ALMANDINE GARNET is an iron aluminum silicate with a hardness of 7.5. Its name is derived from the town of Almandine in Asia Minor. It is found in Sri Lanka, India, Afghanistan, Brazil, Austria and the Czech Republic. Its color ranges from orange-red to purplish red.
Almandine Garnet is a stone of the ancient times in human history, when people were more intimately connected to the Earth, and when life was more physically demanding.
It can vibrationally enhance one’s vitality and endurance. It activates and strengthens the base chakra, our portal of connection to the physical world. It is excellent for those who are a bit ungrounded, or who lack energy.
This is also a stone of tangible truth. If one tends to build “ castles in the air,” Almandine Garnet can assist one in manifesting a realistic version of them here on Earth. Almandine Garnet is also a stone of psychic protection. Its relatively dense energies keep one strongly connected to the body, and when one is rooted in this way, it is more difficult for negative energies or entities to attach themselves.
As a stone of the first chakra, Almandine Garnet can help arouse the energies of kundalini. For this, Tibetan Tektite can be a helpful ally. Once stimulated, the kundalini energies are stabilized and kept more grounded by Almandine Garnet’ s steady, slow vibrations. If one wishes additional grounding and protection, one is advised to combine Almandine Garnet with Black Andradite Garnet.
