The birthstone for January, garnet is a symbol of courage and compassion and is linked with harmonizing energy, stimulating sexual desire, and unleashing the imagination.
Some fun facts about garnet: Garnets supposedly reminded Ancient Greeks of pomegranates, and hence, the name garnet (from granatum). The use of garnet goes all the way to the Bronze Age. Artisans of the Egyptian Nile around 3100 BCE made jewelry with it. Although commonly found in red hues, garnet can also be found in pink, purple, yellow, orange, violet, green, colorless, black and brown.
