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.
