January Birthstone: Garnet

Mined in a rainbow of colours, Garnet is the birthstone of January. It is considered a great gift to symbolize friendship and trust. Legend says Garnets light up the night and protect their owners from nightmares.

What is Garnet?

Garnets are a group of silicate minerals that have been used since the Bronze Age as gemstones and abrasives. Most people associate garnets with their deep red hue. But did you know that garnets are available in almost every colour? Everything from deep orange to vivid green.

Friendship, compassion and devotion are just some of the meanings associated with garnets.
In ancient Egypt, red garnet necklaces were worn by pharaohs and were entombed with their mummified bodies as prized possessions for the afterlife. While in Rome, carved garnet signet rings were used to stamp the wax that sealed the contracts on important documents.
Garnet meaning

In more recent times, garnets have been linked with love and passion, awakening creativity, positive energy, and self-confidence. It's thought by many to be a powerfully energising and regenerative stone, to balance, strengthen and protect its wearer.
