Birthstone of January - GARNET

The Garnet brings piece, tranquility and victory to the wearer. In the old days is was given as a protection to those going on a long journey.  It's name comes from the Greek word Granatum which means seed of pomegranate and that because of the stone's resembles to the seed of the fruit. Garnet comes in deep red but also different hues because of the presence of different elements in the stone.
