Garnet

The rich dark red gemstone aptly named after the seeds of the luscious pomegranate fruit. Garnets have been symbolically associated with life forces, the heart and blood, and have been considered a symbol for LOVE, FRIENDSHIP & PASSION. The crusaders used garnet stones as PROTECTION against wounds and accidents during their journeys. Mary Queen of Scots and the Russian Czarinas were all famous for wearing garnets.
