The garnet is named after the Latin 'granatus' which refers to the pomegranate. This is a plant with red seeds that are about the same color as the red garnets. However, the family is much larger; the term garnet refers to a group of closely related minerals that includes more than twenty species, each with varieties within those species. The five main garnet types are pyrope, almandine, grossulite, andradite and spessartine. Garnets are found all over the world in many varieties.
