In the last few years, as a genealogy researcher, I have come to understand and be amazed at the significance of ones birth month and date and how it relates and influences ones life. Keep in mind, I have 'Garnet Gypsy' blood running through my veins, and a Crystal Ball setting on top of my Linda Goodman Sun Signs book.
As soon as I read the 'Healing' properties of Garnets, I donned just about every piece of garnet jewelry I own. Garnets are known as a 'stone of health' and 'Crystal Healing' specialists say it can assist in healing acid reflux (GERD), assimilate vitamins and minerals, promote rapid general healing, regeneration and a host of other health related issues. Yay for Crystals and a Crystal Ball.
Garnets have been used as gemstones and in jewelry for millennia. When worn as jewelry, garnets give the wearer a sense of self esteem. Many opaque garnets are used extensively in industry as abrasives, flitration, cutting steel and in place of silica sand for sandblasting.
The Garnet is known as a stone of purity and truth as well as a symbol of love and compassion. It enhances ones sense of security and spiritual awareness. The world's largest supply of garnets is the continent of Africa. The largest single garnet ever found measured nearly one hundred feet across and was found in Central Australia. Other sources for garnet include India, Soviet Union, Brazil and the US.
