These lovely tumbled garnets from China can be incorporated in a medicine pouch, arranged in a crystal grid, or used as pocket stones! Though they've been tumble polished, some portions of the surface retain fissures which echo the original texture of the rough crystal.
Dimensions: Approximately 1" x 1"
Mineralogy: Garnet is not a single mineral, but several closely related minerals that come together in a variety of beautiful formations. Variations in the specific elements of the minerals help explain garnet's wide variety of colors, from its best known red hues to shades of green and even, in rare occurrences, blue.
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!
As with all of Mother Nature's creations, appearance will vary, but the item you receive will be similar in quality to the photos above.
