Garnet is not in fact just one gemstone but a group of similar minerals occurring in a variety of colors. The deep red varieties are common and widespread and found in metamorphic rock on all continents. The types of garnet used in jewelry are andradite, almandine, grossular, spessartine and pyrope.

The word garnet is derived from words meaning ‘deep red’ and ‘seed’, possibly linked to the crystal’s similarity in shape and color to red pomegranate seeds.
