Garnet unites the energy of scarlet and red with the more muted, earthy overtones of brown. It is intimately tied to the Earth, and is a talisman of protection and unyielding strength, increasing willpower and resistance to all things negative. Associated with the First Chakra, it is a stone of physical love and relationships, and a spiritual stone of psychic protection.
The name Garnet is derived from the Latin name Granatum, a pomegranate, because of the resemblance the granular varieties of Garnet bears to the seeds of that fruit. Garnets were used in the former Czechoslovakia as far back as the Bronze Age, and in Egypt more than five thousand years ago. They were used in Sumeria around 2100 B.C. and in Sweden between 1000 and 2000 B.C. They were also popular in ancient Greek and Roman civilisations. In Europe during the Middle Ages, Garnet was used to enhance truth, faith and constancy, and to dispel melancholy. Garnet is said to have been one of the twelve stones in the Breastplate of the High Priest, and has been used as a sacred stone by the Native American Indians, the South American Indians, the Aztecs, the African tribal elders, and the Mayans.
The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolises change. Change in the perspective of self realisation; the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.
