January Birthstone
January Stone of the month Garnet

Garnet, the official birthstone for the month of January, signifies Love and Trust. The word "Garnet" is derived from granatum meaning seed and is called so because it resembles to a pomegranate seed.

In Greek mythology, a pomegranate is referenced as the gift of love and is associated with eternity. Now-a-days, Garnet is referenced as the gift of love.

This deep red hue is considered to be the one of the best gifts on 2nd and 6th anniversary. Garnet comes in many colors of rainbow from deep red to vibrant green.

Ancient traditional birthstones:
Arabic: Garnet
Guardian Angel: Gabriel
Hebrew: Garnet
Hindu: Serpent-stone
His Talismanic Stone: Onyx
Polish: Garnet
Roman: Garnet

Garnets are found in metamorphic and some igneous rocks. They are formed under extremely high temperatures and pressure.
Highest quality Garnets come from East Africa. Other regions where Garnets are found are in certain parts of Europe and South America.
Garnets were at the height of fashion in the 18th and 19th century, and are found in many antique jewelry items.
