Grossular Garnet is a Seeker Transformer Crystal. Seeker Transformers are talismans used when the desire is to find a way to transform a part of one's life to a more desirable state. Seekers are used when we need some help to find a new path, a new approach, or in any quest to gain that which we desire but do not yet possess. When they possess the Earth Power of the Transformer, like Quartz, they form crystals that are excellent for seeking new capabilities that will transform some part of our life. Petrified Wood is a very powerful Transformer material and is very highly recommended for self-improvement efforts.
