January's Birthstone - Garnet

Meaning of January Birthstone
For those born in the month of January, their birthstone is the garnet. The word 'garnet' comes from the Latin word for seedlike, 'granatus.' This was a reference to their similar appearance to pomegranate seeds. Most recognize this precious stone as a deep red crystal like the one seen above. However, garnets come in a wide range of colors from brown, black, orange, pink, green, yellow to even blues and colorless. Regarded as a symbol of prosperity, love and commitment, the garnet is also a protective gem thought to keep the wearer safe during long journeys. A perfect gift for your loved one who travels frequently!
