Healing garnet:
Garnet has often been used to lift depression and to rid people of bad dreams. Garnet is said to encourage romance, love and passion. These gemstones were also considered to be powerful talismans, capable of illuminating the night and dispelling evil spirits.

Astrology garnet:
All garnet types can be worn as stones for Aquarius. Garnet is also the official Birthstone for January. In addition, it is also the 2nd marriage anniversary stone. Garnet is also considered the planetary stone for Mars, Mercury and Pluto. Although garnet is primarily associated with the root chakra, depending upon its color, it can also be useful for opening up other chakras as well. Hessonite is associated with Rahu, the moons ascending node, and it is believed that wearing hessonite will bring success, good fortune and longevity.

Hessonite Garnet:
Hessonite is a gem quality variety of grossular garnet, the calcium-aluminum silicate member of the garnet species. While most varieties of grossularite are green, hessonite is known for its characteristic honey-yellow to brown-red cinnamon color, though it can occur in other colors as well. Other types of grossular garnets include the more common green grossularite, chromium-rich tsavorite, the rare hydrogrossular garnet and the rare leuco garnet colorless.
Hessonite can be easily distinguished from other garnet types by its distinctive color and the presence of manganese. Hessonite garnet also has a lower specific gravity compared to other garnet types. Under magnification, hessonite exhibits undulating and contorted areas of lesser transparency, which can often help identify and distinguish hessonite from other similar colored gemstones. Like other garnets, hessonite has a distinct cubic crystal structure. The rhombic dodecahedral faces, which appear like twelve-sided dice, are a hallmark of garnet gemstones. Other distinguishing aspects include lack of cleavage, which combine with its color, hardness and exceptionally high refractive index, to make hessonite garnet almost unmistakable.
