The use of Garnet in jewelry dates back to the dawn of civilization. Around the globe ancient societies believed garnet was the gem of fire and illumination.
Legend has it that Noah hung garnets to light the way of the ark as well as illuminate the interior.
Another legend tells of an elderly woman who found an injured bird in her path. She took the bird home and nursed it back to health. One day the bird flew away and the woman thought she would never see the bird again. But the bird did come back with a red gem as a gift of thanks. The woman placed it by her bed that night, and awoke later to find the garnet glowing as bright as any torch.
Garnet has been used by the Aztecs, Mayans, and many other Native American tribes, as well as some African tribes because it is believed to increase the power of fire.
