Star Garnets are so unusual that they have only been found in two places in the world, Idaho in the USA and in India.
The garnet varieties that occasionally exhibit asterism are almandine and a mixture of almandine and Pyrope Garnet.
Star Garnets are usually opaque and deep brownish-red or reddish-black. The star effect is produced by presences of rutile. For the star effect to be shown, the rutile needles must have the correct position to reflect light in a pattern forming star.
The star effect in most star garnet’s is very subtle and needs the correct lighting to be seen clearly. The best lighting is direct sunlight. However, other light forms will also work. The best way to see the is by standing directly above the stone and looking straight down.
Garnet is the stone of health and contentment. Extracts negative energy and transmutes it to a beneficial state. Aids in sleep and dreaming and is very calming. Enhances ones internal fire, bringing creative powers to the stage of manifestation. Balances and stimulates the development and movement of Kundalini, allowing one to flow with the energies available.
