Garnet is a rich, deep-red crystal that gets it’s name from 14th century Middle English gernet which literally means ‘dark red’. Our garnet beads range in colour from a rich, vibrant red to almost black. Generally, the smaller beads are more red while as you get larger, the colour gets darker. This is for two reasons; firstly, the more vibrant-red and transparent the garnet, the more expensive (and rare) it is, so small pieces are more likely then larger pieces, and secondly, as the bead gets larger, less light is able to enter the stone to enable the colour to shine.
