Black Garnet ~ Earth Magick, Mysticism, Creative Vitality & Rooted Embodiment
While in the crystal flow here after our lovely Crystal Magick workshop yesterday, I thought I’d share a little about a newer addition to my now much smaller, but very focused crystal family here.
She’s a Black Garnet from Russia.
Small, but mighty.
And loving the feel of her energy.
Feels like she is supporting me to work with the deep mystery of things in a magickal way while also helping to strip down to the most vulnerable truth within that releases energy to move through me with greater flow.
This helps with creative inspiration for sure! Not to mention greater life force vitality.
I feel she has a portal that perfectly fits under the pad of my thumb when I hold her – a portal to the inner realm and other worlds where I can journey further and shine a light on more things needing to be revealed, as well as retrieve and reclaim parts of myself.
This all feels perfect for the energy that I am and have been working with, along with my continued desire and need for inward focus.
I felt guided to take her along on our 8 mile hike this past Saturday above the coastline across from Crystal Cove beach.
I held her in my hand throughout the hike and with the wild winds of change that accompanied the whole journey, I was feeling a powerful shamanic energy from her that is very connected to the Earth and elements.
It’s hard to tell in the photo, but she sparkles quite a bit and is much like a little black star-dusted flower.
Her size making her fit for a Faery – one who walks the edge of different worlds.
I love that she comes from Russia, as my name, Tania, has Russian origins (although I am not myself Russian – at least that I am aware of) and means Faery Queen. 🙂
This particular Black Garnet is also known as Melanite, which is a type of Andradite Black Garnet.
Metaphysically speaking, Melanite is known to have a very strong Earth star chakra connection, which helps with actualizing and manifesting dreams into reality – making the intangible, tangible.
It helps to clear and remove blocks that can free the flow and revitalize both the root and sacral chakras. In this way it is connected to the kundalini energy and has the ability to stimulate and awaken it.
This lovely Black Garnet encourages positive feelings and boosts self-confidence, stabilizes and balances, enhances sense of security, as well as yes! heightening, strengthening, and providing an infinite source of creativity because of that energy stimulation and flow – which also translates physically into increased blood circulation and flow.
Great also for bronchial disorders, calcium absorption – strengthens bones, magnesium and iron, good for eyesight, helps treat cancer, strokes, rheumatism, and arthritis.
It’s a great grounding stone, connects your life force to the fiery Earth’s core, great for the personal journey of self-discovery with integrity, helps work through anger and mistrust challenges, emanates an empowering energy that supports greater commitment, will power, and courage to stay on your spiritual path, strengthens and protects your aura to deflect unwanted and negative energy, calming if you have nightmares, supports good beginnings, solidity in significant relationships, and helps you learn both self-love and loving others in a healthy way as that refection.
In addition, honesty is strengthened and heart and throat chakras are supported to release blocks in energy there – all helping with the expression of your truth.
In continuing to research more about them, I continued to see the support and reiteration for all that I was sensing from this little, powerful stone.
This to include their being an Earth magick stone that connects you with the elemental forces and mysticism to support your work, harness the energies to bring forth goals, and work that magician alchemy.
While feeling a deeper connection to Earth, it will help cultivate your own personal power that is held within your depths of being and perhaps have you realizing your essence more fully. Rooting your energy brings about greater embodiment of who you really are. And the grounding effect it has will be supportive in rebalancing you if you work a lot with high vibration crystals and do a lot of energy work in general.
Apparently Black Garnet/Melanite can be found in several different areas and carries different energy, as well as works differently, depending on its origin.
Some come from Mexico, California, and Russia.
According to some sources the Russian Black Garnet is “absolutely” the most powerful, as it combines both the energies of the Mexican AND Californian Black Garnet.
The ones from Mexico assist greatly for the physical body with their earthy gentle and slow current.
California Black Garnet has a very strong, pure, high vibrational energy that goes straight to working in the ethereal level as it penetrates in the head and crown. It is because of their strong Titanium energy that they support emotional and mental healing more than physical.
So, as you can see, since the Russian Black Garnet integrates both types, it is all-encompassing with how it energetically assists on all of these levels.
All I know, since I haven’t worked with the ones from Mexico and California, is that this little Russian black jewel is definitely potent. I am looking forward to continued work with my new friend and seeing what else I discover.
