The January birthstone, garnet, has been discovered to date back as far as 3100 B.C. and the ancient Egyptians. It is found in streams from around the world, including North and South America, Spain and Australia, though the main sources of garnet are in India, Sri Lanka and Africa. Its name is derived from “granatum,” which in Latin means “pomegranate.” This is likely due to its red coloring and its form, which is seed-like. However, garnets can be of various hues. The pyrope garnet is a deep red, while the rhodolite garnet is a variation that has a purplish or rose-colored tone. In the language of gemstones, garnet symbolizes trust and eternal friendship, which of course makes it an ideal gift, especially when that friend is a January baby!
