Stone of Relaxation

Almandine is a species of garnet. Large deposits of fine almandine garnets were found, some years ago, in Northern Territory, Australia, and were at first taken for rubies and thus they were known in trade for some time afterwards as Australian rubies. New Age Therapists say Almandine brings a sense of relaxation allowing one to ‘chill out’. Almandine is also a stone of devotion and commitment and enhances creativity. Ancient people thought that when a wise man dreamed about almandine garnets, he would soon discover a solution to all of the mysteries of life.
