Calling all January birthstones! Garnet, January's birthstone, represents eternal friendship and trust, and is mined in a rainbow of colors. The name Garnet was derived from the word granatum, meaning seed, after the gemstone's resemblance to a pomegranate seed. Garnets have been popular since as far back as 3100 B.C., when the Egyptians used Garnets as inlays jewelry.Garnets are seen in an assortment of beautiful colors from deep red to vibrant green, along with shades of pink, orange and brown.
Today, the most important sources for Garnet are Africa, Sri Lanka, and India.Folklore tells of Garnets protecting their owners from nightmares throughout the night and protecting travelers against accidents. Believed to have mystical powers, the stone has been worn to relieve skin inflammations, regulate the heart and blood flow, and aid in curing depression.

Garnets are a popular gift to symbolize friendship and trust. They are also the traditional gemstone for the 2nd and 6th wedding anniversaries.
