Grossular Garnet (Grossularite) is a green variety of Garnet that originated in Siberia, named after the botanical word for gooseberry, “grossularia”, as the gem resembled this fruit. It may also be red, reddish-brown, orange, honey yellow, colorless or white. Tsavorite is also a Grossular Garnet, but it is the gemmy-green variety only found in Tsavo, Africa.
A stone of balance, Grossular Garnet helps keep emotions in check, while at the same time bringing in the voice of reason. It is a good crystal to help get back the fun in relationships that are often plagued by worrisome issues, such as finances, etc.
Physically, Grossular Garnet enhances the immune system, helps the heart and respiratory system, increases fertility and can aid in detoxification. Like other Garnets, Grossular Garnet can be used to improve bone marrow, alleviate arthritis and rheumatism, and assimilate Vitamin A.
