Known as the Garnet of the Sun, Spessartine is one of the lesser-known and rarer varieties of Garnet. Its energizing warmth radiates in shades of dark gold, orange, scarlet and deep red. Crystals can be pale yellow if nearly pure, but are almost always mixed with Almandine Garnet. Spessartine Garnet, which includes Spessartite and Imperial Garnet, takes its name from the Spessart district of Bavaria, and is a magnesium aluminum silicate. The energies of Spessartine vibrate at a high rate, imparting a willingness to help others and strengthening the heart. It enhances analytical processes and the rational mind. [Hall, 139] Yet Spessartine also stimulates aspects of creative abilities and energies, encouraging one to take action toward one's dreams, visions and goals. It is a good stone for artists, writers, dancers, actors and others who express through creative energy. 

Spessartine is physically healing to the reproductive and digestive systems, improving food intolerances, and is used as an antidepressant and to prevent nightmares. Spessartine is used emotionally to activate the analytical processes of the mind, to alleviate fears and provide confidence to change one's life.
It is associated with the Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras, awakening latent creative energies and lending power to one's will. The spiritual energy of Spessartine is effective in assimilating higher levels of inner growth and balance.
Spessartine Garnet utilizes the colors of the sun for its healing rays, in shades of dark gold, orange, scarlet, and red.
There are a host of Angels attracted to these shades, and Spessartine is used to honor three Goddesses. Garnet is the traditional birthstone of January, and Spessartine is a natural birthstone for many born from mid-summer to mid-autumn.
It is the zodiac stone for those born under the sign of Aquarius and utilizes Fire energy. As an Enhancer Strengthener crystal, it is a talisman of protection.
Spessartine Garnet magnifies the vibrations of the Second, or Sacral Chakra, awakening latent creative energies, not only those of sexuality and procreation, but also linked to artistic, physical and mental creativity. Yellow Spessartine also works on the Solar-Plexus Chakra, lending power to one's will. Because it is a Garnet, Spessartine pulls potential realities into manifestation. Therefore it is a stone to be used with care, since it increases the speed at which one's intention comes into physical form.

The Sacral Chakra, or Second Chakra, is located below the naval and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. It is the center of the Life Force of the body, and controls the flow of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body. Gut feelings, intuition, and other "non-linear" communication comes from this chakra. When it is in balance you have grace, feel pleasure in life, find you are flexible and can "go with the flow" and do so in good spirit.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is the energy distribution center and the chakra of relationships. It is located between the ribcage and navel. When the solar plexus is in balance you are free to interpret the world through your own thoughts and emotions and not live in fear of violating the dictums of others.

Spessartine can be used to initiate the analytical processes of the mind, bringing freedom in discovery and facilitating exploration of the rational realms.

[Eason, 119]The energy emitted by Spessartine promotes feelings of happiness from within, and aids in making life more fulfilling.

It helps one to talk about and clear oppressing and embarrassing things regarded as taboos.
