Back in the distant past, the Garnet was used to make ornaments for decorating and juwelry. But certainly in the 19th century in Europe. During this time they called the Garnet in my home country the diamond of the poor because this stone is very beautiful but not as precious as diamonds.
Yet the beautiful garnet is a magnifique gemstone and they used them to decorate lots of wonderful old jewelry. Certainly many local jewelry were decorated with Garnets. This stone appears in different colors.
In the last two pictures you will see my collection of Garnet jewelry where the color varies from very dark brown to red and pink/red.
