Garnet is among my favorite stones, I simply love its energy! It offers vitality, passion, physical endurance, protection, and a sense of well-being to all of the energy bodies. Average size is 3/4". It is tumbled but it is a hard, dense stone that doesn't polish out smooth for the most part. The natural terrain of it allows for the rich wine color to be most apparent. When fully polished it can appear almost black. I like to see that lovely red come out! Garnet grows in a rhombic dodecahedron or cubic pattern.
