Garnet belongs to the group of silicates. Two families exist:
aluminous garnets, also called pyralspites, including pyrope, almandine and spessartine garnets, with intermediate varieties.
calcic garnets, also called ugrandites, including uvarovite, grossular and andradite garnets, with intermediate varieties.
The aluminous garnets are among my favorite stones.
Red garnet is an excellent grounding stone and enables me to be more focused on what surrounds me, especially my relatives and my environment. I am more in the moment and I leave less room for superficial things. Garnet brings joy, vitality, determination and stability, sublimates passionate love and helps to overcome obstacles.
Kunzite belongs to the group of silicates. It is a variety of triphane.
The properties of kunzite are according to me very similar to the ones of rose quartz. This stone soothes excessive emotions (fear, anger, etc.), and helps to take a step back from our relational problems (friendship/love/family), de-dramatize and put things into perspective.
Its relaxing effect also helps to increase our perspicacity and strengthen our reflexes.
The owner of the shop offers a wide choice of stones in different forms, as well as jewels (pendants and bracelets). I discovered her shop via her YouTube channel (of the same name), which is very complete on minerals.
