The name "garnet" comes from the Latin word "granatus," meaning "seedlike," in reference to the red garnet crystals' resemblance to pomegranate seeds. Garnets come in a variety of colors, including red, orange, yellow, green, purple, brown, blue, black, pink, and colorless, the most common being the red garnet, which is often used in jewellery.

All of the Garnet family have similar physical properties and formations but vary in chemical makeup and colour. The most well-known and recognizable is the deep red-coloured Garnet, which includes iron and chromium, giving it its pomegranate-like colour.
