Do you have someone special in your life who is born in January? If you do, Garnet could be a gemstone of choice for this special person. 

 

Those with a January birthday are lucky because garnets are mined in a rainbow of colors: from the common red to stunning oranges, yellows, purples and even greens! Garnet deposits are found all over the world, however, India has large mines, as do Africa, South America and Russia.

 

Red garnet is an exquisitely sparkling, beautiful gemstone that’s pleasing to gaze at. Garnets have an intense sparkle that it is referred to as “fire” by gemmologists. 

 

Tip: if you want to see its sparkle at its best, look at your gemstone in soft lighting, such as candlelight. There, you’ll see the fire that so many people are drawn to. 

 

There are several meanings behind what a granet brings the wearer. Many believe a garnet:

  • is considered a great gift to symbolize friendship and trust
  • will keep the wearer safe during travel
  • will bring love, luck, health, loyalty and friendship to people who are born this month

 

If red is what you’re drawn to, garnets are a fantastic way to start a gemstone jewellery collection because it’s a fairly affordable gem when compared to ruby or pink tourmaline. 

 

If garnet is your loved one’s birthstone, it makes thoughtful gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, Mother’s Day or Valentine’s. It is also the gem that married people traditionally gift on their second and 18th wedding anniversary.
