Spessartine Garnet is one of the most spectacular and powerful gems with a deep red colour. Its hardness, transparency, colour intensity, light reflection and regular external forms are simply amazing to the human eye. The majority of Garnets have hardness 7, but this specific Brazilian Garnet has a hardness 8.5 out of 10, and is denser and heavier than Rubies and Sapphires. Although it is very rare (much rarer than the Diamond), it is reasonably priced and much more affordable. Even larger natural specimens can be found at reasonable prices. This specific Spessartine Garnet was found at only one place in the world – Minas Gerais Brazil, however it is not mined anymore (the mine collapsed over 15 years ago). Spessartine Garnet is a foundation stone and every Crystals Energy enthusiast should have the opportunity to test its functioning at least once in his/her lifetime.
From the energy point of view, it is very strong, with a red aura expanding around it. Vibration sensitive people may feel its strong red density even before they touch it. It highly influences the first energy centre (the root chakra) which represents love and is the fundamental driving energy for the entire body. Its presence in the area of the HEART disperses very strong energy and a huge desire for physical movement. It also cures and relieves diseases and inflammations.
I had my first experiences with Spessartine when I got a severe feverish sinus infection before going on an expedition. Sinus problems are very painful and typically last for a long time. Before leaving, I charged and programmed a larger piece of Spessartine, put it under the pillow and slept with it for a few hours. When I woke up, my problems and pain were mostly resolved and were completely gone in the next 24 hours. On another occasion, I wore this same specimen for a few days and received so much energy from it that I had to release it each day by running, exercising, cycling or hiking in the mountains. Especially when I feel bad, or my body is tired, I always received an excess of energy and a strong urge for recreation.
Spessartine Garnet is particularly suitable for anaemic people, individuals with a lack of will due to depression and self-confinement, or for athletes who need an extra source of clean natural energy and the will to exercise. It cleanses blood, liver, spleen, lungs, heart, blood vessels, and the entire circulatory system. It is highly recommend for people who need basic motive energy, for a body that needs a fresh source of energy in order to be physically strong and to enhance the strength of the spirit in a healthy body by means of this beautiful ancient fire of transformation.
