Origin 1[]

The Carbuncle Garnet, or just Carbuncle, was alleged to be seen in Latin America. Legends say the Carbuncle has some sort of jewel on its head. Although no firm eyewitness accounts are available, they have been described as small creatures, either birds or mammals. It is certain that they wear gems on their foreheads; such gems come from the brains of dragons. According to myth, dragons have inside their brain a liquid that crystallizes into a solid gem when they die. The legend of the jewel grew up around the Carbuncle creature and many men have supposedly searched for it, hoping to find the precious stone, without success.

Origin 2[]

Carbuncle Garnet may also be based off of a UMA (Unindentified Mysterious Animal), or a cryptid. In cryptozoology and sometimes in cryptobotany, a cryptid is a creature or plant whose existence has been suggested but is not yet recognized by scientific consensus. Famous examples include the Yeti in the Himalayas, the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland, and Sasquatch in North America.
