Grossular Garnet are cubed shaped so they are very different looking than quartz (which often have a point,) they are a heavy stone that is also somewhat fragile. Grossular Garnet has no cleavage and the ones I have found remind me of little buds cropping out of the host rock.
Garnet is also used in industry often as a grinding agent but most of us think of the Grossular Garnet as a thing of beauty. The metaphysically Garnet is thought to have strong curative powers. It is worn on the body to protect against poisons. Garnet is also thought to help with depression and when place under a pillow it is used to prevent nightmares and bad dreams. Wear Garnet to help balance your energies, make you feel more uplifted along with increasing your positivity. Of course when you are sending out positive energies you are more likely to draw positive things and people to you, so the metaphysical power of those stone is very useful to those that have had a bit of a down slope.
