Melanite Garnet

Melanite is one of the three varieties of Andradite Garnet, the other two being Demantoid (green) and Topazolite (yellow green), both rare and highly desired. Melanite is also referred to as Titanian Andradite, due to the presence of Titanium colouring it black. The name Melanite was assigned to this crystal in 1799 by Abraham Werner, after the Greek word 'melanos' meaning black.

Melanite Garnet helps to boost creativity and bring magic into your life. The stone has a strong connection to the Earth and the Base/Root Chakra, which promotes spiritual grounding. The grounding effect helps to keep you balanced and centred, allowing you to face life's challenges with ease. Melanite Garnet is an ideal crystal for those who need a little extra help connecting with the natural world and their own inner self.
