garnets are a very common and well-known mineral formed through metamorphic processes. they are, perhaps, best known for their status as the birthstone for the month of january. like most minerals, garnets are believed by some to posess magical powers. these include protection, healing, physical energy, and theft management, as well as promoting love, controling sexual energies, calming, and unlocking memories of past lives...
the united states is the worlds third largest producer of garnets, behind australia and india.
garnets are a commonly identified index mineral. when higher grade metamorhpic processes occur, garnets are often formed. they are therefore commonly present in schists and gneisses.
garnets are the historians of the minerals. most garnets are formed by standard metamorphic processes. Others, however, are formed by being rolled between two moving surfaces. This rolling can cause them to pick up and preserve lower grade metamorphic rocks that would normally be destroyed by higher processes sugh as the ones that form garnets. This can give geologists valuable information about how and where the rocks were formed.
