Vibrant extremely clean, Ruby Red, Malaya Garnet from Tanzania. This bright color will leave you in awe! Loads of brilliance. Custom cut by Linda.

The garnet has a long history of use as a medicine stone and was used for healing blood and lung diseases. European folklore gave the garnet its reputation as an arthritis pain reliever and a depression alleviator. The garnet is said to block bad dreams. The sensual red stone also promotes passionate attraction. On the more spiritual side, wearing the garnet increases imagination and provides inspiration during moments of reflection.

It was said that Noah guided the ark by the light of a garnet lantern during the rain and darkness of the deluge. The stone was later used by travelers as a charm to ward off accidents and it was worn by the crusaders as an aid to safely find their way home. In Eastern Europe, garnets were worn to guard against vampires. In the 18th and 19th centuries, perfectly transparent garnet became the height of jewelry fashion.
