All species of garnets possess similar physical properties and crystal forms, but differ in chemical composition.

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.
