Garnet comes in a variety of colours, red, green, yellow, orange, brown, pink, purple, gray and black. The dark red gemstone grounds us into the moment, calming overactive minds and anxiety. Used as a protective talisman against negative energy. Associated with the Heart and the Root Chakras, it is considered a love magnet.
Garnet is beneficial in awaking the kundalini energy, a hidden force holding all human potential in your body. It is an energizing stone, bestowing passion and determination to accomplish your goals. Red Garnet overflows with a life force energy (Qi), that helps your blood flow as well as circulation of other fluids in the body and the alignment of the spine. Garnet revitalises, purifies and balances energy. It is said to relieve emotional conflict, activate and strengthen survival instincts, bring courage and hope.
Astrophyllite is a wonderful companion for astral travel, out of body journeys, and dream-time, as it helps to protect and guide us. Astrophyllite increases sensitivity of touch and perception, which makes it an excellent tool for those who are working in the alternative healing fields such as massage, acupressure, or Reiki.
Astrophyllite activates, charges, and aligns all seven Chakras of the body. The complex structure and flashing reflection of Astrophyllite resonate with its deeper meaning: to shine a light on the mirror of consciousness, to illuminate the true self.
Red Garnet in Astrophyllite is also a great manifesting stone, to help us see where we are always abundant and can create our dreams.
