Gemstones meaningsThis gem meaning is closer to the heart. If you are familiar with the mythological tale of Hades and Persephone, you may better picture the meaning of this stone.
Stolen from earth and taken to the underworld, Persephone quelled her hunger on pomegranate seeds.
Little did she know that each pomegranate seed indebted her to Hades, an eternal promise to remain by his side.
The garnet has been likened to pomegranate seeds since medieval times and this has given it a gem meaning of eternity and love.
