3mm Garnet (D) Round Designer Quality

Add bold colors to your jewelry with this round shaped dyed garnet. Garnet is known to reunite lovers after separation, for fertility and feminine life force. Garnet, pronounced as GAR-nit, is derived from the Latin word “granatum” due to its deep red and glossy color that resemble like the seeds of a pomegranate. This gemstone can vary from transparent to opaque purplish red to deep burgundy red and contains little to no inclusions. 

There is a saying that Hades gifted a pomegranate to Persephone before she left his domain to ensure a speedy and safe return. When she did return, the fruit transformed into a handful of the red gemstones. This 3mm garnet bead is center drilled for stringing purposes. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted items.
