The blood-red garnet, which sometimes appears in shades of purple, is strongly tied to the element of fire and the goddess Persephone. Garnets are related to the root chakra, and can be used in healing reproductive disorders and regulation of the menstrual cycle. Magically, the garnet is connected to the mysteries of women’s bodies, as well as moon magic. Use garnets in rites that balance the spiritual with the physical. Of note, in some magical traditions, it is beleived that a garnet obtained through deceptive means will bring a curse upon the person who possesses it, until returned to its rightful owner.
