Red Spessartine Garnet raises our enthusiasm. It reflects the color of passion, energy, and life. It motivates us to action. It is a very strong color—the color of fire and blood. Dark Red crystals embody strong, deep feelings, durable energy and quiet passion. It is a masculine color, particularly useful for increasing devotion and seeing the seriousness of life.
