At the time of the Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder (23 - 79), garnets were called carbuncles. In Sumer, in ancient Egypt, in Greece, as in Rome, garnets were often chiseled to represent animals or faces.
The Vikings, meanwhile, used garnets during funeral ceremonies, adorned with the ability to guide the dead to their paradise, Valhalla. The Museum of National Antiquities of Saint-Germain-en-Laye shelters magnificent Merovingian jewels (5th - middle of the 8th century) including garnets. In India, the garnet constituted an amulet supposed to protect from poison and the Plague, while the Crusaders of the 12th and 13th century appear the garnet of virtue of Faith and value in combat.
In the 18th century, European courtiers liked to adorn themselves with Bohemian garnets. In remote areas of northern Pakistan, the Hunza warriors defended themselves from the British in 1891 by loading their rifles with garnet bullets, believing that their blood-red color gave them an even more deadly character ... But the Garnet remains this magnificent gem, which the Catalan country has produced since the 17th century, and transformed into sumptuous jewelry.
A fine stone with many virtues, of truth, of fidelity, of protection, the Garnet is a sure value which illuminates the one who wears it.
