About the design:

I think I mentioned once how much I like red. In fact garnets are one of my favorite gemstones, all sparkly deep redness, some with hints of yellow, some with purple. Reds are the color of warmth, of comfort, and life and as such, hold a special place in the spectrum of light.

Garnet is a type of silicate and has been a prized gemstone since the Bronze Age. It comes in a multitude of colors, including the commonly known red. Garnet sand can be used as an abrasive and is a frequently used substitute for silica in sandblasting.
