The name "garnet" comes from the Latin granatus, a grain possibly in reference to malum garanatum (pomegranate) a plant with red seeds similar in shape, size and color to some garnet crystals. An expert may understand "Garnet” as the denomination for a group of over ten different gemstones with a similar chemical structure. Although the color red is the one which occurs most frequently, as told, there are also Garnets showing different shades of green, pale to bright yellow, fiery orange and fine earth- and umbra-shades. Only blue is a color which is not truly available in Garnet. It is an unfortunate fact that very few people are aware of the realm of garnets and the colors they possess, as they are each quite beautiful in their own right.
