Demantoid Garnet is a rare variety of Andradite Garnet that is a transparent green and, in gemstone form, is highly lustrous. It is also called the Star of Garnets because its name means “diamond-like”, alluding to its wonderful brilliance. Demantoid Garnet is the main gem form of Andradite and considered to be one of the most valuable forms of Garnet. Colors range from a yellowish green to brownish green with a yellow tint, to the bright emerald green that is very rare.
Working with the Heart chakra, Demantoid Garnet may help to remove obstacles that may come in the way of love. It is a wonderful crystal for married couples who also work together, to keep the cohesiveness in the relationship. This variety of Garnet is a pledge stone, used to let your partner know that nothing will come between the love you share with each other.
Physically, Demantoid Garnet helps with eyesight, blocked arteries, the immune system, and the respiratory system (especially illnesses such as bronchitis and pneumonia). Like other Garnets, Demantoid Garnet can be used to improve bone marrow, alleviate arthritis and rheumatism, and assimilate Vitamin A.
