Or is there a middle ground that could work better? Where exactly should she draw the line? These are difficult and very lonely questions to ask.

Their Stone

Hessonite Garnet is a stone of love and courage. It helps us to explore difficult questions about love and to discover new ways of being.

Hessonite Garnet comforts us when we feel alone in the world. It promises us that this is just a brief moment in our lives and many things can change as time goes on.

Most of all, Hessonite Garnet helps us to figure out what works, what blesses, and what protects all parties.
