Garnet: Revered for its inner fire and as power as a protective talisman, a garnet was said to be used by Noah as a lamp on the bow of his famous ark. 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. An energizing stone of commitment, honesty and hope Garnet’s can help one realize and enjoy the pleasures of earthly incarnation. This includes enhancing sensuality, sexuality, and intimacy in a balanced fashion. As such, garnet is a stone of love and passion. It is the birthstone for January.

Pyrite: Believed to promote communication between the conscious and subconscious minds, the Inca used large slabs of polished pyrite as mirrors and believed that the stone held divine powers. Used in jewelry in ancient Greece and Rome, the name pyrite is derived from the Greek pyr, meaning “fire”, referring to the sparks made when pyrite strikes metal. Thus, pyrite is known as the Stone of Hidden Fire, and resonates with warming fire energy and spirit of boldness and assertive action. It is masculine stone by nature; a stone of action, vitality and will it taps into one’s abilities and potential and stimulates the flow of ideas, bringing confidence and the persistence to carry tasks through to completion. Also known as Fool’s Gold because miners mistook this mineral for gold during the California Gold Rush.
