Almandine Garnet activates and strengthens the base chakra, our portal of connection to the physical world. It is an excellent stone for those who are a bit ungrounded or who lack energy.
It is also a stone of psychic protection, its relatively dense energies keep one strongly connected to the body, and when one is rooted in this way, it is more difficult for negative energies or entities to attach themselves.
