The deep red of these garnet beads resembles pomegranate juice and like all garnets have a nice solid feel to them. They would look great in combination with Carnelian or Jasper.

Mineralogy: Garnet is not a single mineral, but a group of closely related silicate minerals with the same structure. Specific elemental variations among members of the garnet mineral group help explain garnet's wide variety of colors, from its best known red and violet hues to shades of brown, green, and orange and even, in rare occurrences, blue and pink.
Metaphysical Properties: Garnet is said to monitor and adjust the flow of energy and to prevent bad dreams. Wearing garnet beads to the workplace and storing them close to your bedside sound like great ways to test this appealing theory for yourself!
