January Birthstone - Red Garnet
The January birthstone is garnet. It is a beautiful deep red stone. Garnet is derived from the Latin word 'granatus' meaning pomegranate, due to gemstone's resemblance to red pomegranate seeds.
It was used as a powerful talisman, associated with power and fire. Red garnet necklaces were worn by the pharaohs of Egypt, and by the nobility in the Middle Ages.
Garnet is believed to help eliminate negative feelings (depression, guilt) and against inflammatory diseases, instil self-confidence, and improve mental clarity.
It is referred to as the gem of faith, because it bestows safety and protection, as well as promoting happiness, health and wealth.
