This naturally faceted deep wine colored Garnet Small Fine Garnet Nugget has an invigorating energy that resonates with vibrations of Life Force & Good Health. Garnet has a reputation for assisting in rapid tranformation & spiritual growth. This is a perfect stone to carry in your pocket, to use in meditation, to place in a medicine bag, to bury in the ground for healing of your home or community or to work with on a client or to simply place in a room or on your altar to admire its potent energy signature.
This natural garnet from India is of a higher grade than our other "Garnet Natural Nugget" (from China) which is why it is the same price even though it's a bit smaller, but brighter. It also has a greater sheen on the surface of each facet.
Garnets have been used for millennia in shamanistic healing and spiritual traditions across the globe, by Native American Indians, Aztecs, Mayans, and African medicine men and healers. Garnet is also one of the stones found in the breastplate of the Israeli High Priest in the Old Testament.
Garnets typically are used by spiritual healers to transmute negative energy or stuck energy within a sick person into healthy energy, and to restore the proper flow of life force energy throughout the individual's body.
The red color of the garnet indicates its affinity with the root chakra, normally associated with the color red in the Western chakra system, and with the second chakra, normally associated with the color orange in the Western system. In addition, this garnet works to energize the "hara" center, located about two fingers width below the navel, which is the location where the individual's "chi", "prana" or universal life force energy is stored.
The garnet works to equilibrate, cleanse and energize the root chakra and the second chakra, grounding the bearer, strengthening the bearer's self-confidence and sense of physical security, enhancing the sexual energy, the flow of kundalini, and the store of universal life force energy in the physical body.
This crystal has been cleaned and charged with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energetic attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing so it will continue to channel and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It has also been cleaned and charged with the natural energy of sunlight. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
