Hessonite Garnet Meaning and Healing Properties

Hessonite Garnet, also known as Cinnamon Stone, is a variety of Grossular Garnet colored by trace amounts of iron. Grossular Garnet is typically green but can occur in every color except blue. It's named after the Greek word "hesson" meaning "inferior" because of its lower hardness and density than most other Garnet varieties. Hessonite Garnet is typically found in Sri Lanka, India, Brazil, and Tanzania as well as other places across the globe.

Humans have been enchanted with Garnets for more than 5,000 years, dating back to the Bronze Age. Garnets are a large group of rock-forming silicate minerals. They are found all over the world in metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary rocks. Most Garnets form in volcanic environments when aluminum-rich sedimentary rocks like shale are subject to intense heat and pressure. The Garnet group consists of several different species including: Almandine, Andradite, Grossular, Pyrope, Spessartine and Uvarovite. 

Garnet is the modern & traditional January birthstone and is the second anniversary stone. Garnet is derived from the Greek word “granatum” after its striking resemblance to the seeds in a pomegranate. Much of what has been recorded in history refers to red Garnets because they are the most common. Today, gem lovers have a beautiful color array to select from!

According to Ayurveda, a natural system of medicine, originated in India more than 3,000 years ago, Hessonite Garnet has profound healing properties and it balances the energies associated with Rahu. It enhances focus, concentration, and intellectual abilities. Hessonite Garnet promotes success, abundance, and protection against negative energy. Its abundant energy has been beloved by numerous cultures around the globe. Hessonite Garnet helps you attract new streams of income and build long-term wealth. In Vedic Astrology, wearing a two carat or larger Hessonite Garnet is believed to attract wealth and success. Hessonite Garnet is particularly lucky for entrepreneurs and those who like to travel.
