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. It teaches us that to respect and protect ourselves is a tremendous act of true love! Every bit as important as the love we give to others. 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. Hessonite Garnet encourages us to explore the idea of whether we can love unconditionally, without necessarily giving unconditional access to our time, energy and personal life. Most of all, Hessonite Garnet helps us to figure out what works, what blesses, and what protects all parties.
