This is a necklace made from fine smooth drops of Garnet.
The colour is dark red to purple and orange in colour with some interesting inclusions if you look closer.
They are so shiny and awesome to look at that I decided to have pictures of different lighting
conditions in the image gallery for this necklace.
If you zoom in you will see the effect that light has on garnet.
The necklace has a Sterling Silver clasp and is 45cm long.
The name Garnet stems from its resemblance to the seeds of the fleshy seeds of the pomegranate fruit,
which the nuggets on this necklace are also similar to in shape.
In other languages Garnet is called Granat, the same name as the fruit.
Slices of garnet have been used in windows in churches and temples,
and according to the legend, Noah has suspended a garnet in the ark in order to disperse light.
Garnet is said to cure melancholy and to warm the heart.
It also symbolises vitality in all its forms, such as strength and fertility.
Garnet is believed to have the power to bring success in business, fame and popularity, providing protection and bringing spiritual awareness.
Its powers include healing, strength, and it is often worn to relieve skin inflammations.
It also regulates the heart and blood flow and aid in curing depression.
It is also the gem to be given on a 2nd and 6th Wedding Anniversary.
Garnet is January's birthstone.
