Healing Properties of Garnet: The Passion Stone

How can Garnet help you?


Garnet helps to clear out negativity and/or emotional blockages to your heart. It energizes the whole body as it clears away stale emotions, allowing for feelings to flow more freely. It also helps you to connect more deeply to and to be in the present moment with your sensual body. It’s a stone that brings a positive mind, heat, light, and passion.


As it physically aligns the emotions, body, and chakras, Garnet acts as an anchor for deepening your spiritual practice. It is considered a protector of the spirit as well—protecting your spirit from negativity and instilling a deep peace.

What Is the Chakra for Garnet?

When you place a gemstone directly on a chakra it will amplify its healing results.

While Garnet is excellent for aligning and invigorating all the Chakras, it’s especially useful for the Root Chakra. The dark glow of a Garnet acts as a grounding force. A grounded or stabilized root Chakra means that we feel safe. When we feel safe we can be more in touch with our sacred selves and act and react from that place of security. Our Root Chakra is also the center of our creativity and sexuality. Garnet is a stone of amazing passion.
