Garnet - January Birthstone of Month

Garnets are usually red, but can also be found in a variety of other colors. The Garnet is considered the stone of purity and truth. It is believed that Garnets help protect their wearer from evil. It is also the traditional birthstone of January.

Legend has it that Garnet's powers include healing, strength, and protection and it is often worn to relieve inflammations of the skin. It is also believed to regulate the heart and blood flow and aid in curing depression. In earlier times, garnets were exchanged as gifts between friends to demonstrate their affection for each other and to insure that they meet again.
