Garnet is January's beautiful birthstone.
Happy New Year and welcome to the world of gemstones! The first month of the year boasts Garnet as its very own birthstone. This stone represents consistency, honesty and trustworthiness, much like those born in Capricorn, the astrological sign for January. This is also a stone of individuality, and of someone who sets themselves apart from the crowd, which is another typical Capricorn trait.
What is a Garnet?
Garnet is one of 3 stones that have natural star formations within, the others being sapphires and rubies. Garnet generally has four-point stars, but on rare occasion six-point stars have been found within the stone. For all its beauty, garnets are smaller stones, large garnets are rare. However, there is a legend that tells of the King of Saxony (in long-ago Britain) possessing a garnet weighing 468 carats!
