Andradite is a species of garnet and includes three varieties: Melanite (Black), Demantoid (Vivid Green) and Topazolite (Yellow Green). Andradite occurs in skarns developed in contact metamorphosed limestones or calcic igneous rocks; in chlorite schists and serpentinites and in alkalic igneous rocks. The varieties, Demantoid and Topazolite are rare and when of sufficiently high quality they may be cut into gems. New Age Therapists say Andradite brings strength, stability and balance, promoting
self-confidence and self-esteem. Builds will power.
It is said to protect the owner from seduction.
Zodiac: Aquarius
