It presents in a variety of colors including pink, purple, yellow, orange, green, black and, most famously, red. Red garnet can be found in metamorphic rock in every continent, although the finest, most famous and highly prized stones come from Bohemia, in the Czech Republic. This deep red color and its roots in the Latin granatum (meaning seed-like) have linked garnets to pomegranate seeds and the ancient Greek legend of Persephone’s abduction by Hades to the underworld.
