Your January birthstone--Garnet

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you guys are having a wonderful start to the new year! To start the new year off, let’s learn about garnets, the January birthstone. “Garnet” is derived from the Latin word “granatum” which means seed, and is so called because of the gemstone’s resemblance to the beautiful red seeds of the pomegranate. Most people only know garnets to come in red but garnets can come in a rich palette of colors: greens, oranges, pinkish oranges, deeply saturated purplish reds, color changing blue, and more.
