Almandine Garnet
Energy Vibrations

These rough Almandine Garnets look black at first glance, but hold them up to the light and they glow red. Normally this supplier polishes all their stones, but occasionally they'll set aside a few kilos of rough. These would be a great addition to any spell related to love and passion. They would also be a good choice for a new business or a bright beginning.

Ethically Sourced

Almandine Garnet from India

This Almandine Garnet comes from artisanal miners in Odisha, India.  Artisanal mining for garnets typically has a low environmental impact and is relatively low risk for miners.

This lapidary hand-polishes stones in Mumbai, India. It is a woman-owned and family-run business. Factory workers are paid fairly. The Lapidary is also an exporter that sells at gem shows in the United States and Japan.

I first met this source at the 2014 Tucson Gem Show. It was my first buying trip for my own store and I was nervous. Most lapidary owners were brisk and impatient with my questions, especially when I asked about the mines and the supply chains. But one man stood out to me as particularly patient and kind. He had been a wholeseller for over twenty years, yet he was happy to meet someone brand-new to the industry.

He took time to talk to me about the stones. They came from his home country of India and he was able to tell me exactly which state or territory each one came from and some of the conditions at the individual mines. When I told him that I wanted to source ethically, he said that it would be difficult, but that it was a worthwhile challenge. He made me feel like I could succeed, both at ethical sourcing and at being a business owner. I looked forward to a long business relationship with him. Sadly, he died suddenly in 2016.

I stayed in touch with his family and in 2017 met his wife, teenage daughter, and his father. This three-generation family has picked up the pieces and learned how to run the business. His wife had never worked before, but she gracefully stepped into her new role as a business owner. Her father-in-law offers practical and moral support, but makes sure that everyone knows that SHE is the boss and that checks should be written directly to her. The family continues to be supportive of my efforts to ethically source. More than any other lapidary, they are willing to speak openly with me about the difficult parts of the industry. They have invited me to visit them in India, to visit the mines and their lapidary. The daughter is now a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) Graduate and is interested in reiki and other healing modalities. As she has grown up, she has become increasingly concerned about ethical issues.

Almandine Garnet Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published July 2014  •  Updated February 2024  •  Read Time: 7 minutes
Almandine Garnet is the most common variety of Garnet and the birthstone for the month of January.  While other varieties come in a range of colors, Almandine are always a deep red or reddish-purple color, that is typically much darker than Ruby and other red jewels.  Garnet’s name is from the Latin word for seed, a reference to pomegranate because garnets are often found clustered together just like pomegranate seeds. Almandine Garnet has a wonderful energy that is both passionate and peaceful, a curious balance that can teach us a unique kind of freedom.  It invites us to follow our heart’s desires, while also be practical and pragmatic.
