Origin of the name :

the garnet is a stone that can be red, orange, brown, black or green. The best known and used in lithotherapy is red-brown garnet called almandine garnet. The name garnet comes from the Latin word "granatum" which means grains, and is reminiscent of the seeds of a pomegranate thanks to its color, or because of its rounded crystallized shape. 

Legends and popular beliefs:

From the period of ancient Egypt to the Middle Ages via ancient Rome, these fine stones then called "carbuncles" adorned the costumes of the greatest warriors. They were used in particular to bring strength and courage to the crusaders in order to enable them to face the worst enemies during the holy wars.

Garnet served as a talisman until it darkened, which represented a bad omen for its owner. It regains its brilliance once the danger has passed.

Purification and recharging: 

Not all stones can be cleaned in the same way. Some do not like the sun, others the water or the moon, etc. It is therefore important to respect the needs of each stone. 

For an effective purification of the garnet, we advise you to purify it as soon as you receive it. Indeed, even if we purify all the stones ourselves, they have been manipulated by other people before you. It is therefore important to purify them so that they deliver all their virtues to you. 

  • Water, sun, flower of life, or fumigation

Purification : 

Regarding the purification of grenat, we recommend that you purify it by placing it under running water for a few seconds while delivering an intention to it. We recommend that you take inspiration from its virtues. For example, you could give him the following intention: "give me the courage to face all the tests to achieve my goals". The purer the water, the more effective the purification will be. Be sure to dry your jewelry well so as not to damage it.

White sage and palo santo are also good ways to purify garnet and rid it of bad energies. Light your sacred grass then you can then pass it under this smoke with strong purifying powers. This gentle but effective technique can also be used to recharge your stones. 

Important : Never drink, store or use water that has been used to purify your stones. In addition, jewelry made of a material other than stones (wire, stainless steel, gold, silver, etc.) cannot be in contact with water for too long.


To recharge it, leave the garnet in the sun for a few hours. 

Reloading is also possible on a cluster of quartz or in an amethyst geode. For this method, leave your stone/jewel in your geode for at least a day.

The 3rd possible method to recharge a garnet stone is with sacred geometry. We advise you to use the high vibratory rates of flower of life, scallop shells... 

Reload frequency: 

the grenat is a stone bringing powerful virtues and is therefore easily discharged. To benefit from its virtues daily, we invite you to purify it and recharge it regularly.  

Purify your garnet once a week at least to clean it of negative energies and recharge it 2 to 3 times a week to bring it positive energies.

Tips :  

Avoid exposure to the moon and be sure to dry jewelry thoroughly after exposure to water.
