Healing Garnet Rock Definition
Garnet’s name comes from the old English term “Gernet” which refers to the color “Dark-red”. The word may be derived from how garnet stones resemble pomegranate seeds, which are a rich red and look like precious jewels. Late Antique Romans liked to inlay them in gold, and the stone was also popular in Greece and with the Anglo Saxons.
The gem is considered January’s birthstone in the United States. In the Zodiac, they represent Aquarius, the constellation of a water carrier in the sky that was carried away by the Greek God Zeus. People with this sign are generally friendly and honest while staying loyal in the toughest of times.
