*Garnet--the primary birthstone for January*
This is a mini sized, oval shaped faceted natural garnet pendant set in sterling silver! It would look beautiful on a sterling silver chain, or one of our signature faceted strands. (All pendants are sold separately—you may purchase a chain in Sterling Silver Chains, and faceted strands can be found in Necklaces & Sets.) Contact us to see more of our Garnet Jewelry collection.
Dimensions: 0.75” x 0.25” (19mm x 7mm)
PHYSICAL: Garnet is a complex group of closely related minerals, which vary in chemical and physical properties from each other. Almandine, seen here, is the most common variety in both specimens and jewelry. Garnet naturally forms cubes, octahedra, and dodecahedra, though the shape here has been cut by man.
METAPHYSICAL/CULTURAL: Almandine Garnet is associated with grounding, vitality, health, and physical strength. Garnet is connected to the Root Chakra (1st) and the earth element.
Care for gemstones in sterling silver jewelry:
As with all natural stones set in silver, these jewelry pieces should be removed when taking a shower, swimming, or entering a hot springs. Water (especially hot water) can damage natural materials and even cause settings to fail. This is especially true with gemstone rings!
*Though many gems and minerals have historical and cultural associations with healing properties, these items are sold for wear in jewelry, display, study, and collector interest only.
