Garnet has a deep history with connections to both Greek Mythology and the Bible. Its often blood-red color has strong sexual connections that can help you both heal from sexual trauma and embrace your own sexual nature by removing inhibitions. It can also be very useful in manifestation as it helps you determine the steps you need to take to make your dreams a reality. It is a stone of protection and energy, bringing courage and hope as it balances energy to bring peace and intensity as needed.

Most people think of red when they think of Garnet, but it is available in other colors as well, and the other colors can align with different energies and chakras.
