The history of the use of the grenade has several millennia. The first who began to create jewelry on its basis were the ancient Romans, Scythians, Persians and Greeks. For such a long history, the stone changed a lot of names: people of Ancient Greece called him "anthrax", the literal translation is meant "ember", the Romans gave it the name "carbuncle", and for the Russians it was "genisoy", "mealybugs" or "beceem».
In 1270 the alchemist albert Magnus gave him the universal title "pomegranate». Translated from the Latin name of the stone means " like grains». Jewelers of Europe began to use it only in the XVII century. And from 1803 to grenades began to refer not individual stones but a whole group.
