The word garnet comes from the 14th‑century Middle English word gernet, meaning 'dark red'. This is possibly a reference to mela granatum or even pomum granatum ('pomegranate'), a plant whose fruits contain abundant and vivid red seed covers (arils), which are similar in shape, size, and color to some garnet crystals. Red garnets were the most commonly used gemstones in the Late Antique Roman world, and the Migration Period art of the "barbarian" peoples who took over the territory of the Western Roman Empire
