The word garnet comes from the Latin word, granatus meaning grain or seed. This name was given to the garnet because of its close resemblance to the pomegranate seed. The garnet is known for its deep red color, but it also comes in other hues including, muted yellows, oranges, rosy pinks, lime green and violet.
