considered to be a wonderful stone for igniting passion and sensuality within oneself and in relationships, as well as being a wonderful gem for increasing energy, inspiration and positive thoughts.
