Semiprecious Stone
 

The first semiprecious stone
Found in writings of old
Associated with the element fire
Used by Noah, so it's told

Hades and Persephone
May give you a clue
Symbol of pomegranate seed
Properties never of blue

Indians used them as bullets
Mends broken bonds of love
Heals toxins in the body
And gives light from above

Ruled by Old Father Time
Presided over by Lord Shiva
Symbolism of eternity
Said to cure yellow fever!

It is one of the stones
Of the twelve tribes
It is good for the blood
And used in therapy for bones

The list could go on
Garnet has stolen my reason
Research for yourself
A stone for all seasons!
