Garnet birthstone also known as “the sparkling legendary gemstone” is for those born in the month of January. It actually comes in many colours including red, green and yellow. However, Red is the most popular colour and is often used in jewelry because of its exquisiteness.
Garnet is sourced from Brazil, Madagascar, India and the United states. The name Garnet originated from the Medieval Latin Granatus meaning “Pomegranate”. If you want to see it sparkle at its best, look at your gemstone in soft lighting such as candlelight. It is beautiful and pleasing to gaze at.
This Gemstone is somewhat pocket-friendly compared to other red gemstones like Ruby or tourmaline.
Garnet is of medium hardness so you should handle it with care. Store it separately so that harder gems like diamonds don’t scratch it.
