Stone: Kashgar Garnet
Fabrication Type: Handcrafted
Material: Sterling Silver
Garnets are a group of silicate minerals that have been used since the Bronze Age as gemstones and abrasives. All species of garnets possess similar physical properties and crystal forms, but differ in chemical composition. Garnets are rated between 6.5 and 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Garnets are thought to open the heart's expressions of love, passion and sensuality.
Kashgar Garnet comes from the city of Kashgar which is the westernmost city of China. The properties of this stone are the same as other garnet but because of its green nature, it is thought to have more emphasis on the healing properties. It is associated with the root chakra and is said to re-energize, regenerate, and revitalize the person energetically and physically.
