This gorgeous, energetically powerful Spessartine Garnet Crowned Waterdrop Pendant, designed by our friend, AGTA Fashion Forward award winning gemologist and jewelry designer Brian Cook, , is filled with tiny all natural, untreated, unheated Spessartine Garnet gemstones, creating a one-of-a-kind collector's item that is also a Lightworker's power tool. Use it with either gold or silver or even leather to wear around your neck.
This lovingly hand-crafted gemstone pendant was formed from a water-clear Brazilian quartz crystal which was drilled and filled with gorgeous fiery orange-red Spessartine garnet gemstone chips suspended in jojoba oil, then capped with natural quartz. Depending on how you view the stone, the chips can appear magnified as you can see in the photos below.
Some of our products are combinations of various crystals, gems, metals and other substances. None of these combination products has been under compression at any stage in its creation [but they are fitted together naturally].
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Spessartine Garnet
Spessartine garnets are vitreous, translucent hexocatahedral gemstones with a hardness rated significantly above quartz crystal, characterized by the presence of aluminum and manganese, which imparts their striking reddish orange color. 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.

The garnet derives its name from the pomegranate seed. Pomegranate is called punica granatum in Latin.

Garnets were traditionally considered stones of protection in both the Middle East and European spiritual traditions, used to ward off demons and evil environmental influences, and to protect warriors in battle. Garnets were also used as stones of sexual healing, to promote passionate connection between loving partners.
Most of all, garnets are the quintessential stone of prosperity, used to manifest abundant wealth and income for millennia in cultures around the world. All these properties are connected to the garnet's connection to the root chakra, which is colored red in the Western chakra system, and which governs issues of survival, adequate prosperity to sustain life, and sexual energy.
The root chakra is the site of the coiled kundalini energy which is the fountainhead of all spiritual experiences, and thus the garnet is also thought to awaken the kundalini energy which normally lies dormant in human beings until awakened by a spiritual teacher or by intense spiritual experience of some kind.
Orange spessartine garnets also energize the second, sacral solar plexus chakra, the chakra of sexual energy, creativity and procreation.
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.
Jane and I have used garnets in Reiki treatments on ourselves and with clients, and have found that this is one of the most powerful gemstones we have ever used to enhance the flow of universal life force energy, "chi", or "prana" in the body.
