January Birthstones - Garnet, darn it & More! :D
Garnet is the most widely recognized birthstone for January and it's available in a rainbow of colors, from the deep red Bohemian garnet to the vibrant greens of the Russian Demantoid and African Tsavorite. We also see it appear in the oranges and browns of Spessartite and Hessonite from Namibia and Sri Lanka and in the subtle pinks and purples of Rhododendron.
If you're born in January, you're LUCKY! -You've got so many gorgeous options... You should collect them ALL!
Legend says Garnets light up the night and protect their owners from nightmares. Garnets have long been carried by travelers to protect against accidents far from home. Garnet is the primarily reognized birthstone for January, but its stunning variety of colors makes it a perfect gift for all occasions.
Other perfectly delightful stones for those born in the first month include Rose Quartz, Ruby and Emerald... Did I mention, we have those, too? Well, we DO!
