January Birthstone: Garnet

Garnet signifies eternal friendship and trust and is the perfect gift for a friend.

Garnet, derived from the word granatum, means seed, and is called so because of the gemstone's resemblance to a pomegranate seed.

Garnet is the name of a group of minerals that comes in a rainbow of colors, from the deep red of the pyrope garnet to the vibrant green of tsavorites.

References to the gemstone date back to 3100 B.C., when the Egyptians used garnets as inlays jewelry. Today, the most important sources for garnet are Africa, Sri Lanka, and India.
