Garnet Earrings for the Root Chakra
The root chakra is also the first chakra. It is located where the legs meet the trunk of the body.
Size: approximately 1/2" coin - or 12mm
Description: Garnets are found in many colors including red, orange, brown, green, pink, purple, colorless and pink, but they are best known for their rich, red color, as is shown in our spectacular first chakra jewel. Think of black cherry soda or dark bing cherries for color. The stone pictured is a sample, but all the material we have is quite similar. When I have purchased garnets in the rough, they are shaped like eight-sided soccer balls that are so dark, they appear black. The rock is then cut into thin slices, letting the light shine through it to show the deep burgundy color. You can expect some small surface pits and inclusions.
Root Chakra Information for Garnet EarringsWhen embarking on chakra study, this is the place to begin. The first or root chakra is centered around our most basic need to survive and thrive. Security, home, safety, family and a connection the earth are all paramount to this chakra. First chakra energy runs through the lower trunk of the body down to the feet. Simply by pressing your feet against the ground, you feel stronger and more balanced. Standing your ground, finding your roots,being surefooted, well grounded or rock solid, are all common sayings that revolve around the first chakra. Communing with nature is a sure way to connect with this part of the chakra system. It is the feeling that we belong to the earth, not the other way around.
